Yes. Turn off the computer. Turn the computer back on and hold down the mouse key. That should eject it.

Oh yeah. Everything is fine. I didn’t realize you guys were out of the country. Hope you’re having a great time over there!
I just wanted to inform you about my findings when I stopped by your house the other day.
I’m pretty sure there’s nothing wrong with the picture formatting on either the TV or the Blu-Ray player. One of the Blu-Ray movies was actually Standard (4:3 aspect ratio). I have never seen a Blu-Ray movie in this ratio, but apparently they exist. because the TV is 16:9 aspect ratio, the 4:3 aspect ratio is displayed in the center and the left and right sides are left black. This is actually a technique called letterbox – whereby one ratio is ‘formatted’ to fit another screen size. The TV *can* fill the screen, but then image cropping and stretching would be required, distorting the original image on the disc.
The other movie, District 9 I believe it was, was actually formatted Panavision Widescreen. This is a common format especially for movie theatres. But since the ratio is actually wider than the TV (2.35:1), we now get a letterbox effect on the top and bottom instead of the left and right. This is normal and the expected behavior.
Does that make sense?

Hi Lisa -
No, I haven’t heard of them. Their site seems suspicious though. I also wonder what kind of selection they have. The movies they are showcasing are hardly even mainstream.
Netflix is definitely the most popular and offers the greatest selection of movies for instant streaming.

Hi Jay -
We use them here & there and have had very good luck with them.
They tend to be a bit cheaper than some of the other NAS devices out there.
We use them often to replace tape backup drives, but choosing the right software for backups is critical as some products, even BackupExec, don’t handle re-connecting and re-mounting the backup volumes well. We also use them on occasion for cheap network storage or to put off upgrading a server’s storage capacity. They certainly aren’t as flexible configuration-wise as a Windows of Mac OS Server, but in the right environment they work well enough. The ‘Pro’ series can connect to an existing AD Domain. Managing shares & permissions is a bit clumsy, at least compared to doing the same within Windows Server.
We have moved many of our clients to an off-site internet-based backup solution hosted by Brainspiral in our Bennington and Lanesboro data centers. Many of our clients don’t have much data, so it’s faster, safer & cheaper than trying to maintain something in-house.
Hope that information helps.

1.) Turn the printer off. 2.) Hold the ‘go’ button while turning the printer on. All panel lights should be on. 3.) Release the ‘go’ button once all lights are off. 4. )Press the ‘go’ button 2 times. 5.) Pause. 6.) Press the ‘go’ button 5 times. 7.) The toner light should be off. 8.) The paper light should be on. 9.) Close cover. The ready light should be the only light on. Once all steps are successfully completed your “low toner” light should be fixed.

Hi Lynne -
While AVG is a good product, we have found that the newer versions are bulky and clumsy and are encouraging everyone to remove AVG and install Microsoft Security Essentials.
Security Essentials is a free anti-virus, anti-spyware security solution developed by Microsoft specifically for Microsoft products.
It’s available here:
Your new PC probably already has it on there – we never deploy a machine without some sort of security software. Or at least try not to forget!
Glad you’re liking the new Lenovo. We like them, too.
