  4. [SOLVED] Re: remestersys - filesystem is larger than the iso9660 ?

    Eh, Ubuntu Customization Kit (uck) worked for a while ... then it didn't. I haven't tried it in a LONG time, so maybe it's not "broken" anymore. Couldn't hurt to check it out. Good luck!

    [ubuntu] Re: how to batch convert with ffmpeg?

    Well, Perl does offer some wonderful modules like WWW::Mechanize, LWP, and Net::FTP for network communications and file exchange. But that script would be significantly more complex.
