I could have traveled to Tilburg, but instead I choose to go to Huntsville, Alabama.

For the past week I've been backing up my cd collection. I already did this before, but at the time I stored everything in Ogg Vorbis. I decided to do it again, except this time I'm storing everything in FLAC which is lossless. This will give much greater flexibility later on, when a new more popular lossy codec is coming along. So far the operation has been like this:
- Rip CD using Grip to FLAC.
- Write FLAC to DVD for storage.
- Run oggenc over FLAC to store as Ogg Vorbis on my mp3 player / hard disk. Nice thing that oggenc knows how to read FLAC files and preserves the tags.
- Remove FLAC files to clear up disk space.
