So even if no one in my community buys DVD any time soon, I've started
ordering them, primarily when I cannot buy a feature film letterboxed on
laserdisc or VHS. Like Rick, our film studies faculty hate VHS, but want
letterboxed anything over a specific format. We've just received a
Parents Fund grant to buy four computers with DVD-ROM drives, so we will
be experimenting with DVD-ROM too. Basically, I think we have an
responsibility to experiment with and to learn about new technologies. I
love my laserdiscs, but their demise seems to be assured. And DVDs will
be easier to store. Now I'm ready for DVD to knock out VHS too...
