[Thursday 19th October]
Another very uneventful day. Japanese curry for dinner, which came out a bit of a disappointment really.

One positive thing about this largely very dreary week has been my new iPod. I've been transcoding my Sherlock Holmes DVDs to watch on it, and also downloading lots of podcasts and music from iTunes, etc, etc. I'm using it on the train to and from work, as well as while I'm at the office - somehow it seems more convenient to listen using the iPod rather than via my PC. In fact I'm even using the iPod when I'm back at home - which is of course quite daft as all the content on there is just a subset of what's on the Mac Mini - so I could just as well listen to it there. Still, you know what it's like when you've got a new gadget...

Certainly do!! :) I've just sold my LifeDrive and bought a (gasp!) PSP. Now I will have to try doing my own conversions of video for it. Any suggestions would be gladly received!

Nigel - Handbrake lets you transcode DVDs to PSP movies too!

I heartily recommend using the alternative frontend called "Instant Handbrake" - it makes the process really effortless.
