What percentage of your media consumption is streamed?

CheshireDragon Re:Not sure... (152 comments)

Use a VPN. Currently only Hulu are a bunch of dicks that don't allow VPN. Netflix and YouTube still allow VPN.

What percentage of your media consumption is streamed?

CheshireDragon Re:Definitions (152 comments)

This is what i was wondering. I have several TB of movies and about 10GB of music that is all stored on a custom built NAS in a 4u rack mount case. Storage my friend...anyway, this is what I(and my roommates) stream most of our movies/music from in the house. Other times, only for movies and music we don't yet have we use Pandora, Spotify, Netflix or Hulu. If it's only what comes from the ISP/Internet side then that's about 20%...if you want to count what is streamed internally as well, it's about 90%.

Someone needs to tell that to those cunts at Verizon. They sent me letters because I was downloading. After I obtained a VPN, they stopped and for good reason heheh

^^ I second this. I am in the USA, but I don't give one or even two fucks about where the site is located. Currently it is located on my TV, in my bedroom, right in front of me. That is where it needs to be for optimum viewing experience.

Study: People Would Rather Be Shocked Than Be Alone With Their Thoughts

CheshireDragon Re:How fitting (333 comments)

I'll add to this since I am an introvert, but I also have Claustrophobia and Anthropophobia on a more mild level. It doesn't keep me locked up in a house like Agoraphobia.
A) I do need money so I have a job where I go into an office and play around on networks all day and have very little interaction with my coworkers face to face. We use MS Lync, mostly, to communicate. Its use makes it VERY easy for me to talk to people.
B) Who needs a mate? opposite sex is nothing, but a problem. However, I've realized that I am more of the problem in a relationship so I stay away rather than get my heart ripped out every couple years.
C) If I need to go to the store to shop for food then I usually work up the courage and go late at night when the crowds are minimal OR I go with one of my roommates and they pretty much act as a 'handler' or distraction to everything else that is going on. That way the crowds of people at the store aren't so bad. For clothing and most everything else I need I can buy online and have delivered right to my door.

Also I'd like to know what survey you did that paid you 50$. The last time I took a survey was about a decade ago and they were only going to pay me 3$. I asked for 5$ so I could actually buy lunch and they walked away. Cheap bastards! Last time I remember getting 50$ for other than an hour worth of work was when I donated plasma. Twice a week and get 30$ for the first visit and 20$ for the second visit.

CheshireDragon Re:Bears? (333 comments)

Limited protection. But the 2 things you should ALWAYS carry on you are a hatchet(or knife) and a lighter. If you get lost out in the wilderness those two things can be rather helpful.

Netflix Trash-Talks Verizon's Network; Verizon Threatens To Sue

CheshireDragon Re:No proof? (364 comments)

This!
Anytime I have issues streaming with Netflix I just throw on my VPN(from private internet access) and problem solved. IF Verizon wants proof, I have it right here.

Ask Slashdot: A 'Mavis Beacon' For Teaching Smartphone and Tablet Typing?

CheshireDragon Re:video games (55 comments)

I should have stated video gaming with consoles. I thought it was quite obvious by typing with both thumbs, but I guess there's always one clueless chap in the crowd.

Ask Slashdot: A 'Mavis Beacon' For Teaching Smartphone and Tablet Typing?

CheshireDragon video games (55 comments)

"people type fast-and-furiously on smartphones and tablets, so you know it can be done, but how exactly do these one- and two-fingered wonders (YouTube video) manage to do so?"

And my mom said playing video games wouldn't amount to anything. Look how fast I can type on my phone now bitch...my thumbs are flying

Netflix Ditches Silverlight For HTML5 On Macs

CheshireDragon Re:Linux soon? (202 comments)

Exactly. So smashing them down to anything smaller than 10GB will lose SOME quality.

Netflix Ditches Silverlight For HTML5 On Macs

CheshireDragon Re:Linux soon? (202 comments)

No cap at all. You're aware that you can compress them down to less than 5GB without losing much quality? If not, I see large pointless purchasing of 4TB HDDs in your future.

Netflix Ditches Silverlight For HTML5 On Macs

CheshireDragon Re:About friggin time. (202 comments)

Then you have a shitty computer, slow connection or user error. I've been using it on 10.6 for over 2 yrs on my MBP. I usually watch a movie before bed while in bed, so maybe a good 2-3 movies a week on it and I've never experienced what you speak of.

CheshireDragon Re:Linux soon? (202 comments)

Why the hell would anyone want to copy a stream from them anyway? Even on HD it still looks DVD quality at best. IF I am going to copy or download a movie I am going for highest quality possible.

Steam is already hard at work on this, but there still are very few games for linux. The ONLY reason I still have a Windows based rig is for gaming...and it's a monster -RAR-
