It may not be news to a lot of people, you may already have it, but I added "pdf download" to firefox! I like it. For instance, in the past if I saw some info on a web page, I used to either write it down or copy and paste. Then more than likely I would lose it. Pdf download puts an icon in the top right hand of firefox and it's just a matter of clicking the icon, and the web page will be converted to pdf and downloaded for you. I find this very handy for saving my blogs in case I lose...

Looks like Ubuntu wins!

I have a DVD disc that I wanted to watch on my computer, but it won't! Anyway, it's mine I bought it so I decided to try K9copy which if it worked, will create a 4.7 gb backup copy.

K9copy comes with a wizard, so I found this pretty straight forward, it dealt with the compression for me. I sat there for a few minutes just to make sure it had started to do something.
