I needed some more basic CDs for burning and found these Verbatim CD-Rs which are very reliable and burn at their rated speed of 52x, unlike many other brand-name CDs which we shan't mention. 🙂
About $20 for a spindle of 100 CDs. (Note that these are your standard shiny surface for labeling with a Sharpie or similar pen, not for printing from a custom CD printer, if you have one of those; most folks don't.)

If you DO have an inkjet printer capable of printing on CDs, you'll want to get these instead:
Verbatim 97019 700 MB 52X 80 MIN DataLifePlus White Inkjet Hub Printable CD-R, 100-Disc Spindle Tape Wrap (White)
I've been going through it. I'm planning on doing the entire 16 hour transformation about 10 days from today and I can't wait.
There are some podcasts that really make it even easier to wrap your head around how this works and what you can expect—also hints and examples. Merlin Mann’s 43 Folders also covers Getting Things Done and just about anything else you might want to know about organizing and productivity.
I'm really looking forward to a huge change in the way my life works by using this.
If you find yourself frustrated by the overwhelming list of stuff you have to and want to do, you should definitely give this book a thorough review.

OK, back when I bought my digicam I researched it all for 3 months and finally chose the Canon Powershot 7 MP (megapixel) version. Then they came out with a 10 MP version and I was bummed, but not too much since it was a lot more expensive.
Well now the IMPROVED 10 Mpixel version of the old 10 Mpixel version is out and it's cheaper than my original 7 MPixel Powershot! Sheesh. At least you can take advantage of it and I can live vicariously knowing you got the best deal I've ever seen on the Canon digicams. Get it, you'll love it.

If you haven't started using this for reviewing your web site's stats (are you crazy?!?), you should. Immediately. It used to be called Urchin and cost a small fortune. Now it's free so there's no excuse to be suffering along with that old AWstats anymore.
After some digging, I found a decent UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) that should keep your computer, cable modem, router, monitor and maybe a USB hub up and running during the next power outage for at least 30 minutes. It has a max battery run time of 170 minutes under minumum load and has gotten very good reviews at Newegg.
Yup, it supports Windows, Mac and Linux.
