Sure what the hell my ego could use a little stroking.

1. This question basically boils down to "how do I know you?" and the answer to that is basically via Uni friends - from when I first started at Melbourne Uni.

2. Smoke on the Water, Deep Purple

3. Your classic rock musical sensibilities.

4. You hosted the best New Years Eve party I've ever been to.

5. Long John Silver (as played by Tim Curry)

6. Which HD video format do you think will win the current format wars, HD-DVD, BluRay or neither?

Well here's the thing, BluRay has bigger support by the major film companies, it also has the Playstation which now it's finally been released is being sold basically on the idea that it's the cheapest Blu-Ray player you can buy and incedently it's a games machine, not that there are many games for it ATM. And yes it holds more information than HD-DVD. On the HD-DVD side if your company press's DVD's to upgrade to press HD-DVD's it costs around $150,000 but if you want to upgrade to press Blu-ray then it's going to be around 2 million dollars. Also HD-DVD has the porn industry on it's side. In the 80's that would have been it, guys want porn, you can only get it from HD-DVD therefore they buy a HD-DVD player, these days you can get porn just about everywhere and you don't have to pay for it, sure it might be nice (note I say might) to have some HD porn but to the casual user it's far from essential. On the other hand there will be no porn at all on Blu-Ray this is not a good decision on Sony's part, they could have easily had this sewn up but I don't think they do, almost all comentators seem to think that Blu-Ray has won already, I don't think that's quite true it's still going to be a battle, but I'll tell you that if someone came out with a Dual player that had a hard drive in it for under $1000 I'd buy it tommorow.
