I set up dual booting on my new machine: Windows 2000 and Linux. I also figured out the problem with the CD writer. It doesn't work at higher speeds (the 16X), but works fine at 8X. So now I can burn CDs, multi-session and all. Just to try it I made a CD of all my Larry Coryell CDs.

So now, I just have to move the files from the old machine to the new one, create accounts for everyone and we can do the switch.

Had a weird morning today. On the drive to work I hit a deer. It's still dark at 6:00AM, and I saw the deer standing on the side of the road and just as I came near it it darted right in front of the car. Fortunately I wasn't going fast, I slammed on my breaks and stopped, but I hit the poor thing just enough to knock it over. The deer got up and ran away and there were no dents on my car.
