My memory is as bad as yours I don't doubt. Just get your command set up
right once and bury it in a tiny script. The CLI for growisofs is trivial
for most stuff. K3b adds nothing but complication and delay. At CLI you get
to decide the options to use, not some third party. I am not saying that K3b
is a bad program, far from from it. It's predecessors may have been POS but
K3b is merely unnecessary.

The other nice thing about a gui interface like K3B is that I can drag and

I do it the easy way, I burn out of 1 directory.
