OGMRip: The DVD Ripper!

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

You may be wondering: What is OGMRip? OGMRip is a program that can rip as far as I know DVDs. All you have to do is open OGMRip > Click File Load > Click the Load button > Click what ever you want on the image > Click Extract > Then click extract again. Now all you have to do is wait. In the end it should all work out and you have what ever medium you put in your DVD drive.

That is all for today,

More will follow today about me going away on friday and if I will continue to post while I am gone.

Gnomebaker: A CD/DVD burning application

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

This is practically the 2nd part of the post yesterday as I put the shows as a .iso and today I am burning them with Gnomebaker. For the most part Gnomebaker looks great, works well and has a lot of functionality. The functionality is great as I can burn DVD Images, CD Images, Video DVDs, Video CDs, Backup DVDs, and Backup CDs and after the burning is complete it tells you how long the application had taken to burn the media on to the medium, For me it was 15 minutes on a 2x. This program is efficient and works quite well. Normally I have to figure out what went wrong but this time it worked without any trouble at all. The application looks great with its GUI.  I really like Gnomebaker and not only that I will use it again. This DVD that I started burning at the beginning of the post is now done. Screen shots will be put up later.

DeVeDe: A DVD Authoring Tool

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Well you may be asking what type of program is DeVeDe? It is a DVD authoring program where you can put video clips or movie files into a DVD that will playback your movies or clips. I found this program in the Ubuntu Repositories along which I will be reviewing a few others along with it over the next few days or weeks.

DeVeDe is very easy to use. I opened it up clicked on a few files to put them in changed a few settings and then press create. It is really that simple to create a DVD that will work in Linux.

I really am liking this program a lot. I have not been able to do this before in Linux and I hope this great program gets even better. Many people might even try this out which would be great for the developers to get some bug fixes in.

Thank you for reading,

Webserver for upgraded to Hardy Heron 8.04.1

Monday, July 28th, 2008

Well Hardy Heron has been out for a while, but to my surprise I had not upgraded my webserver. Last week sometime with the help of Tom Dryer from I had some problems concerning the sites not showing up but pinging the server worked. I figured it out later that that was the router’s problem and I could not find a way to fix it. So I decided to back everything up and reinstall the web server. I downloaded and installed the Ubuntu 8.04.1 server cd and it was up and running in minutes. All I had to do was install a GUI (graphical user interface) and set up some programs. Now everything is running smoothly and I am happy.

The Post Situation

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

This is one of the many problems I face as I write these posts: running out of things to talk about. As you may know I have gone back to Windows Vista on my laptop and i have to say it is not doing too bad for something so slow. I do like Ubuntu and I will go back to it this week sometime, not sure when, and don’t get me wrong I love Linux, it was just I have some monkeys jumping on my back to hurry up and finish with Linux so that they could get help with windows and I have to say that is a pain. So this week I am going back to linux, it maybe another distribution than Ubuntu, like Mandriva One 2008.1 or maybe PCLinuxOS. Though I will decide and get the move on with it.

I will have a post that is coming out tomorrow, Monday July 28th 2008. I hope you like it,

IE8 with Google Toolbar: Problems?

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

I have had this one trouble with the new IE8 beta with the Google Toolbar. The Google toolbar would crash IE8 which would restart the browser and then would happen again in a continuous loop. The only way to fix this problem is to turn off the Google Toolbar via Tools>Toolbars>Google Toolbar. This gets rather annoying after a while so I decided it would be better to turn it off.

If you have any problems with the IE8 Beta you can leave a comment here about it. (Comments are on moderation so do not post them twice.)

Review of Flock 2.0 Beta (two)

Monday, July 21st, 2008

Flock is a great browser which is for people that are very social. I for one am not very social, though I am going to not make any judgment for this in any part of my review.

This browser is cool looking, fun to use, and enjoyable to work with. I really do like this browser and may get my mom to use it after a while.

This browser has built in blogging, Facebook, Twitter, Digg, and much much more. Right now I am using the Digg and Facebook integration on Flock. You can figure out my Facebook name, and you can add me if you want, though do not expect me to go on very much.

This blogging feature is great as I am using it to write this post with it. Hopefully this works or I am going to write this all over again.

Flock is very nice to use and I may use it again sometime. Overall I believe that this is cool and I would recommend it to anyone. I will give this 4.5 out of 5. Remember this is a beta.

This Feature is how I posted todays post.

Review of the TRENDnet Wireless N Router

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

As you may have known over the last couple days my website for has been down. Yesterday my old 802.11G router died. So I had to get a new router. I had a little trouble setting up this 802.11N router so that I could get my server running on the web again. I figured it out this morning around 10:30 AM. I may have had it up for longer, though as I have just found out my firefox 3 doesn’t like to show that website anymore. TRENDnet is a nice router company. It makes pretty good routers. The router I bought last night cost me around $45 with taxes. It was $50 off the original price which is a nice change from what these routers usually cost. I do not know if they are clearing these routers out but these routers are very nice. This router was smaller then my last two routers. With this one working I am glad to have something of this going around and serving my pages that I have so hard to write. 

If you are wanting a wireless router that is at the N caliber then now is probably the chance to get one.

WordPress 2.6 is Out!

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

Hello everyone, I just upgraded from WordPress 2.5.1 to WordPress 2.6. It was really not that hard, though there was a problem when upgrading the askimet to the latest update. I had to delete the askimet folder from the plugins directory and the upload the new askimet to get it working again. That is all for now.
