A rantbox

Quiet music listening

When playing a newly-bought audio cd (bought directly from the artist, Jennifer Grassman - movieclip of one of her beautiful songs), I was annoyed at the amount of noise my DVD-drive made. Turned out the solution was easy:

eject -x N /dev/cdrom

where N should be replaced with a speed number, like 2 or 4. I entered 4 while playing and it spun down nicely, while continuing playing just fine. Serenity :)
