in which I show need of a multimedia clue

I just found out today that copying a DVD is apparently quite different from copying a CD. Go figure. That's what I get for not paying attention, or thinking beyond the hopelessly optimistic "we've shipped out 50 copies, anyone who wants additional copies will have to make their own from one of those" notation on the website of the folks who produced the item in question. [Training material for work, not anything exciting.]

I confess to being woefully behind the times ala anything much having to do with sound and vision - although there is at least a remedy on the horizon. My cunning plan is to pick up a PowerBook sometime after the 24th, and I figure on springing for the extra cash the DVDW drive entails. Whee-la, learning by doing is the bestest part of this stuff...

My first thought was 'ye gods, first cars and now sports. tell me again why I thought this would be an interesting meme to get involved with?' But I do fairly firmly believe that interesting art can come out of bizarre and dull-seeming places - not that I've managed to read that novel that never uses the letter "e" - so in that vein I will answer these dull seeming questions with as much goodwill as I can muster.
