Question: Cockos' domain is not reachable when the clock is out of sync, is this by design or some default value at the web server? It isn't something that happens often but if you use VMs with snapshots etc the clock might take a while before it syncs etc.

    Hmm it's probably a function of the browser and it verifying certificates? You can use http://reaper.fm/ if you want to avoid TLS

Question: Hi Justin, how do you get through programming ruts? Do you ever get stuck? Any advice for the wannabe programmer?

    Does that mean lack of motivation or lack of solutions? Lack of motivation -- do other things (run, hike, play music, paint, whatever). Lack of solution -- well, usually you come up with something that almost works, then go from there. :) Or change the problem to make it solvable. Sometimes these all fail though, then you shelve it and find something else to do, and maybe return to it, maybe not?

Question: In the era of Windows 95, how Microsoft could expect from users to automatically know how to play the game Minesweeper? Today, we have internet everywhere, but not widely available that time. Tbh, I even don't know now how to play this game. Do you know? Also, Windows 95 sounds like much newer version than Windows 10, Microsoft's version numbering logic is weird, haha.

Question: A hypothetical question - if you weren't a programmer and didn't made REAPER and if you got a job offer from NASA and Federal Reserve System, which job will you choose? (former is related to space stuffs and latter is related to finance stuffs, as you know). In short, which job do you like better than the other one?
Asked by Abhi (117.197.4.x) on April 20 2019, 11:18am
Reply on April 20 2019, 3:27pm:
    I’d probably go with whichever job looked more interesting... which would probably be NASA, but you never know the NASA job could also be incredibly boring and pointless. I did a short internship at Ames in high school and the work was pretty boring (though the experience was positive!)

Question: When songwriting, do you prefer using a notebook with pen or pencil? Or would you rather type on your keyboard?

    I try both but fail miserably, usually I end up trying to improvise over and over until I get it... then pull the best take from the recording.

Question: Can I use your 'PathSync' software for syncing ebooks, music and videos between my Windows laptop and Android phone? I always needed a software which can sync my messy flies and folders between my two devices and it was such hectic for me to manually do it. Sometimes, I download stuffs from my phone, sometimes from my laptop. Since PathSync is in BETA version, I wonder maybe sometime it can corrupt my syncing and may not copy properly? Are you planning to release stable version soon?

Reply on April 16 2019, 3:13pm:
    Maybe, it's beta because of the UTF-8 additions, but it's probably reasonably stable.
