So, a couple weeks ago I go to burn a copy of Songs For The Deaf (awesome CD ) using my normal Linux burning software (gnome-toaster, with cdrdao as a backend). And this particular time it failed (made a nice pink coaster). So, today I figure it's time to try it again, and I figure maybe different software will help. So I download Nero on NT. First it says "your demo copy has expired". I JUST DOWNLOADED IT YOU FUCKING THING HOW CAN IT HAVE EXPIRED??!! So, I get a key for it (by legal means. of course.) and go to burn my CD. My god, this thing is fucking impossible to use: a) It couldn't find my CD in cddb, stupid thing I know it's there, it found it on Linux. b) It's entirely unclear how to burn DAO with CD-Text while just copying the CD. So, finally I get a CD together (after entering the track names manually ). And I click "burn". Brings up the little dialog... and.... "You have selected disc-at-once mode. Your CD reader isn't fast enough to do this on-the-fly. Would you like to switch to track-at-once mode?" YES IT IS FAST ENOUGH, I HAVE DONE DAO ON THE FLY NUMEROUS TIMES. Yea, that's when I gave up, swore, rebooted into Linux, and in the time it took me to DOWNLOAD Nero, nevermind fighting with it, I'd put the CD layout together in gnome-toaster and in half the time I spent fighting with Nero it was burned. Cliffs notes: Nero + Windows == angry vengeful Penguin Man. I HATE WINDOWS AND WINDOWS SOFTWARE.
