How badly does web surfing affect burn quality?

I have seen bad/errant burns attributed to surfing the web whilst burning.

Bad news since I do exactly that.

What say you?

Well I guess it really depends on what you are doing on the internet. It shouldn’t do that much harm if you stay on one page or slowly surfed, but downloading and long pages might have an effect on it.

I surf like a madman. Super fast DSL is way too slow for me.

It depends on lots of factors.

If you system is fast enough to deliver the data to the writer smoothly and handle surfing at the same time, there should be no ill effects that result from surfing.

I suggest you watch the buffer level on your writer while you do different activities during a burn and see what causes it to get unstable.
