Alright so I myself can't wait to (get a job) go to the GGF LAN on the 2-3rd of october.
Details if your an aussie are here -> www.lansmash.com <-
I looooooove lans. Can't get enough of them. It's like shoving a needle in my veins and being hooked up to heroin for the entire weekend.
Basically I love just leeching as much as I can (I also upload a fair dinkum) and then spending the next month sorting and categorizing all the TV/Movies/Docus/Games etc.
Finding out what's good and what's junk
Currently my OS and a few steam games are running off C:, which is my SSD (Super Quick). Got the bad boy off ebay for $121 AU which is a bargain. Only problem is it's small. Which is cool, I haven't played many games recently (Killing floor / tf2 / hf2 ), it's the speed of windows booting up and bottlenecks that i'm worried about.
D: - Says it has movies but currently its just TV shows, I have over 1TB of TV and that will soon increase next LAN. This is why I need the 2TB heh, I'll fill the 377GB in a few hours.
E: - That was my original OS HDD, it's a RAID0 of 2x 500GB drives. Currently it's my bitch drive, which I load all my DVD rips onto and then sort them onto the other drives.
H: Elements - Portable drive 1TB has all my movies on it temporarily. Once I get the 2TB then movies are going onto D drive.
I: Jazzys Portable - This just has anime and documentaries on it and some programs applications.
So I've found out that my favorite series (Buffy / Angel) were not at the LANs. And a friend wanted me to get them, so since I had the DVDs I took matters into my own hands. I wanted to rip all DVDs that I did have as backup onto my storage devices.
I have found a good DVD Ripping software that i have uploaded at the end of this post.
Basically bypasses protection software and can rip straight to AVI files (worked better than mkvs)
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=NE58B94O - It's an .exe file so your antivirus may think it's bad.
Remember only use this program to BACK UP your files. They aren't for sharing with other people.
