Sure it could make ripping streams harder but I never understood how DRM could prevent you from reproducing a stream since you have to be able to see and hear it ultimately. Replace ears and eyes with sensors or tap into display and speakers and there you go.

good choice!

this works fine for me with something like: /usr/bin/ionice -c 2 -n 7 /usr/bin/nice -n 5 \ /bin/su qemu -c "qemu-system-x86_64 -m 2048 \
-smp 1 -net nic,model=virtio,macaddr=$MAC_WIN2012 \
-drive file=win2012.0.0.img,index=0,media=disk,cache=none \

-display vnc=${VNC_WIN2012} -daemonize \
-pidfile /var/run/qemu/ -enable-kvm \
-cdrom /home/win/nobk/windowsDVD/dummy.iso \
-boot menu=on,splash-time=15000"

Comment Re:More Useful Daylight in Summer (Score 1) 228

I like daylight saving for this exact reason - more daylight after work (and no, I can't just change my work schedule to give myself more daylight time in the evenings).

I'd be fine with just settling on daylight savings time year round... no more "spring forward, fall back". I live in Washington state, so during winter it's going to be dark when I'm going to work and when I'm coming home anyway...

But... but... think of the children! They usually get young kids home from school before dark...

My mother tells me that when black and white TV first came out, some people used to dress all nice and clean to watch TV, like if they were going to a wedding or something. Apparently, they weren't sure if the guy in the TV could see them and they wouldn't trust you if you told them he couldn't.

Man, those people were visionaries!
