Computer stuff

I’ve burnt some more CDs of annotated photographs and MP3s… and also my first coaster after over 50 successful burns. I also installed the developer tools and built the latest version of the LAME MP3 encoder.

I thought Mac OS X had finally crashed earlier on, when all my Internet applications locked up… but it turned out the router had crashed. Power cycled it and everything worked again.

We need a new printer. Currently I print by producing a PDF and sending it over the network to sara, whose Mac is attached to the printer. This works, but it’s a pain. The new printer has to be shareable between OS X, OS 9 and (ideally) Windows too. I’m not sure about color inkjet vs monochrome laser. (A color laser is way too expensive.)
