I have an MDisk writer and three Blu-ray version of MDisk media. I have had them for months but embarrassingly have not broken the shrink wrap. Anyone else have any first hand with this stuff?

HardWork(TM) will beat Talent
when Talent doesn't work hard.
>The number of principal investigators with a leading National Institutes of *Health* grant
When they figure out how to research global warming they will have funding running out their ears.
My daughter and I restored a 57 BelAir, her boyfriend drives a 67 Mustang, He almost has my 49 Willys running and together we will tackle the 84 Mustang. BUT: I would not try to fix the junk they sell in WalMart these days. The real problem is that crap from asia is not worth fixing.
... or someone's brother-in-law sells open office furniture.
Actually, Government Motors is a pension plan with a car making problem.
>I recall a Chinese proverb from some exotic cooking show. It was something like "if its feet are on the ground and its back to the sun, you can eat it"
In heaven you have American House, Japanese wife and Chinese food............
Don't forget Pacifica, and they are on the web and have a nice iOS app.
>Having a second vehicle in the house for long trips is nice too. But I've probably traded cars with my wife out of necessity 2 or 3 times in a year.
That is why I have a Volt. When I need to drive 600 miles I just go. During the week I make it to work and back with a little to spare on nuclear and dirty coal.
And the point about shifting and noise is *RIGHT ON* I had forgotton how nice classical music was but now that I can listen to it again it is really a great bonus.
Another plus is the Voilt makes the Prius look like a mud fence. I know because my son-in-law parked his Prius next to my Volt one day and made that comment.
Issue is really Regulators vs Lawyers.
I use LabVIEW every day. I started with Fortran on mainframes and mini, then basic on the C= 64, then basic on PCs and a stint with IDL on Solaris. Fifteen years ago I worked in a lab that had Labview 2 on Mac, and followed it on to the PC. I struggled with LabVIEW at first but when I discovered that I could highlight execution and figure out where the 'off by 1' logic was killing me I was hooked. When I learned how to scoop up a bunch of code and turn that into an icon with inputs and outputs I realized I could never go back. While I started off controlling instruments I now use it for everything including processing images or just simple filters.
All of your criticism have faded over time except the legitimate criticism that it is too expensive. That price makes the barrier to entry way too high and the number of users available to ask help from below critical mass. National Instruments gives the hardware drivers away free and charges for programming
>NASA: We are all praying for you. Better repent of your sins while you still have a time. It is God's hands now.
Pretty much sums it up for the crew of the Challenger.
"Because administrators by and large are politically conservative, and..."
Actually, the position of Administrator is a roach-motel for psychopaths. That is the number one reason for tenure.
Somebody's Law states that Management ends up with the Union it deserves.
And just how fast do they need to be able to download pr0n?
I have converted over to Neat. I have both their sheet feed scanner and also it imports from the Fujitsu. I hate that it is closed source trap but it works very well. I put the scanned documents in a plastic box, when it is full I put the end date on the box, put in some moth balls, tape it shut, and bury it in the back pasture (I suffer from the hoarding gene and this lets me cope.)
