I was looking for some downtime tonight, but there really isn’t much on television. I wasn’t really in the mood for any of the DVDs that are kicking around. I don’t have anything of note in VHS format in front of me.
What did I do?
I pointed my browser to my favorite repository of TV show torrent files and started downloading a CSI episode from the first season. Then the phone rang. About five minutes or so later I wandered back to the computer. The file was 76% done with just a few minutes later. In the amount of time that it took me to write this, the file has finished downloading. Now I’m burning it to a VCD so that I can pop it in the DVD player.
I can guarantee you that a year or two ago the bandwidth and the tech (Thanks, Bram!) would not have been ready for something like this. Now it Just Works. Pardon me while I hop offline for a bit and watch my tv show (01×07 for those keeping score).
