just as a 'try something' and see where problem may be, run;
  'dd if=/dev/sr0 of=bootsec-00.hex bs=512 count=1' [incrementing '-00']
on dvd's and run 'diff' to see what may have changed.

then a bios update may be in order.

strep is no pleasure. that being case, how about gin, vodka, or rum? <bwg>

i learned a pint of bourbon and a bunch of covers to sweat out a fever in late
1960 while station in denver. worked real great. tried on a cold, did not help,
but like i said, did not care.

ok. a cabinet maker / wood craftsman. most i have known have been like you.
always building something new and never time to clean floor. why waste time
cleaning up when it will just get covered again. :o)

you must be too busy working in shop to notice termites got to you home page.

i just built a 12' x 16' yard barn with loft. wish i had shot progress pics,
but i did shoot a bunch after. not on any home page yet, but do plan to.

code inspectors that came out for checks, told me it was well built and that
i did have a lot of 'over kill'. even said loft, with 2" x 10" x 12' on 12"
centers and double studs every 4', was strong enough to hold a car. problem
is i do not have a drive up ramp to check it out. [yet]

i am 68 and looking forward to 'senior moments'.

peace out.
