most people are okay with SHN to FLAC converstions these days so long as it is completely secure and verified.

the .st5 generated from the SHNs matching the .ffp generated from the FLACs is positive proof that there is absolutely no difference in the audio.

however, the older way of doing things was to include a wholefile .md5 with a SHN set and now that you've stripped the extra header chunks from cran1995-04-07d1t07.shn and cran1995-04-07d2t02.shn that .md5 will FAIL!

The only reason some ppl are still clinging to SHN is for the sake of the original wholefile .md5s working and now you haven't even got that so there is really no reason not to convert it to FLAC.

You can leave it in SHN format if you wish, of course.

Modern social theory casts a highly skeptical eye on any declaration that a group of persons is without conflict, and insists, on the contrary, that conflict is natural to groups, and even more, is essential to them. -Patrick Henry
