PlayStation Music!

Does anyone like the music they used to hear on their old PlayStation games? Have you ever tried ripping the music from the CD using hardware and software? Well no there is no need to look further!
A top site I found a little while ago called VGmusic has loads od MIDI files for loads of PlayStation, Gameboy and Xbox games. The website is at www.vgmusic.com
And another brilliant site I found today is Final Fantasy Shrine which has loads of MP3 music from video games and anime. The website is http://gh.ffshrine.org/
I've recently completely download the "soundtracks" for Ape Escape and Enter The Matrix - the songs are brilliant!
If you've also read my previous blogs you would have found out that there are also a couple of pieces of software that can rip music and other media directly from the PlayStation disc - I've already tried MediEvil I and II, Atlantis, Spyro 1 to 3, Monsters Inc...

Long Time No Blog

Sorry for not writing a new blog for some time, I've been caught up with homework, as per usual!
Office Alternative
While on the subject of college, I'd also like to mention that for anyone who doesn't have Works or Microsoft Office, and doesn't want to spend about £130 quid buying Office, there are some legal alternatives:
  • OpenOffice has all the same functionality of MS Office, but the only problem is that it cannot import/export properly to/from Access (Databases). Check out the website. The great thing about this office suite is that its completely free!
  • Tesco has recently opened its own range of software including Tesco Complete Office, which appears to have all the features as Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Access - and can apparently import/export between both Tesco and MS Office! Check out the website. Tesco is giving it away for only 20 quid with free Internet support!
Chain Mail - Follow Up
I found an interesting webpage about Internet trolls that you may find on forums. Basically it says you just need to ignore them, just like how I told you to ignore chain mails. Read it here.
