After you download all the Shorten (.shn) files for a particular disc or show, you want to verify that the files are not
corrupted or otherwise unusable before you burn them to disc or host them on your file server. We do this by checking
the downloaded Shorten (.shn) files against an .md5 file. An .md5 is a simple text file that contains a "fingerprint" of each
When you perform an md5 check, you are comparing the fingerprint from the files you downloaded to the fingerprint of the
files on the server you downloaded from. If the md5's (fingerprints) match, you have an uncorrupted Shorten file.
