A New Year and another day!

Posted 01-02-2007 at 03:20 AM by hagies

New Year has come and gone, and all the tourists have that strange look in the eyes "where did the holiday go?" and all they seem to talk about is going home and back to work! Had a look at all my clients servers, Yep RDP and all, all up and running and seem to have very minor headaches, couldn't have asked for a smoother start to the New Year. I have a small query on a wireless Wan, have to move a PC for the marketing department of one of my clients, and last but not least a router has gone down, I will check to see if the power has gone down or what caused it, and that about the sums up the little complications in my life!

The weather is all a man could wish for, clear, cloudless with the temp probably topping out at 24degs C and makes for one of those awesome days that you wish that you were on the beach and not in the office. The kids are watching Disney's Cartoon Channel downstairs (I work from home), I'll drag them off to the beach for a walk a bit later. First have to tackle the few remaining items (chores) and then we can disappear to the beach. Later this evening, I have to continue sorting out my music. I have decided some time ago to rip all my CD'S to mp3's and then pack the CD'S away and hold thumbs my kids don't get hold of them again. Man, they can scratch and destroy CD'S, in no time at all. I use k3b to rip the CD'S, Amarok is linked to a mysql database to index and play them, it works well although it took me a bit of time to get the system running smoothly!

Lookin around the Internet this morning; between all the other things I was doing; I found a very neat little ripper called "audiokonvertor". I was looking for a utility that could rip all my m4a tracks from my ipod into mp3 format. Some of the original CD'S have been trashed by my 5 year old so I had to make a plan to get my music back, anyway this little number works directly from KDE by right clicking on the audio file and converts the track/s to mp3. I still have to work out how to get the naming convention right and the same as my standard structure I use but that is for another day. I suppose the simplest would be to read the manual. Anyway so be it - Later!
