MessageWell Mark, I don't know about that concept - I've been in a 'nutrient
bath' for about 6 years and really missed the entire VHS to DVD changeover.
I think I'm going back in to wait out the "next big thing" in video
technology because the world is getting way to confusing - copyright,
technology, the matrix, Arnold S. governor of California, etc. Besides this
steak I'm eating isn't real and it tastes like chicken - or at least I think
it tastes like chicken, but maybe that's the only taste that was leftover
when they handed out tastes. Who is THEY anyway? Thanks for making me
think, because therefore I AM. Jim Scholtz. P.S. Actually, Jed made
great sense when he was discussing copyright and the obsolesence of
equipment. I don't think the writers of even the digital millenium
copyright act thought much about equipment obsolescene or 3rd party
ownership of databases.

Wait till they develop a "memory replicator", whereby you will stick your
finger in your puter, and you will THINK you saw the movie...and then
imagine the posts here, regarding saving your memory of a particular film,
and the copyright, thereof...

Just a thought...or was it a "matrix"...

Smiling bright in Pennsylvania,

"DVD will probably last only five more years and then the next
technology will have even more problems of conversion."

Dennis Doros
Milestone Film & Video

This inconspicuous line buried in Dennis' comments particularly deserves
some reflection. Many of us are in the process--and financial binds--of
converting over our educational collections of VHS to DVD as titles come out
on DVD. Is it truly only 5 more years of life for the much vaunted DVD? It
may take us 5 years to completely convert to DVD!
Can I just wait out DVD and skip to the next technology please?
Will that be dial-up?
In the meantime, we hang on to our 16mm films and projectors for the
big comeback. (Wish I'd kept those filmstrips.)

Thank you,
