WinFF - freeware audio / video converter

WinFF is a frontend for FFMPEG. It's a crossplatform, opensource application that can easily convert any audio or video format to any other audio or video format you need.

It can convert xvid to mpeg to avi to mp3 to wav to flv to 3gp and a lot more. Try out any video or audio format you may have, and this baby can convert it for you. It's free and easy to use.

Try it out for XP or Linux. I love this app and I use it to convert my favorite podcasts to 16k MP3's.

You can also try Cdex for free audio encoding and CD ripping.

I'm currently playing Lufia: the legend returns

No time to blog. Busy finding clients, and busy playing after 8 hours of finding clients.

Lufia, the legend returns is a GBC game. No time to review it, just go to the Wiki right now to see how awesome this game is.

Find the ROM and emulator yourself. Bye.

Gades kicks our collective asses.

Gekiga & Sanctuary

After listening to Geeknights, I decided to read Sanctuary on MangaFox. Sanctuary is supposed to be out of print, so all of you self-righteous types can stop cursing my soul to the fires of hell.

Anyway, Sanctuary is a story about two kids who want to change Japan for the better. Basically, one is going on the high road, while the other is going the easier way. I've only read chapter 8 of the series, so that's all the summary you will get from me.

Oh, okay. It's a political manga with lots of Yakuza action. There's nudity for the perverted nerds, though not that much, and only when the story calls for it.

As an aside, I have to say that I still listen to Geeknights even if I don't post on their forum. I'm one of the hundreds of lurkers in there. I just never posted on any forum before, nor will I ever post in the future.  

I also wonder about Gekiga (spelling?) and about Rym & Scott's Gekiga panel. Is there a transcript or audio recording of it out there, somewhere? I really want to listen to that panel.

Cross Over - better than Slam Dunk?

Nope, it's not better than Slam Dunk. However, if you thirst for some basketball manga action, this series has enough to quench it.

Cross Over is a manga made by Kouji Seo. It's about a class A, Junior high with an ambition to join the strongest high school ball club. Along the way he was recruited by very good natured players from the weakest basketball team in Japan.

Which school do you think he'll pick? Answer me. All together now!

Regardless of which team the ace will choose, this manga is fairly run-of-the-mill. I'm just on chapter 18, but if I compare this one to Slam Dunk, it just won't stack up. That may be solely because the main character is not that lovable, and sometimes the fan service cheapens the story a bit.

All in all, the manga is a fun read with lots of action and laughs to while away the boredom of work during office hours. Though, only if you work from home, because some of the fan service may be NSFW.
