BYO DVD


Burn your own DVD, that is… Bought a DVD writer (Teac DV-W50D-PUK) on Saturday. External one, connects through USB 2.0 to my various notebooks 🙂 At EUR 229,- they become affordable now.
These days, with HDs in the 60GB+ range, you cannot create sensible backups on CDs – they now suffer the same fate that floppy disks did a couple of years ago. So 4.7GB do much better than 700MB, though only by an order of magnitude.
Another nice side effect: I can author and write my personal videos to DVD instead of having to keep the DV cassettes around.
