    Hiya,

    From the The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy, Third Edition. 2002
    To do something trivial and irresponsible in the midst of an emergency; legend has it that while a fire destroyed the city of Rome, the emperor Nero played his violin, thus revealing his total lack of concern for his people and his empire.

    Nero (the program), otherwise known as NERO BURNING ROM, is a CD/DVD Burning program, named as a play on words:
    NERO fiddled while ROMe BURNED ;)

    Now the really funny thing is:
    While you are burning a disk, you really SHOULD NOT FIDDLE with your system as that increases the chances of a faulty burn: FIDDLING is IRRESPONSIBLE while BURNING ROMs with NERO !LOL!

    Hope this helps ;)

    ok ok i've read the link to the other post and i now come to conclusion that drchips can have any title his little heart desires.

    the highest rank we have over here is king!!!!!!, but hey what the hell drchips, if you wanna be the first president of the uk then we'll have to arrange it!!!!
