Tip: you might be interested in my DVD ripping guide ^_^
Why should you spend money for an alarm clock or a software that does an equivalent job, when you can just use you Linux box? Well, most likely you use cellphone... but if you have the computer switched on all day long you can also try and do it yourself. You may already have all the software that you need to make it work, it's done by you, it's highly customisable, and above all it's more fun. This short tutorial will guide you step by step in creating an MP3/ogg alarm clock using your computer, it works with all Linux systems, and can easily be modified for MAC OS X, *BSD, well you got it.

Hi, this short tutorial aims to be a guide for those who would like to back up a DVD using Linux. If you like nice and clear GUIs I suggest you to use the excellent Handbrake, but if you are interested in understanding what really happens when ripping a DVD and have complete control over the operation you will find this guide quite useful.
At first I will start with a general overview to clarify the situation about DVDs, then I'll switch to a description of the script I made, along with its usage. Remember that this does not pretend to be an exhaustive study about DVD encoding, it is a simple introduction to this beautiful World, for further information I suggest you to follow these links:
