I read the excellent guide on DVD ripping using DVD Decrypter. The quote at the top of the page made me laugh: http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/small_dvd_2_dvdr_page_2.cfm "This piece of software is probably the greatest technological achievement United Kingdom has ever given to this world". Come on... Ever heard of a man called Charles Babbage? He was British and invented a primitive computer some 170 years ago! Today, he's known as the 'Father of Computing'. The British also invented the Television and Telephone! How can a piece of DVD ripping software be the "greatest technological achievement United Kingdom has ever given to this world"? Next you'll be telling me the Americans put a man on the moon!
