- <para>This section will take you through configuring the Mr. Voice software. Mr. Voice is configured via an external configuration file - this provides the most flexibility in keeping your configuration sane from one version to the next. On Unix, the config file is named <filename>.mrvoicerc</filename>, and lives in your home directory. On Windows, the filename is <filename>C:\mrvoice.cfg</filename>.</para>
+ <para>This section will take you through configuring the Mr. Voice software. Mr. Voice is configured via an external configuration file - this provides the most flexibility in keeping your configuration sane from one version to the next. On Unix, the default config file is named <filename>.mrvoicerc</filename>, and lives in your home directory. On Windows, the default filename is <filename>C:\mrvoice.cfg</filename>.</para>
<para>To provide an alternate configuration file (for example, if you would like to run two separate databases off of the same computer), you can pass the Mr. Voice program the "--config" flag. So on Windows, if you wanted to use an alternate config file, you would run "<computeroutput>MRVOICE.EXE --config C:\MRVOICE-ALTERNATE.CFG</computeroutput>", or on Unix "<computeroutput>./mrvoice.pl --config /path/to/new/configfile</computeroutput>".</para>
<para>If you start Mr. Voice without a configuration file, or if there is an error in your configuration, Mr. Voice will pop up a window asking if you want to create a default or manual configuration. If you choose default, it will set up a fairly standard installation for you. If you choose manual, you will be taken to the preferences window, allowing you to enter and edit the configuration information. Changes are then written out to the appropriate configuration file. The configuration options are detailed below.

<listitem><para>"Invalid" songs (songs where there is an entry in the database, but no corresponding file on disk) now show up in red in the search box, instead of being hidden.

<listitem><para>AAC (Advanced Audio Codec) files, also known as .mp4 or .m4a files, are now supported (playing them requires the proper plugin for your audio player of choice). Encrypted songs purchased from the iTunes Music Store (.m4p) apparently do not work.</para></listitem>
<listitem><para>Mr. Voice itself will offer to perform a default configuration the first time it's run on a new system.

<para>This is both the easiest and hardest part of the equation. It's the easiest because backing up the MP3 files involves only copying them to another place, so that you are covered in case something happens to the files themselves (disk crash, accidental deletion, etc.)</para>
<para>It's the hardest, though, because you're generally talking about a gigabyte-plus of data, which limits your transfer options. Some suggestions for MP3 file backups include:

This is what I do - I have a network card (~$15) in the voice computer, and use an ethernet cable to copy the files over to my laptop. Transfer time is fast. You can also use things like a USB link cable to transfer files between computers.</para></listitem>
