    [all variants] Re: Encoding MP3 to OGG

    I'm well aware if that (note the link in my signature to FSF's "Play OGG" campaign)...I'm a proponent of open-source codecs (especially ogg vorbis vs. mp3), but not at the price of sound quality...

    [all variants] Re: Encoding MP3 to OGG

    why would you want to do that? The general rule is to avoid lossy-to-lossy conversion whenever possible (because of sound quality degradation). Most media players support mp3 as long as you add the...

    Any good linux podcasts?

    I was looking at the list here...Quite a few defunct shows--not very encouraging...I tried Georgia Loco's Ubuntu Podcast, but it's totally lame, IMO. Are there any decent ones (end-user, not...

    what about running this in terminal:

    oh, so editing fstab did work (wasn't sure it would). great. Then testdisk is unecessary. As long as it automounts in linux, and you can still boot into windows, it sould be ok.
