Ripping for fun and profit...

OK, no profit. But I've finally ripped all my CDs (almost - turns out my Pulp Fiction CD is missing. I opened the case, nothing inside - anyone have it? Guess I'll buy another one. And I haven't ripped my Stand Alone Complex OST1 yet because I need to swap it - I have a faulty one) - 11028 songs, 31.6 days, 41.35GB. I ripped everything as 128Kbps AAC.

I need to make time for my 'media server' conversion of my old desktop box ASAP - my laptop drive is now almost completely full, I had to uninstall software I don't use (like MS Office) to make room to finish ripping. I need a bigger server, and I'll feel better with RAID - everything is just on this one drive now.

I'm debating weeding out duplicates from the list. I have a number of singles, collections, etc, which have tracks that I also have from albums. But I don't know if it is really worth the work, there aren't *that* many.

Also, as you can see from the link, the text version of the iTunes Library isn't very readable. Before I reinvent the wheel, does anyone know of a decent PHP or Perl script that can turn the iTunes XML library file into HTML, or, better, do it dynamically for sorting, etc? I can write one, but if there is a good one I'd rather not waste the time.

Now I need to make some food. I emailed in sick this morning and spent most of the day in bed. I feel OK now, but I was completely non-functional this morning. Now I'm getting hungry...
