Ah, technology

I’m sitting in my lounge with my laptop balanced on my legs. I’ve just finished making alterations to my aunt’s website which is hosted thousands of miles away on servers on the west coast of the US. At the same time, my laptop is streaming out The Sweet Body of Deborah to my modified XBox which is running XBMC . What’s even better is that this film has never seen an official DVD release. Luckily home technology is good enough that enterprising people can take old video copies of these films, record from onto a PC’s hard drive, clean up the video and audio, compress it using very efficient algorithms and then share it out over the internet.

As for the film? Well, it’s good so far and I’ve got plenty more unwatched giallo to get through from the same sources. All because of the technology at our fingertips.
