You might want to be a little more carefull in your choice
of subjects, as this is a public list, and the MPAA is
cracking down. In other words instead of using copy, use
backup, and you might not want to mention netfix, and copy
in the same sentence.

Now saying that I don't know just how well versed you are in
using Open Source tools. But you might want to read up on
some knowledge.  I will provide a few links that you might
find useful.


Of course this is only some, and might be a little out
dated, but most programs use growisofs and might have a gui
on top of it such as k3b, others. So it might be useful to
read up on it just in case a source dvd does not behave like
it should.  Also you might want to read up on Usenet, and
the various means other Usenet uses besides text groups.
