NEC ND-3550A

Dear NEC ND-3550A (my nice DVD DL burner, installed on my desktop system),
I love you. Being able to burn at 8x is a nice change from my slower, less compatible burner I have at home.

Soon... someday.. I'll get you Dual Layer DVDs to toast. Just wait...

Ben

P.S. thank you for being cheap too. :D At $40, I think you were quite worth it.

That aside, I've chosen the worst time to back up my files to DVD. I have an MP due monday 11:59PM, a large checkpoint MP also due monday.. probably around 10 PM. Then there's midterms thursday and friday, and then another on tuesday.

I'm not ready for all this. Where is my time machine?!?

"Apple Embeds Poem For Thieves In OS X"

Collapse )The poem reads:

"Your karma check for today: There once was a user that whined his existing OS was so blind, he'd do better to pirate an OS that ran great but found his hardware declined. Please don't steal Mac OS! Really, that's way uncool. (C) Apple Computer Inc."Collapse )

LiveJournal Spiffyness!

In a few minutes we're going to be turning on draft support while updating your journal. This feature automatically saves what you've typed every ten seconds, in both plain and rich text modes. When you successfully post the entry the draft is cleared. If for whatever reason you navigate away from the page, or your browser crashes, when you come back to it you will be prompted to restore from the saved draft. Hitting cancel will clear the draft on the server, as well as deleting everything in the update box will clear the saved draft once the ten seconds have gone by...

Yay draft support! Not like I use it anyhow....

Or rather Japan Intercultural Network @ UIUC.

Since the website is in flash (pretty, but... a pain to update) and I don't have enough time to change things yet, the upcoming events (As posted on the J-Net facebook group) can be found here:
