tspaghetti What does a PR person do, exactly? (576 comments)

The way he responded wouldn't even be appropriate if the customer were directly, personally insulting him to start off with. As a PR guy, you have to hold your tongue, whether the person you're talking to is internet famous or not.

Ask Slashdot: Can Schools Convert VHS to DVD?

tspaghetti tspaghetti writes  |  more than 2 years ago

tspaghetti (2341496) writes "I'm an IT Support tech at a school district in Maine, and we're running into a problem with old VHS tapes. As time goes on, more and more of them are deteriorating and ultimately failing. Many older educational VHS titles aren't available on DVD, so purchasing new digital copies is out of the question. Adding to the complexity is the fact that the individual teachers, not the schools, own many of the VHS tapes in question. Is there any way to legally preserve these tapes, either through conversion to DVD or some other way?"
