With the profusion of high bandwidth service, and reasonable cost unlimited news-servers, the trend over the last few years has slowly been from 'nothing but recodes' to more and more full dvd9 postings.
The last couple of months, though, I've noticed a 'trend' that is worrying, postings that 'appear' to be full dvd9's, but arn't, either stripping one thing or another off, or missing the small 'bits and pieces' like CD-ROM folders, and the like. One would think, at the minimum, ripping the entire disc to ISO would be about the easiest thing to do, but apparently it's a major challenge to some folks. Some try to post the video.ts folders and 'screw the pooch' doing that. Great.
Just a bit of a 'vent' here, but it's almost 'out of hand'. I've spend the time and effort over the last couple of weeks to d/l things that were available without any extras in the 'recode' market, but wanted the 'full tilt deal'. Only to find that the 'stripped' dvd9 was hacked to pieces by the poster, in some misguided attempt to.... what?
Yeah Yeah Yeah, I guess it's what people think 'is right'... on what planet is my question. And thanks for the attempt
But the amount of full postings is really starting to take off (FIOS maybe?). Hope the trend continues, but also hope that a BIT more care is taken in the run up to super-speed!
