I just grabbed abcde, a CD ripper/encoder script for Linux. (Which is in Debian, so if you're fortunate enough to be running this most excellent of distributions, just apt-get install abcde and you'll have everything you need.) Just pop a disc in the drive and run abcde, it does the rest. Niiiice. There goes my last excuse not to rip my paltry CD collection...

It seems to be using Ogg Vorbis encoding instead of MP3 by defaul, which is cool since XMMS plays it and it seems like a good format. (The variable bitrate thing seems like a really good idea, despite my not knowing anything at all about audio.)

Sleep. Sleep would be good.
