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.
