On the way to advisor I picked up the new HP book on CD since the preordered books would not get to the house until after we'd left. Of course, this is for Coryn, my daughter who's traveling with me. Not for me, of course. No, surely not. Anyway....
I'm in the process of ripping the cd's to MP3 (for my personal use on an MP3 Player, not to distribute --sheesh) and I've discovered that the Dell Inspiron 8200 is no match for the chosen one. That, or the one who must not be named has placed a "cdromus interruptus" curse on the drive.
In truth, the 17 CD set cannot be ripped all at once without overheating the drive. Little by little, however, we're getting there. Chapters 1-28 are loaded on my cheap little Create Labs MuVo 128. Meanwhile, I think Coryn is 1/3 of the way through the book -- it was at Fry's for $13.
Meanwhile, the laptop is propped up on an overturned wooden tray to give it more ability to dissipate heat.
