Re: How to "copy" Flac Fingerprints onto the upload audio page?

Yes, of course. Changing the suffix just makes the confuser easily recognize that it is just text, and to open it with note/word instead of, well, being confused by a Rocky The Flying Squirrel suffix... hehe

BTW, you'll still need a .ffp file in the torrent - maybe make a copy to change suffixes so as not to screw up the torrent with missing / altered info... Don't make a 99% error by screwing up a file!
