<myLife>While boyfriend is busy ripping and sorting our CDs into an amazing music collection, I try and reduce our DVD collections to a reasonable amount of shelves. In the end, it should fit on a large amount of 2Gb hard drives and I’ll stack discs in the attic.</myLife>

To make my ripping job easier, I created an Alfred command :

echo <mypassword> | sudo -S diskutil unmount /dev/disk4
echo <mypassword> | sudo -S hdiutil makehybrid -o /Users/<myuser>/DVDRips/{query}.iso /dev/disk4

And now, all I have to do is insert a DVD, call Alfred and type Rip <Title>. Clean and simple. <myLife>i Like Alfred </myLife>

    I enjoy playing with my computer(s), listening to Bob Dylan (and related artists) and watching movies (especially if they were directed by Martin Scorsese or John Cassavetes). Sometimes, I play a little guitar... If not doing any of the above, I am either riding a small red bike around Paris, or, making videos. About my videomaking please check out World Wide Angle and its blog.
