Ranty Time!

ugh.

My CD burner is no longer working -- it consistently writes frisbees that fail checksums starting about 2/3rds of the way through the disc. (But at least the DVD-burner part of the drive still works fine.)

So now I have to call Dell and get them to replace it. Grrrr.

Edit: My suspicion about the lens being fucked up was correct. Compressed air wins. Also, Dell wins for providing useful information in their automated email responses for once -- I didn't think compressed air and lenses mixed, but apparently I was wrong. >.>

It's managed to burn a CD correctly. Let's see if it can do it again.

Edit Again: No, it couldn't. Time to poke Dell again.
