My nephew came over today. He got his first mp3 player.
He has 10 cd's I was going to rip and then put on it.
I hate to admit this but, I ended up doing 9 on my
XP laptop using Media Player in less time than it took
to do 8 of 14 tracks with Rhythmbox. That is so very sad
in my eyes. I have a good computer and yet from the looks
of it, you would think I had crap.

I might try banshee to test it out.

What do you use to rip cd's?
