Format Shift

In case anyone out there is doubting my absolute nerdiness, I currently have a VCR hooked up to my computer through an NTSC to USB converter and I’m converting my old VHS copy of Hackers to an mpeg so I can store it on my Windows Home Server and stream it to my TiVo. Any other pseudo-nerd would just use BitTorrent to download a pirated copy of their favorite movies from the internet, but I’m one of those crazy people who think that copyright serves a purpose. At the same time, I absolutely stand behind my right to format shift the digital content I’ve already purchased to new formats.

“Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my mind the most.”

That’s my rant on format shifting. Interested in robot shifting? Check out Robot Shift – make the move to industrial robots.
