Would you like some Toast?

The other day I used Toast to burn some CDs. It took 15 minutes to burn each disk, but I was using a SCSI burner and my external Jaz drive case, so it was reasonable. I used version 4 and I assume that Toast 6 would also work well. If you need Mac CD burning software, I had a good experience with it and recommend it.

Winter has returned now. With Friday's snow I can now say that winter returned. Also, I have returned. From where I don't know, but now I'm back, back in a blogging mood.

Three Things

1) I upgraded Elixer to OS 9.2.1. I was hoping for speed increases, but so far I have not noticed any. I also haven't noticed slow downs, which makes it a win-win.

2) Jake got me a Apple TV/Video System. It has a TV tuner, s-video, and composite (RCA) inputs. So I can watch TV on my computer, record TV to watch later, and it came with video editer. It's really cool and so far have work with out problems.

3) Four days 'til Steve Job's keynote. O, the insanity!
