Re: error correction
When I worked at Apple Computer we actually tested microwaved CDs and
CDRs in Apple's CD-ROM drives. They didn't work. I believe that was
after a beer bust.
Also, I read somewhere about a guy who disables the muting function of
his CD players so he can listen to the sound while the laser skips
tracks. He said it was beautiful but I have my doubts.
