On an unrelated note...

You know what bugs me? When I try to take the liner notes out of a CD jewel case, and the little plastic bumps that are supposed to keep the paper from falling out on its own work too well, thus holding the pages hostage until I can dig them out with my nonexistent fingernails or the end of a paper clip. I've actually broken jewel cases just trying to extract the notes from the front cover.

glad to see I'm not the only one that feels that way.

I hate that, too.

I developed a marginally successful technique of pressing on the liner notes and sliding them towards the hinge of the jewel case. Most of the time, they curl just enough to pop up over the edge of the case, making them accessible.

Like I said, I've broken several cases already....
