Hey there. I’m Josh, a SydneyCanberra-based maker of Internets. I don’t update this very often.


Burning sound

Nero is a fantastic piece of software. It is sorely missed. RIP, bundled CD burner. (Ironically, the only burner I have that was ever ‘new’ in my possession was also the first to give up the ghost on CD burning). Bizarrely, it still works for DVDs just fine. Not a driver/OS-level thing. It’ll boot off a DVD, but not a CD. I think it’s a Sony, but that surely doesn’t mean much in this twisted world of re-/OEM-branded hardware. The thing that killed it was probably another Sony product that didn’t follow the real CD spec :P
