That is what I said to my father tonight as we sat and talked with a neighbor who dropped by. See, they were kinda boozing it a bit, and when my dad drinks he thinks he knows EVERYTHING. Anyway, the subject of those old 8 track tapes came up, my dad had a shitload of them back in the 70's and 80's but got rid of them, now he regrets it. Now we come to the heart of the matter of this thread, the 8 track discussion segwade(sp) into a discussion about the dvd format, and he says in his usual alchohol induced confident king-of-all tone, "In five years, they'll be able to fit 10 movies on one disc smaller than what's out now! And we'll all be screwed because we'll have to start all over again! Watch, you'll see." I knew it was futile, but I proudly said, equally as confident I might add, "Wrong! The next evolution for the dvd format will be hi-def dvd, and you will still be able to play all current standard def dvd's on the new hi def dvd players. Please don't argue with me on this, you can't win this one, I am a member of the HTF!" This is the first time I had ever used the forum as a credential in an argument, and it felt really good! The funny thing is I didn't even mean to say that, it just slipped out! Anyway, I am proud to announce that after I said my part, he relented! He didn't say anything, and I know my dad, when he doesn't speak, he knows he just MIGHT be wrong. I just thought I would share this with you all, as it felt good to use this forum as a badge of defense against one man's ignorance! I wasn't sure which area to post this in. My gut told me the 'After Hours' area, but then I thought it's about the dvd format so I guess it would go here in 'Software'. If i'm wrong I apologize.
