Re: Studios Releasing DVD But No Blu-ray?

This is exactly what happens with the hardcore pirate types.

Essentially they just "collect" software files for the sake of "collecting". They rarely ever use any of the pilfered/cracked files...

Re: Best Anti-Virus software?

Another way to minimize attack vectors, is turning off stuff that isn't used at all.

On my router, I turn off the wifi if nobody is using it. (Also set a hard password on the wifi accounts. The...

Re: Best Anti-Virus software?

Another way I look at binary files/archives, is using 7-zip to extract the contents of an *.exe file. (Everything is all done inside a sandbox, such as Sandboxie).

It turns out for many installers...

I took a closer look at what stinger does inside a sandbox (such as Sandboxie).

Even though stinger doesn't install formally, unfortunately it creates two new directories C:/Program Files/stinger...

Re: Best Anti-Virus software?

I got around this issue by running stinger inside a sandbox. When stinger is finished, I just deleted everything inside the sandbox which includes programs still running inside the sandbox.

Re: Best Anti-Virus software?

(This is a minor point).

I also avoid watching tv/movies on a web browser. So on Firefox, I don't allow any DRM-controlled content to be played (via windevine) in the tools->options menu.

Re: Best Anti-Virus software?

For a second opinion, I use McAffe Stinger.

Otherwise I'm constantly running the generic Windows Defender scans all the time on my own directories and some C:/Windows directories.

Re: Best Anti-Virus software?

When Firefox changed over to the quantum architecture for 57, I completely deleted Flash and the Sun/Oracle binary versions of Java. I've been flash-free ever since. Good riddence.

Re: How important to you is picture quality when watching a movie at home?

My perspective has evolved as I got older.

Re: Love the song but never saw the movie

My primary interest were the Bangles, Aerosmith, and Poison songs. (Dunno if they were ever released on any other album in those days).

Not so much the Slayer and Danzig ones.

Re: Studios Releasing DVD But No Blu-ray?

The latest casualty might be the scifi show The Killjoys.

The amazon listing for the final season appears to be dvd-only. The previous four seasons all had bluray releases.

Re: Studios Releasing DVD But No Blu-ray?

Re: Love the song but never saw the movie

Another similar case was "Who Made Who" by AC DC. It was only decades later when I finally saw the movie Maximum Overdrive and also thought it was crap.
