The restrictions on getting out and about during the pandemic occasionally remind me that time is slipping by—although some days, “slipping” doesn’t quite feel like the right word. But it also reminds me there are more than a few tasks around the house that can be great for restoring the sense of accomplishment that so many of us have missed.

I had never heard of this audio ripper Asunder, though it appears to exist for many years (I usually sticked to k3b which I know from Knoppix live cds many years ago). It is available via Flatpak. The article also mentions problems with cd info lookups, and offers an alternative for that.

Nice writeup, I use both of those programs too (started during lockdown as well).
