After three years of faithful service, my beloved Pioneer DVR-109 internal optical drive has failed. I replaced it today with a brand new, robust DVR-115 (which has already proven itself faster and more reliable than its predecessor—it earned those additional six increments in its name!).

He worked on the Auburn, Cord and Duesenberg lines, developing the body surfaces for the entire Duesenberg J line (driven by Gary Cooper and others of that ilk), [...]
