It Made My Day!
So, totally geeking out here. I've been using Ubuntu, which is a Linix OS, for about 3 months now. And yesterday I got to prove to myself, yet again, that it totally rocks. I needed to strip the audio track off some DVDs that I'm transcribing. Now, I totally did not know how to do that at the beginning of the day. But I have friends in high places! In this case, J, who works at Google. Yeah. Google. Score! Actually, I started off talking to his wife, Coi, who is no slouch in the tech department. She got me going, but we ran into a problem, so J came on to sort it out proper. So, J walked me through the process of stripping the audio file, and it worked! And I managed to then go back and do the whole thing on my own 7 more times! Yeay! That's not the bit that made my day, though. After walking me through the process, J changed his GChat status to 'omg. surrounded by hot linux hacker grrls!' IMMD!
