I bought this think and clicked on the download link in my e-mail. When I did that, I was told to install Java, so I did. When I clicked on the link again, it again asked me to install Java. Huh??? Since I have Java already installed, where are my downloads? Can anyone help? Thanks.

Is Freak Chouflee’ the first official FZ release with Del Casher? Either way I'm excited. First Bday Bundle I've cared about. And it's so nice to live in a time when we can turn video files into audio files so easily.

I ran into the same thing. I use Google Chrome. So....I closed Chrome, and opened Windows Explorer. Using Explorer, it started downloading with no problem.

The 82 band rocked. I'd love to see more video footage. I'm sure I read somewhere that they have video footage of the "Things that look like meat" solo too. Please release it if it's good quality.

Gotta say I am surprised this is not getting more chatter. I am very happy with this one.

In the notes for Down in the Dew there is no mention of the Apostrophe 40th anniversary edition. Has it been cancelled?

I would love to buy it, but for some reason Barfko is making it a real pain in the ass for Apple users. Instead of making it available on iTunes like previous Birthday Bundles, they're now using this download process that doesn't work on Safari. And this time it's FLAC only, so even if we manage to get it downloaded we have to hassle with a conversion app to play it. What the hell?

The band sounded great playing RDNZL, but the video wasn't so good and the colors were off.

I had zero problems with firefox, the vid plays on my standard windows media player and I use the free winamp player for flac. I'm thankful it is NOT on itunes!

I doubt they have made a decision. I guess if there is a 40th anniversary edition Down in the Dew won't be on it.

I can't get the files to play either. Half of RDNZL plays and then shuts off, and I can't even open the audio tracks. I guess I'll have to wait until someone uplods this stuff on YouTube so I can hear it.

The weird thing is, the audio tracks did finish but the video didn't. But the video at least opens, but shuts down about halfway through. The audio tracks won't open at all.

I guess make sure you have a program (like winamp, as brainpang mentioned) that can play FLACs.

I do NOT have a Mac, but I used this software, downloaded for free. I am including a link to the Mac version. Hope this helps: http://www.any-video-converter.com/prod ... _freeware/
