  3. Dear....Its really interesting...u hav inspired me to make a list of my own ...so u u have achieved one more point (101, inspire some one to make 101 list) but let us c how much time i need to make a list...

  4. Regarding your entry 70, my advise would be to get a hard drive as early as possible and transfer them at the earliest. I have around 400-500 DVDs and quite a few of the older ones which i burned arnd 4-5 yrs back are not reading. Some of them contain irreplaceable data.. so bought a 1TB HDD and thts my archive now..

  5. @ Aravind..

  6. Glad to see there are no reds yet... :-D all the best!!!!
