It's not that I don't enjoy
burning ISO files to disc, checking the file sizes to ensure perfect copies, sweating bullets while my equipment freezes on something like "FW21" for 35 minutes, frantically re-reading the instructions to see if it's safe to power-cycle, panicking on discovery that "OH CRAP the tray
