The Master

I have an ostensible master ready to ship to Oasis, and have put a sizeable but not excessive payment on my Amex card. The sensation is surprisingly familiar from having been in at the birth of my kids. It's mostly fear.

I don't have any really good way of verifying my disks; the only program I know of on Linux is qpxtool, and it only seems to know about Plextor drives. If anyone knows of something better, or knows whether something free that runs on a Macbook Pro or a Windows XP machine will do the job, I'd appreciate a link. I do get a little feedback from cdrdao read-toc; found out that the Fuji inkjet-printable disks I have a spindle of have a lot more CRC errors than the Memorex disks.

I did determine that cdrdao wasn't writing the CD text correctly, so I ended up falling back on k3b, which just fscking works. If only it could take project info from a text file... Especially if it were the same toc file cdrdao uses. Grump. Also discovered that my drive won't go any slower than 8x. Should be OK, but...

Things are going to be a little tight tomorrow, since I'm flying up to Portland for OSCon around noon. I'm going to give the disk one more listen in the car on my way to and from work today, and live with it on headphones for a while.
