Comment Re:Why would I want low quality video? (Score 1) 152

I read the poll narrowly as "streamed from an internet source", and for me, that would (potentially) be sourced by 98% Netflix, 2% Amazon. The point I was trying to make is that AV quality matters much more to me than convenience. I'd rather wait for the BluRay disk in the mail, than to stream.

Comment AIX @ IBM (Score 1) 204

I was a co-op at IBM in Manassas, VA in 1992. My group was aggregating components for a submarine-based rack system with an embedded "monstrous" 19" monitor. I thought running processes on a remote system and viewing the result on a local system was the coolest thing I had ever seen in my life. My mentor was tasked with finding every security leak he could in X. I was clueless then and my brain on overdrive just learning vi (not vim) and ksh. It was a mostly worthless internship, but it did imbue my soul with unix. So I have that going for me.
