I use cdrdao. TOC file syntax is easy to forget, but I keep some
examples so it only takes a few seconds to refresh my memory.
Same for the command line options (mostly driver) - I just keep
a script in ~/bin.

K3B blew up a speaker (vintage 1970's JBL) some years ago by
playing some 'desktop sounds' at full level to announce it had
finished. I wrote to the author to ask if this could be disabled.
Answer: no, only if you run the full KDE desktop and its config
utility. Since then everything KDE is banned from all my systems. 



There are three of them, and Alleline.
