DVD Shrink: Shrink your DVDs to fit DVDR! Apr 30 2004

DVD Shrink: Shrink your DVDs to fit DVDR!

What is DVD Shrink?

DVD Shrink is software to backup DVD discs. You can use this software in conjunction with DVD burning software of your choice, to make a backup copy of any DVD video disc.

DVD Shrink will also burn your backup DVD, if you have installed the latest version of Nero. You can download a demo version of Nero here. If you already possess alternative burning software and prefer to stick with it, then you can still use DVD Shrink. The output from DVD Shrink can be saved as files on your hard drive, which you can then burn with software of your choice.

DVD Shrink is free software. You should never pay for DVD Shrink.

For making backup copies of your DVDs. I might try this sometime…



Once upon a time, we the people sang the songs and told the stories and generated our culture from the bottom up. Today, a handful of mega corporations like Nike generate a commercial, mindfuck, pseudo culture from the top down. Now it’s time to take it back. . . to rethink the cool!

I am such a BoingBoing… directed? individual.

The Uberhacker.Com Wargame is PHP based. The best way to understand how to win, is to know how to program in PHP. It is also possible to analyze data from other interactive Web programming languages and hack scripts without necessarily knowing the language. Below are guides to the PHP programming language, and content to help you win the Wargame. Apr 27 2004

Joined today. I’m hoping to someday maybe hook up with some other bloggers in the area. For some reason I feel already a sense of community since we’re all kind of doing the similar thing.

Anyways, to anyone from the group, if you’re reading this, I hope we can get together sometime! 🙂

Naomi Writes – Good mechanic experience in CA Apr 21 2004

My sister – Naomi Writes

Let me explain. Periodically my tires go flat. I’ve had them fixed several times and finally the tire guy said that the problem was that the chrome on the inside of my wheel was peeling off and the tires would no longer hold a bead to the rims. His suggestion was that I purchase new rims. I had called various tire shops looking for new rims for my 1992 Inifiniti M30 and my rims are apparently quite rare (none in CA) – and expensive.

My sister saved $455 because a mechanic decided to help her rather than charge her for something she didn’t really need. Nice. 🙂 Software > WordPress/b2 Hacks Apr 21 2004

Just installed and I love it!!! Check it out by clicking different styles at the bottom of the Admin menu on the sidebar. Just shows how powerful the whole CSS concept really is. Nice semantic XHTML markup with different stylesheets applied. Nice. Software > WordPress/b2 Hacks

WP Style Switcher

This hack allows your visitors to change on the fly between CSS skins you make available. Installation instructions are in the README. You can see it in action in my Golf section. Latest release: Version 1.2, 2004-03-31.

The png-backs is the default style that is basically the style I developed for this site. It uses translucent .pngs to create a nice big-background image effect.
