How to Select the Right Duplication System
Or, how I became a record producer

What's the right duplication system for you? It depends on your requirements. Here are some guidelines for selecting the right CD or DVD duplication system. First you'll have to answer some basic questions like: How much do you want to spend? How many discs do you want to make at a time? Do you want to label the discs manually or automatically? How much manual effort do you want to expend in making the discs?
What's Better Motorized Pan/Tilt/Zoom or Digital Pan/Tilt/Zoom?
How to pick the right system

This article compares mechanical Pan/Tilt/Zoom camera systems to Digital P/T/Z systems. Motorized mechanical systems move the camera and adjust the lens while digital systems move an electronic window around a high resolution video image. Motorized P/T/Z cameras have been around for many years. They provide a wide range of pan, tilt and zoom so you can view a very large area. The cameras are connected through a Camera server such as the Axis2400. A digital P/T/Z camera, such as the IQeye3 camera system, connects directly to the network and is controlled by a web browser. The best system for you depends on your application.

It's always better to laugh

"On two occasions, I have been asked [by members of Parliament], 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able to rightly apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question."
-- Charles Babbage (1791-1871)

I've done my time in tech support and have managed to live through some very weird calls, but this one was the best. An older lady bought a brand new desktop system with all the extras and had been using it for about a month when she got an error about an "illegal function." She took apart the whole system down to the hard drive and hid it in different parts of her house, called us, and wanted to know how much longer she had until the police were going to come get her. Needless to say, we spent a lot of time on the phone putting the system back together.
