Media Library โ€“ Digitizing your DVDs & Blu-rays (Part 2)

Looks like this series will be in 3-parts initially, i.e., it may restart if I decide later to go with a Media server. Here is Part 1. Am a novice at this digitizing a Media Library, so my method is for those with low budgets and no experience either. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Total costs at this point are $189.63 including tax and free shipping. The external Blu-ray burner drive was 42.69, and EaseFab LosslessCopy software was $39.95 on sale for 1-PC. After research, I purchased a Seagate FireCuda ST4000DX005 4TB 7200 RPM 256MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5″ Internal HDD Bare Drive for $106.99 last night โ€“ settled on this HDD after considering reliability, 7200 RPM speed, 3/5 warranty, and costs (there were cheaper & more expensive ones).

I already had some devices/componentsโ€”which saved on my costs, but you may have to buy more items than listed above:

Media Library Digitizing Test โ€“ Total novice here, so there is probably an easier and quicker way than how I am doing it at this point. Still not sure if I will go to digital movies & series since it seems to require lots of time. Movies have been easy so far, but next test will involve digitizing a series like Game of Thrones or Justified or maybe Dark Winds since it is short. Series requires its name plus season plus multiple disks (1, 2, etc.) โ€“ so that test may be too much trouble…I just dunno. Total costs at this point are about $80 for Blu-ray drive and EaseFab software.


Twitter is officially

Opened X this morning and a notification at page bottom informed me that their URL has changed. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘Œ

My main browser is Firefox and the old Twitter bird was still the logo in the Bookmark, tho most of my other browsers had the X logo.

Now, even Firefox has the new X logo!

โ€˜If you donโ€™t think lighting is important โ€“ just close your eyes.โ€™ Some of the distance shots Iโ€™ve seen, in bigger rooms, and various lighting seems to give a milder look (or whatever a better word would be).

Some are even seeing Satan and/or a Satan connection to this wonderful painting!? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Guess itโ€™s true what Plato once said:

โ€˜Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.โ€™

Looking around the internet seems to backup Plato, i.e., lots of different views. I liked it well enough to add two pics to my PicturesAp folder, and also uploaded them to my blog:
