I finally got around to taking apart our radio in our car that has had a CD stuck in it since we purchased the car.  The dashboard came out unexpectedly easily, so I should have done it a long time ago -- I had been intimidated by not seeing any obvious screws, but when I yanked on it, everything just popped off. 

 

Taking apart the radio took some more work, but eventually the front panel came off (the volume knob had been semi-glued on by the last guy to work on it (in 1995, a mechanic in Orlando).

 

The CD came out easily enough, and I discovered that I had forgotten that Jonathan had stuffed a bunch of coins in the CD slot a year or so ago.  We had gotten some of them out, but there was still $.30 left in it.

 

I plugged the radio back in and the cd player accepts the cd (barely) and refuses to spin up or eject it.

 

So, we will probably be getting a new radio, maybe this one, since a friend just bought one, and he has liked it so far. He said to wait a little bit and see if he continues to like it - and I'll probably go check it out as well.

Hrm. Found out more about the radio. It has a random function, though it always goes in the same order, and also doesn't remember where it was, so you always hear the same songs over and over if you go on short trips.

Hrm again. Lots of people say that it remembers which song, just not where you are in the track. That isn't so bad, and probably perfectly tolerable for us.

Michael - did you mistype the AuthImage code? Usually real comments don't get caught by the spam filter, so it is a little hard to tell what happened.

My guess is that the AuthImage code was incorrect, so it marked it as spam, and then since you got it wrong, the badbehavior plugin marked you as a likely candidate for spam, or perhaps the bayesian filter, not sure.
