DVD+RW Is My Savior
Well, I got the fucking thing to work. By using a DVD+RW disc instead of a DVD+R disc, I was able to create a disc that, with a little bit of patience, played in our DVD player in the living room. It doesn’t always want to play and when it does want to play it takes its sweet time recognizing the disc. But, that’s more than I ever could have hoped for last night when it seemed like everything to do with DVDs was going wrong.
Interestingly, when we were over at my parents’ house to celebrate Mom’s birthday with Mom, Dad, Grandma, Uncle Bill and Auntie Lil I tried out the DVD+Rs I burned yesterday and they worked beautifully. I would imagine that’s just because my parents’ player is that much newer.
Outside of my miraculous DVD accomplishment, I have very little else to report today. There are a ton of little bits of business I have to take care of with websites in regards to moving them and billing and such and that’s become a pain in the ass. I have a lot of work to do either when I stop typing this or first thing tomorrow morning.
That being said, I’m off for now.
