Well, things certainlly went smother this week than last week (couldn’t be all good though, my scanner and scan software froze up when I was almost done and I though I lost all the scans for a second, but I didn’t, lol). Sorry for being so late again, had to work the morning shift and had to work late due to inventory.
About the best I saw for media was maxell at office depot, verbatium dual layer at best buy again, and nextech at circuit city (-r are mcc if you know what to look for). I only glanced at them so I could have easilly miss something though. Circuit city has a mad dog burner that claims 8x dual layer for 50$ after rebate (arn’t these the new nec’s?). Again, I didn’t really have a chance to see what other burners were on sale. I really don’t get much time to look at the ads while I scan them. Anyway, here they are.
Almost forgot, no office max ad but rather a brown paper grocery bag with 15% off whatever you can fit in it for office max. I scanned the part of it that gave exclusions. Obviously you will have to get a newspaper to get the bag (or maybe they have them in store, I don’t know). I checked there web site (normally they post their ad early on saturday for the next week) and the only ad was this last weeks, so I’m guessing no ad, just the 15% bag.
By the way, I have been scanning at 150 dpi and resizing to 100 dpi since christmas (including this time). I used to scan at 250 dpi and resize to 100 dpi. Are the ads (including item numbers) readable and clear enough? I could change back to 250 dpi if anyone thinks it makes a diffrence?
One more side note, if anyone sees any divx/xvid standalone players on sale that are good, I would like to know. I got one of the compusa branded ones but it won’t play enough of my files so it may go back. When the philips first came out I heard some bad things but now hear some good things, and thats what seems to get advertised. Any opinions?
