So the combination is... one, two, three, four, five? That's the stupidest combination I've ever heard in my life! The kind of thing an idiot would have on his luggage!

Video Appliance For a Large Library On a Network?

AgentUSA Re:Plex is closed source - watch that EULA! (516 comments)

The Plex client that was forked from XBMC is still open source. But the Plex Media Server back end is closed. And the devs seem to be concentrating most of their efforts right now on the media server.

They also seem to be doing everything they can to give as little as possible back to XBMC. I don't know if that's due to bad blood from their split two years ago. Or because they want to turn Plex into a business.

Boxee Launches New API

AgentUSA Re:Say what? (69 comments)

Actually the Plex Media Server is closed source even through Plex itself is open source. I like Plex a lot but I don't like the fact that they don't want to share it with XBMC or Boxee. So I'll probably be switching soon.

When would they have time then to work on the zero day patch that's needed because the publisher released the game before it was ready?

As Christmas Bonus, Google Hands Out "Dogfood"

AgentUSA It had to be said (366 comments)

Hey. If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, fore-fleshing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is. Hallelujah. Holy shit. Where's the Tylenol?
