Sometimes a CD will say it's 45seconds away from the end of the track,
and then suddenly the track is over, unexpectedly.
As a DJ, this results in dead air.
Certainly, part of the problem rests with the person who mastered the CD,
including the incorrect info.
But as my co-DJ John Clements pointed out, the real blame rests with
the people who developed the CD encoding format:
it shouldn't even be possible to encode a CD with
such incorrect information!
Netscape -- the unix platform begs for a "clear" button:
all the time i'm cutting/pasting URLs, and i have to paste
from the other window, then go click in the url box,
transfer to the keyboard to ctrl-K(ill) the old url,
then back to the mouse to click the paste button.
A button "clear URL" would solve the problem easily!
