Yes, you'll be fine.  This is the buffer underrun protection I was
talking about in my other post in this thread.  This is supported by
cdrecord and works very well.  Use the option 'driveropts=burnproof'
with cdrecord and you should be fine, no matter how loaded the box gets.

int main() {
    puts("Reader! Think not that \n"
         "technical information \n"
         "ought not be called speech;");
    return 0;
