Hollywood Sets $10 Billion Box Office Record

bman08 Box Office is a Small Part of the Equation (276 comments)

This is great news for the small percentage of movies that get theatrical release. But DVD numbers are in the toilet, and that's a critical revenue stream for all your low budget and indie stuff. I'm loathe to imply that piracy does or doesn't have anything to do with the problem but this article does not paint an accurate picture of where the movie business is at.

Recovering Moldy Electronics?

bman08 Re:There is hope (512 comments)

Really? My mold-remediation guy flipped his lid when I asked about bleach. Something about how the solution is too weak to kill anything and you're providing the mold with plenty of water that it needs to thrive. Apparently, there are specific mold-killing products that you're supposed to use in these applications.
