Re: [JBC] live CDRs, a protocol proposal
Date: Tue 07 May 2002 - 08:05:44 PDT
I have nil experience with trading trees and no JBC material that hasn't already been passed around on this list like the village bike. However, I volunteer the services of my creaky Imation CD burner. My rules are:
-"Pat says it's OK to trade this stuff" ONLY.
-I check each CD I burn to make the recording went OK. It may take an extra
day or two for turnaround.
-I don't have a printer, so I won't include a cover.
If you can live with this, then I'll be happy to participate.
