I've spent much of the evening fixing a CD-R that had been burned TAO (2 second gaps inserted between each track -- not good on a live concert recording).

The building had been evacuated once during the day, and the fire department had been out four times. Even 30 floors up, I found the smell very strong and the air quality poor. Why they couldn't have set up proper ventilation, I don't know.
