This, today, totally pissed me off.
I wanted to burn a file on a cd, so in nautilus I typed burn:// added the files, pressed burned.
This nicely stopped with the message:
Session error : The file is not stored locally (brasero_burn_record burn.c:2650)
Well I got a few things to say about that.
- ARE YOU F******* CRAZY. I KNOW THAT.
- ARE YOU F******* CRAZY.
- That file is on a nfs share, located on a raid system connected via a gigabit network. I get 60-70 mbyte/sec from that share. MORE then sufficient to burn a cd, or a dvd..
- Ok Ok, I can see that for some users you need to warn them.. but just to quit with an error is madness itself. ATLEAST ALLOW ME TO FRIGGING CONTINUE.
I always stayed out of the discussion that GNOME would assume users more stupid with every release, but hitting this, I can only agree.
There is also no entry in regedit gconf-editor to disable this idiotic behauviour.
