Hi all:

Mid-June I sent people a tar.gz with the Source Code for Spiegel, my simple 
CD/DVD Iso Image Burner. This got classed as SPAM, and lost its tar.gz. But 
you can see the Source Code on the Internet now, if you're curious. Just 
google for "freebsd spiegel".

I sent the bare Source Code to "freebsd-chat" and "freebsd-hackers" even 
though it's a Linux Utility, because FreeBSD is changing its ATAPI Interface. 
As a result my email automatically got converted into Web Pages. I can't tell 
how many people have tried running Spiegel, but I haven't had any complaints 
so far.

So if you have problems with your version of "cdrecord" (and I know somebody 
who does) or if you just want to discover the mechanics of CD/DVD Burning, 
Spiegel could interest you. Just save the Web Page as a Text File and cut 
along the dotted lines. The Code is for 32-Bit Linux PC.
