Ripping my dvd collection

So a while back we had a smallish earth quake, which made my shelves, which were none-to-sturdy anyway, decide the walls were no longer where they wanted to be. I came home to dvds strewn across the floor, and more-or-less, that’s where they’ve stayed ever since (in a slightly neater form, anyway).

About a month or so ago, I decided I would digitize my movie collection, and throw them on one of my home servers. Yes, I have multiple. Yes, there is something wrong with me. Anyway, after finding xbmc works fantastically out of the box on ubuntu, and uses upnp to advertize media to my xbox, it was a no-brainer. The only problem is it takes sooooooooo long to rip a dvd. I’m getting to the point where I might just bittorrent them because it’s faster than ripping the ones I already own. I wonder what the legality of that is.
