Use MEncoder to remux a DVD image to a single MPEG2 file

OK, This is really just another "note to self", but someone might find it useful:

% mencoder {PATH}/VIDEO_TS.IFO -ovc copy -oac copy -of mpeg -o {OUTPUT FILE}

That's it (It runs quite fast due to the lack of any transcoding). This assumes your DVD only has a single title, but I suspect it's possible to select which track of a multiple-video image somehow (I might update this article if I ever need to do this).

Multitouch drivers for Dell Mini-12 Synaptics touchpad

This is really just a "Note to self" (For next time I have to reinstall the blessed OS) that the Synaptics drivers that enable the multitouch functions for my Dell Mini 12 are the HP ones referred-to here:
It's still a bit clunky, but works more-or-less.

That is all.
