    Only one really, just about every audio/video conversion tool out there is just a pretty wrapper around ffmpeg and/or lame .

    Today in Let's Be Aghast: the beautiful machine I purchased from Japan has a leprous flywheel and I'm not entirely sure how to tackle it.

    What is that yellow crud? Why does it have lumps? ::kozi::
    I saw someone online making reference to very carefully sanding the flywheel while it's running, but that seems like it would very easily result in disaster. Maybe I'll use some hexane and see if anything happens to wash off with a good swabbing.

    EDIT: found a picture of one that looks much newer and unstained, but still warty:
