Verbatim DVD+R DL 10 pack


Well, while I was over a the mall picking up a prescription....I decided to check out what is out there in Verbatim DVD DL media.

My usual preference is DVD-R, though DVD+R seems more widely available. I wasn't sure if I was going to buy, it was more to see how much. Though I want to burn those images for "Strange Days at Blake Holsey High" that I've been working on. Namely because I've run out of space to have both images and the raw input data on my system....actually, I can't get to working on "Conclusions" until I address my space problem.

First I checked Walmart, because that's where my prescription refill was waiting at, they had the 3pk for $11.88.

I then walked over to Best Buy, and then decided to go past them and check out OfficeMax first.

In OfficeMax I spotted that they had the 10pk for $19.99 after instant rebate. Well, for that price, I couldn't pass on I snapped it up and that concluded my shopping trip.

Now to burn Season's 1, 2 and 3 to DVDs and try them out....wonder if there's a marathon in my future. Kind of bad, since I have purchased DVDs that need watching (namely the Firefly TV DVDs, and then the Serenity movie DVD....)

Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers


:idea: While laying in bed, getting ready to face the new day, an idea popped into my head.

I should hit Google and try to solve an annoyance that had happened to my computers that I couldn't figure out when it started, etc.

At first I searched on progressively longer search of "right click multiple open no longer works", finally a few pages in....I found a dated blog entry about ContentMenuHandlers and there being a bad entry. Though the blog entry solution was delete everything, except maybe the real obvious ones that won't be broken.

I didn't like that solution.

So searching on just "ContextMenuHandlers" I eventually found the above page. I opted for method 2, and tried to download ShellExView. Clicking on the redirection link in the article didn't work, so I used Google to find me a direct link (though I could've bypassed the redirect if I was more awake...they both found the same location).

Going through the non-Microsoft Context Menu handlers...I eventually found the offending handler. Scrolling further right, I found that ShellExView also tells me when the handler was installed (I had figured it would be something 'recent', but didn't know how to track down when a handler had been installed under 'method 1'.)

Turned out on January 6th, I installed "WhoLockMe". Something I installed, but have never used. There was a reason that day that I thought it would help me, but I probably ended up rebooting instead...and then forgot all about it.

Though it was during a period of time when I was having lots of other issues/conflicts with other installations....such as the scanner and TurboTax....

Pages: 1· 2

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
