In the comments section of the last comic I said the streak of well received strips may end with the next one. Well the next one is here and don’t say I didn’t warn ya.


As always, any donations would be very welcome. Thanks to Joshua, Arjen and James for helping out last time.

This week there will be another new strip and the second half of my editorial.

On a personal note, yesterday I was copying files backed up to cds to my HD so I could then burn them to DVD’s and save space in my cd/dvd rack. It was going fine until this one cd that really struggled to copy the file across. Eventually I got an error and I just tried another cd.

After I had enough on my HD to fill a DVD I tried to burn but something was different. The buffer level did not stay constant around 100%. It fluctuated wildly from around 10% to 90%. Because of this the burn took around 5 times longer than it normally would have. Since then I’ve tried different dvds and reboots and the problem persists.

I googled it and some possible solutions included making sure DMA is turned on for the drive and defragging the HD which is housing the files. I did both and the problem is still there.

So, anyone got some possible answers? Just send me a line.
