Furniture.

[ #2956 ]
I just bought a brand new kitchen table and 2 chairs to go with it. No more eating at the couch! woo hoo!
While we were at the store, I also picked up a big CD rack. Now all my CDs have real and proper homes, rather than being stored in a trunk.
And, as I suppose is inevitable, they cry out to be cataloged and ripped. While this may be geeky enough for some, I envision this goldbergian (or, if you're british, gormenghastian) contraption made of legos and a barcode scanned that would sort them for me by looking up UPC codes. This device looks vaguely like a library robot in my mind... I have yet to requistion funds from my wife for initial development.

    Just rip them. Then the directory listings of the CDRs you save the rips to, can serve as a catalog of them all.

    The big question is: OGG or MP3? On the one hand, I think I like OGG's audio quality better -- less shwishy.

    But on the other hand, at least the OGG encoder I have is much slower than an mp3 encoder running at a comparable bitr

Not quite adequate, as I'll need to figure out who I'm loaning what out to, or what I can safely give away (3 copies of Spiritchaser [dcdwithin.com]?). The big question is: OGG or MP3?
