I feel bad sifting through my list of software sometimes, because I run up against programs that still work fine, but just aren’t practical any more.
This time, just to test if it worked, I actually made an audio CD (yes, I know, an actual audio CD with, like, music on it) and spun it up. That’s dedication.
And voila! jac delivers.
I had to modify the configuration file in ~/.jac to redirect the output to /dev/snd and prevent the attempt to contact CDDB, but other than that* … just as good as the day it was released, way back in 2009.
But I still feel bad. jac works and probably will continue to work for a long time, but I still have to admit: it took me longer to actually scrounge up an audio CD, than to get jac working upright.
The times, they are a-changing. 😐
*Don’t forget to unmute your CD player. That took me a while to figure out. …
