    Just so ya know...

    I've been messing with Thoggen for a few weeks, now.  Ripping to
oggs IS  a good thing; it moves each piece of media to "our" side of the
paradigmatic fence :) and the compression's comparable.

    Googling to understand the "quality" number (between 23 and 64) is
still a mystery- you'd think they'd move it to 1-100(%) since they've
made everything else simple.  But it *does* take a couple of tries to
decide just how you want it to come out.  It's good software, and easy
to use.


    (I think I'll go try Acidrip, too; I'm not ready to put on my Perl
hat and try to learn transcode...)
