Dual Layer DVD+-RW out this summer

Recommended Posts

yep, dual layer finally. this means 8.5GB per disc. so far it looks expensive and slow, but give it 6months and it will be fast and cheap i am sure.


for those who create dvd's tis will change the whole process of how we work. of course, this also means that transcoding a rented movie will be no longer necessary (if you do that i guess)


i wouldnt buy the first round of burners.media though...


dual layer burner soon

It also means we're going to need new drives to use that media. Oh well. My 4X DVD-/+RW is doing just fine, and I won't be replacing it any time soon. Okay, maybe with an 8X if the prices keep dropping.


My 'puter, OTOH, is due for an update - just ordered a new Athlon 64 and a new mobo - I figure that's more important than a faster DVD drive at the moment. But isn't it amazing how they keep selling us new stuff? Faster, better, cheaper - just keep on buyin'. ;)


Thanks for the link.

i was doing really well, and then something changed and i got a lot worse. i dont know what. i have a hard time walking right now, and stairs are extremely difficult.


i went back to the doc, and he gave me something called SINGULAIR and i have taken it for three days now. it makes me weeze and cough like you wouldnt beleive, but its helping. every time i cough - stuff comes up easy enough and i get better.


i think my lungs are cleaning themselves out from smoking. its icky, sticky brown stuff but its coming out at a high rate finally.


its weird, because for a while my lungs hurt like hell - i assume from parts of my lungs getting oxygen that hadnt seen oxygen for years and years. it was extremely painful. that went away, and i felt really good, almost good enough to do stuff. then saturday my world came crashing down when i walked up the stairs and got out of breath completely. sunday was worse, i had a hard time eating because i couldnt breath through my nose good enough to chew my food.


but i am on the UP again, and this time its different because i am getting rid of stuff. this is new. i havent been able to cough it up until now, and it started wednesday when i took the SINGULAIR.


maybe this will be the thing that makes me get better fianlly. i sure want to be better again, and i can tell my body is trying its hardest to do that; i can tell it hasnt given up although for a while i know it did. in all seriousness without modern medicine i think i may have died from this.
