By way of slashdot:

An anonymous reader writes "It seems that the most recent DVDs released by Sony — specifically Stranger Than Fiction, Casino Royale, and The Pursuit of Happyness — have some kind of 'feature' that makes them unplayable on many DVD players. This doesn't appear to be covered by the major media yet, but this link to a discussion over at Amazon gives a flavor of the problems people are experiencing. A blogger called Sony and was told the problem is with the new copy protection scheme, and they do not intend to fix it. Sony says it's up to the manufacturers to update their hardware."

Unrelated to the issue, but an amusing quote none-the-less:
Yes, well, in the U.S. at least we'll probably have to wait until we can get in that new President and Congress we ordered. The current ones are malfunctioning and in need of replacement.

Hah! We win! (eh, we = consumers, anyhow)

"Consumers will receive new malware and vulnerability-free CDs, a patch to remove the offending XCP or MediaMax code, and Sony will be dishing out free downloads."

In other news, I found eMule (eDonkey?) to be an awesome network for large files. Like several archives of Hooked on Classics~ <3 =^^=v

It also helped me locate MariBato, a doujinshi Maria-sama Ga Miteru game. (...a Maria-sama Ga Miteru doujinshi game? which goes first..?). It's been uploaded to MegaUploads (:P YouSendIt, why did you have to limit your upload sizes to 50MB?) and you can download it here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZTKJ1MZB

(Disclaimer for the file: I've run it on my own PC, but I give no guarantees of it not being a virus. It _does_ crash for me, every time the battle ends and I return to the main menu.)
