OK. I have to share this.

The midst of a nightmare project - 170 hours in 10 days to get the docs
finished - for a CD writer project. About midnight, after writing for about
16 hours, I actually wrote the following sentence and the manual shipped
with it intact - no time for an edit review. The point was that when the CD
write process started, leave the CD writer alone until it is finished.

"Premature ejection can result in a blown disc."

A personal best.
