VPNs
Time

Hey gang, I figured that this was a place with enough tech-savvy fan editors to ask, I recently got a VPN on my iPhone and just have a quick query. Pretty much the only reason I have it is because the Wi-Fi at work essentially blocks everything except the store website; I’m not using it to look at anything inappropriate. It is possible to set to exclude anything that it locks though? Like most of my streaming apps won’t work when it’s on, and I can’t really surf the web when it’s off while I’m at work. Kind of puts me in annoying position where I have to turn it on and off. Is there any way to manage its settings?

I may use it on my PC to find fan-edits if ever figure out how goddamn BitTorrent works 😉.

The Place to Go for Emotional Support
Time

I was making genuine progress with my new therapist (Easily the one with whom I’ve most clicked, and then a stupid stimulus caused me to backslide in my OCD. I barely survived this the first time, I can’t do it again. The medicine was helping, and I think I got complacent. If I’m lucky, it will be something I can work through. But I’m rarely lucky.

Audio commentaries
Time

Hey, gang, not sure if this is the right section of the forum to post this in, but I’ll roll the dice and let the mods move it. I’m starting to dig on putting movie audio commentaries on my iPod. In the past, I’ve done this with Total Recorder in real time. Though a pain, this has proven pretty effective. But this only works with DVDs because I use VLC media player; it’s harder to do with Blu-rays, and as far as I can tell, I can’t do it at all with my out-of-region Blus (I have a region-free Blu-ray player, but I’m not sure how to play them on a computer.). For the record, I have no intention whatsoever of putting these up online or anything of that nature; I simply like them for my own edification. Is there a quicker way to do this and to circumvent my problems with Blus, and especially alternate region discs? Figured this was a good place to ask 😉. I’ve been able to hunt down a few on YouTube too, but transferring those to MP3 and then to ACC within iTunes proves time-consuming as well.

restorations of Junkman and Deadline just got shared to MySpleen

Unfortunately, if you’re not on MySpleen, you’re kind of SOL 😦.

If you want them I can PM you an alternative

I’d appreciate it. I particularly want GI60S in 24p with the original audio if you have it! As far as I know, MySpleen is pretty much closed off, sadly.

What’s going on? I think The Wall should get a Criterion release, it would deserve it. But it’s annoying that I can’t even get a simple Blu-ray release.

Got me. Apparently they’ve even done the mix.

The "Is it in HD somewhere because I can't find it" thread.
Time

I have a fan version of the original Gone in 60 Seconds which syncs the HD video to the original audio (Presumably from VHS? I don’t think it was ever released on laserdisc?) that I found on the Internet Archive and YouTube, but I’m hunting for a version that’s 24p. Not a huge deal, just wondered.

Apparently Pink Floyd: The Wall is caught in the crossfire of the battle between Gilmore and Waters.

I have True Lies in Vudu, but I’m terrified they’ll take it down, it’s not 24p, and the audio isn’t lossless.
