"If your eye falls on a deal please pick it up...."

I admit to not having an "Oncle Max," with or without a "gless eye." But that's OK; it's not clear how many people will recognize the H*Y*M*A*N K*A*P*L*A*N reference anyway.

Anyway... Staples has a heck of a deal on a dual-layer DVD burner today and tomorrow; $40 after a $30 rebate. Staples, unlike other businesses, lets one submit one's rebate (in most cases, at least) online. None of the insane rigamarole with writing on tiny curly strips of cash register paper. We headed over and got the last drive. (They had a couple of external ones for a bit more money, but I don't want to mess with those.) It went in like a charm (OK, irpooh had to connect the audio cable, which was in a rather cramped space), and works fine. Yay.

Now to do the things I've been putting off... sigh.
