How to rip DVDs movies

Nowadays storing your movies in DVD is not an option part because we need more space and in the other hand the DVD could be damaged. Probably in the past you were using some popular ripper tools such as AnyDVD or DVDShrink, but one thing you could do differently is to use some opensource alternatives. 

I would like to recommend to you HandBrake, here you can get it. (handbrake.fr) and it is multi-platform so you can install it in Windows, Mac or Linux based OS.

The other important thing about ripping is the video codec format, and my option will be Matroska, which is an open standard free container format, that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks in one file, is intended to serve as universal format  for storing common media content, like movies or tv shows. Matroska is similar in concept to other containers like AVI or MP4 but is entirely open in specification. Will means it was born free to share and is widely supported by the developers community.

Based in my recommendations I hope you change the way you store, play and ripped your DVDs or at least think about it. I would like to hear an "I'll take that on board!"

My recipe for financial success

Different financial experts will offer different solutions for successfully managing your finances. My recommendations are not for everyone, but they have worked well for me over the years. Every month you have a net income – that is, your income after taxes and other deductions. I am going to offer you two situations, one that includes debt and one that does not.
If you currently have debt, this is how I recommend you spend your net income each month:
  • approximately 35% on housing, including utility bills for electricity, water, etc.
  • approximately 15% on transportation, whether you have a car or not
  • approximately 25% on life, including your cellphone, groceries, clothing, going out, etc.
  • approximately 15% on paying off your debt
  • approximately 10% on savings
If you are spending more in any of these areas, it suggests you need to cut your expenses – for example, by moving to cheaper housing. If you don't have any debt, however, change that savings percentage to 25 percent, and your money will increase before you know it.
