So you are using the killer Amarok music application under Ubuntu, but when you try  to “Burn this Album”, the menu item is grayed out and otherwise disabled.

Personally I abhor receiving Forwards in my inbox. Not the important ones from my boss or ones that actually are useful in dealing with an issue. I am talking about the stupid jokes, “funny” pictures, chain emails, etc…

Along with being a major computer geek I am also a music geek. I am also a guitarist. I have been playing guitar for around 6 years and I have some cool equipment but nothing like this. From a guitarist point of view I think this is an incredible piece of art, however I would not want to play this on stage!
