Subject:[hardware,shopping,poll] DVD/RW PotD
Time:10:21 am

Dear friends! I'm looking for a DVD+RW/DVD-RW IDE drive with dual-layer support. Please help me make a choice. Note that I will not use it for audio CD ripping (I heard NEC had some issues with CDDA reading stability), only as a backup and DVD copying device.

Poll #459048 DVD/RW

Which one to pick?

NEC ND-3520A
7(70.0%)
Toshiba SD-R5372
0(0.0%)
Other
3(30.0%)

If other than which exactly?

Subject:[management,reading,quote,link] Why Crunch Mode Doesn't Work: 6 Lessons
Time:11:26 am

Why Crunch Mode Doesn't Work: 6 Lessons. There's a bottom-line reason most industries gave up crunch mode over 75 years ago: It's the single most expensive way there is to get the work done. (Via one of Johanna Rothman's blogs.)

I like this most: "In the short term, working over 21 hours continuously is equivalent to being legally drunk."

Is It Worth Reading Employee's Email? Especially recommended for R-t managers.

If you're a manager and you want to know what your employees are up to, I suggest reading email as a last resort. Of course, if you're concerned that someone is stealing, or using your company to do something illegal or unethical, reading email may be your only trail. But if you want to check on what an employee thinks or how their work is proceeding, talk to the employee.

Momus is being deep. I think I like this rant, despite all the gender-related shit.

BOOCH: That's one hell of a name you got there, sister.

RATIONAL ROSE: Thank you. And what is your name?

BOOCH: Booch.

RATIONAL ROSE: Booch. What does it mean?

BOOCH: I'm an American, honey, our names don't mean shit.
