I've not spent much time on Free Software recently, for various reasons.
I found a useful piece of software for writing out podcasts, MP3s, etc. -- mp3cd -- point it at some MP3s and off you go. Although you might want to edit the cdrdao TOC file before actually burning the CD, to add CD-Text descriptions of the tracks.
Getting closer to porting File::ExtAttr to Solaris & *BSD. I have them all running in VMware-server beta on my x86_64 box. It's pretty impressive that they all work on that combination -- i386 OSes running on x86_64 Fedora Core 4. Big up VMware!
