Hiya folks -
Just another update:
As you recall some months ago, I came to Ubuntu in search of moving to
it and converting my iTunes collection into ogg files.
This is complete and have been happily adding to my music
collection with both burning the purchased tunes to cd then ripping
them. In addition, my pre-ripped CD's that were in mp3 format, I
converted with help you you all and an app called mp32ogg.
Since then, I managed to remove 2 FreeBSD servers from the mix

One, an intel box, is now my archiver using BackupPC. This was
an install that was so easy (compared to using the source tarball on a

use for a few eggs that I run for a few friends. I converted that box

install to the final egg conversion).
My final Ubu-project will be installing Ubu on yet another
Ultra that will be my php/MySQL development box starting this

smoothly. Well, it would have however, it would require me quitting my
job to devote the time needed to complete this in the same time-frame
I just wanted to offer this to the people that work damned hard
on this project - that the effort they put forth - IS paying off.
As always, TIA.
