Frustrating. I had to setup a friends iPad to connect to a network, couldn't easily tell if I was typing upper-case or lower-case for each character. Took a couple of attempts before realising that the keys don't change case on the screen keyboard.

This is a great solution. I'd have to add that Plex supports sync into whatever cloud system you have as well. You select which content you want duplicated and it takes care of the rest.

I did the same as the original poster, converting lots of VHS and other dead media as best I could. Installing Sickbeard, NZBGet, Couch Potato, Headphones and a torrent server it's become quite a thing to behold. Using Plex with a couple of Chromecasts around the house really makes things easy. Chromecast and Plex get along with each other in a brilliant way. Best $35 ever spent. Even with the Netflix, HBO Go, iPlayer and a ton of other apps that just work.

They know that ALL their users are U2 fans. Every. Single. One.

And from this point on, if someone says they bought an iPhone you can say to their face that they are U2 fans, even if they deny it. Because Apple SAYS they are U2 fans, and to them that is the word of their god.

Exactly, there's no law to prohibit anyone from storing CC information, just a strong suggestion not to. Best practice preaches PCI/DSS compliance, but really it's the CC schemes that are broken. The schemes represent a compromise between convenience and 'security'. Here's an interesting Twitter stream: Need A Debit Card?, some even post photographs of both sides of the card and then wonder why their accounts are empty.

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.

Working...
