My wife asked for some CD's of some 1980's country hits for Christmas. Since we don't have a whole lot of money but I have quite a few blank CDs on hand, I decided I'd go to YouTube and, with a little help from Wikipedia, get the scoop on the top country hits of each year of the 1980's, and download those on YouTube that are of studio-recording quality and in stereo and convert them to WAVs to burn to CDs.
I'm burning them right now while she's still asleep (I've also employed a second virtual desktop, which I almost never use, to put GnomeBaker on to burn the CDs in case she wakes up and comes in here LOL), but I noticed something when I went to add the files to be burned in GnomeBaker: While downloading, converting, compiling, and deciding what order to put the songs in, I paid close attention to not go over 700 MB when downloading and converting everything. It's my understanding that 700 MB = about 80 minutes worth of music in WAV format, right? Well, according to GnomeBaker, there are only about 65-70 minutes worth of music on each CD I've burned so far.
It's not THAT big a deal, but I feel a little gypped here in that I could've put about 3 or 4 more songs on each CD (one for each year of the 80's). It's kinda like Thunar lied to me, and I don't like being lied to like that. Anyone know what's up with that?
