Seems things are fixed with the server. I was able to finally delete the old files and use the normal directory. Not sure if they are done with the upgrades but things worked fine on my side of it. It looks like sonys at several stores is about it. There is some verbatim light scribe which is on sale but still kind of expensive(of course it is always expensive).
Also, one thing that I noticed, 74gig sata raptors on sale at bestbuy for 160$ upfront (same price as newegg) with 30$ erebate so 130$ final price. I havent kept up on what raptors are selling for but it seemed to be a good price.
So anyway, here they are.
Almost forgot, I got ads from all the usual stores this week.
