A few weeks ago I decided to rip my entire CD collection (several hundred albums) to high-quality digital format. About four years ago I did the same thing, except I used lower-quality output and I only did some selected songs.

It turns out to be a pretty big undertaking, simply because I have so many CD’s. In the end, my approach was to set up a little “rip station” where I could cruise through them. Note the stack of three laptops here, and the monitor showing the rip program for each one.

I still have a few hundred to go, but soon I’ll have everything on the ol’ hard drive and can use the CD’s for, oh, home decor or something.
