its not intended to be downloaded and burnt to a dual layer disk by the
general public, its intended to be used for pressed media only. I guess
i choose my wording poorly.
No problem. I totally agree this definition, but then I have to disagree
with Bill. It's true that it's not meant for general consumption, but we
should not restrict what we give out to "general consumption". The very
purpose of this is to be given out, to offer advantages over what we
officially offer for download, something special you only get on events.
I don't see this as a problem and even if somebody considers it to be
one, I think the benefits (less shipping, less hassle, better value for
money) are bigger than the concerns.
