Good News. The Verbatim DVD+R DL's work great. :yes:

I have burned 3, one for each of the first 3 seasons of "Strange Days at Blake Holsey High". And, they are all playable. I didn't actually watch all the episodes...I only looked to see that I could load the menus and then play an episode near the beginning and near the end.

I just used a regular DVD-R for burning Conclusions

Software Wish: "I'm Busy"

I was just thinking now there ought to be a program (for Windows) called "I'm Busy" (or "IM Busy", though it should work more than just IM programs).

I just had another phone interview, which I thought was very challenging and interesting...hopefully I'll get at least some response from it. Anyways, each time that I have one of these calls, I've gone to various programs in my system tray to quiet things down.

Namely, I set busy (or on the phone) status on each of the IM programs on my computer (ICQ, AIM, Y!, GTalk, MSN....I guess that's everything, at work I used to have Rhymbox....because Livelink IM uses Jabber, but requires a client that does SSL...there have been others, but lack of buddies on those has had me discontinue them inorder to keep sufficient real estate on my screen open &#59;) )

But, there's other things I want to toggle when setting 'on the phone' state. Namely, change ANT4MC to offline status (so I won't have the computer announcing the arrival of new mail to the dozens of accounts I have) and change BOINC Manager to 'suspend'. Because when BOINC is running, my computer sounds like a jet engine.....

Anybody now if such a program exists?

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.
