Four Candles [Wednesday 13th January 2010 at 8:18 pm]

Today's achievement was an impromptu Four Candles performance. I needed to burn a CD-R for something, so I asked one of the guys if he had any. Now, our software generates logfiles known as CDR files, so usually when someone at work is talking about CDRs they mean the files or the data within the files. Cue a couple of minutes of going back-and-forth "what sort of CDRs?" "A CD-R!" before another guy realised what was happening and expanded the abbreviation.

Today's discovery was that Nero doesn't like it if you rename a file that you're going to burn to disc. Of course, I found this out after it'd happily burnt a CD containing an empty 600MB zip file.
