in reply to The next successful successor to DVD as a medium for video will be:

People like having their movies in some sort of physical form. I think that while the number of movies you can put on a disc may change, the basic medium (a small, flat, round disc that you put in a drive) is not likely to change any time soon. Streaming is all very well for watching your weekly TV show, but when you're buying a whole season of the same TV show, you want it on DVD. That way you can play it anywhere, not just on a computer that has a high speed connection and the proper software installed.

I don't forsee DVD being replaced.

    /me wonders if you forsaw Records being replaced? Cassette Disks? VHS? etc.

    If we could all forsee the future that would be pretty boring, but i think we can all agree DVD isn't the perfect format. Things will always get faster, better, cheaper, etc.

[Discipulus]: many monks want to be hired tonight, other haired and some aired
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, do glob recurse?
[Lady_Aleena]: s/do/does/;
LanX wants to be fired
[Discipulus]: i fear no
[Discipulus]: i invented also 'gired'
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, then that is a problem. I wanted to find total seconds of my entire .mp3 collection to do some math on it to see how many days of continuous music i have.
[LanX]: darn. .. I wanted to see Marine and Melonchon go to next round, just for fun xD
[Discipulus]: LA use Perl: traversing a dir tree is simple; foreach file mp3 $sec+= use Mp3::Info
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, I was able to get the sum of the seconds on the command line using awk. Then I ran the result through a perl script and got the result. It came bach with 4 days, 9 hours, 56 minutes, 43 seconds.
