It's an iPod Xmas

I got a nano for Amo. My dad got a video for me and my step-mom. My step-sister got one for her boyfriend. I'm waiting for my kickback, Apple, thankyouverymuch.

I found a GPL app called Handbrake that will rip DVDs to mp4 so you can put them on the iPod. Of course, I would never do this because it violates the DMCA, even though I own the media and fair-use copying rights given to me by Congress. If you are in a region of the world where this isn't illegal, I would recommend this app and even contributing to their project.

So sad that MNF is ending on ABC tonight. Their last game looks great in HD, head and shoulders above anything ESPN-HD does, and it's in DD5.1. I'm still enjoying all the lesser bowl games on ESPN though. Come on, Memphis v. Akron?! Game on, bitches!
