Except that optical media isn't that durable or reliable. Every DVD or CD I've ever burned has become unreadable after a few years. The inks just don't hold the data for long.
HTL BD-R uses an inorganic phase-change alloy sputtered onto the disc surface. I have media files going back 4 years or so backed up to a bunch of Blu-rays at work, and they've mostly held up pretty well. I recently scanned all of them to see how they were holding up, and out of 300+ discs, 5 had some unreadable areas. They would've been recoverable because I augmented the images before burning with dvdisaster, but it was faster to just mark their contents as not backed up and let them get burned to a newer disc.
LTH BD-R, OTOH, uses the same organic dyes as CD-R and DVD-R, and is just as susceptible to bit rot (though in all honesty, I have plenty of DVD-Rs and CD-Rs kicking around that are still readable.)
Most BD-Rs on the market are HTL. They tend not to be marked as such, but LTH media are. Verbatim seems to be the most prominent of the LTH BD-R brands, though I think I've heard that Taiyo Yuden also produces LTH BD-R. dvdisaster identifies my backup set as a mix of Ritek, Philips, and CMC Magnetics media; they carried a variety of other brands on them (some well-known, some not so much).
If you're not set up for Blu-ray, M-Disc has applied its inorganic recording layer (they describe it as a "rock-like carbon compound") to DVD as well as Blu-ray. You need a drive that can burn them (not just any DVD burner will work), so if you're in the market for a compatible burner, you might as well get one that also handles Blu-ray. Wikipedia says the discs, once burned, are readable in any drive.
Leicester (spelling) = lester (phonetic)
That applies to all of the *cesters (there are more than a few...used to live not too far from Bicester, for instance), so at least they're consistent.
You want weird? Try to puzzle through how they say Derby should be pronounced "darby." I don't see an A anywhere in there.
Trillions of women in history have eagerly cared for babies who produced real excrement and it did not dissuade them. I'm pretty sure this campaign is a struggle against a seriously deep instinct, here.
The argument is that he had a presence in the US (server)
Ah, that's what I was missing, thanks.
The message has been sent -- you dip your toe in the torrent waters above a certain level and your life will be turned upside-down.
They are also close to sending the message that they intend to enforce their rules across the whole world. Which I guess accords with the rest of the US's imperialist message.
The argument is that he had a presence in the US (server) which violated "US's stupid copyright rules". If I was in another country and remote controlled a drone in to the US and blew something up I would be violating US law. Yeah, it's a horrible analogy but it's about as close as you can get where you can visualize the argument.
I don't think it's going to be an easy thing for the prosecutors to prove WHERE he violated US law but that is kind of not an issue any more. KAT is down and essentially gone. The message has been sent -- you dip your toe in the torrent waters above a certain level and your life will be turned upside-down.

I ended up donating the printer and the ink cartridges to a local charity, got a tax write-off for the donation, and bought an Epson printer. The Epson works great with refilled ink cartridges.
...until it clogs up and refuses to print until you waste half a set of cartridges on cleaning cycles. Even that might not get it running right.
My operating system is Cygwin. I think it's hosted on whatever Windows is current or whatever Windows was current when my machine was purchased.
Yeah, I know; the EU mandated universal charging standards and this is what we get. You would think as large as Apple is, they could have thrown the industry a bone and opened up the Lightning port as an open/free standard. But nooOOooooo.
This fall, my next laptop might very well be Windows. The fact the MBP lineup has been flat these past generations, combined with some really fucking stupid decisions (USB-C), and now this fiasco with the iPhone 7... yeah, Apple, your innovation has been sucking balls lately.
I refuse to support the N. Korean regime at any level. Any growth in their GDP will be redirected to their military. Purchasing the Manbang it tantamount to putting a down payment on a noose; one thread at a time.
They had their chance, and blew it. Not USB-C is the defecto standard mandated be the EU for universal charging. Why else do you think the MacBooks are going this route? Lowest common denominator. And yes, Lightning is a superior connector.
Any given program will expand to fill available memory.
