The reason I have ripped my CD collection is that I run an MP3 server on my
LINUX box.  I can listen to my music from anywhere I have internet access.
I have also converted my LPs to CDs and then ripped them as well ( I have
over 1000).  So my music collection is pretty good sized.  It is nice to
have my entire collection available to me when I am at work.  Just my two
