Open Source Project Night

The other day I was very productive, performing a network upgrade of my Ubuntu install to 8.10, and finally getting Handbrake to work.  Which is fantastic mainly because I have a PSP doing media duty and I didn’t necessarily want to make my MacBook Pro do all of the heavy lifting with the encoding work.  It was getting pretty warm.

Handbrake is a great app and the Ubuntu install shares the GUI with the Mac version so there wasn’t any time wasted in getting the settings the way that I wanted them.  Right now I’m just converting some files for the PSP, hopefully I’ll be able to catch up with some of my duties that I’ve been lax with.
