    I was not very busy at work today so I decided to 'analyze' my DVD collection.
    Total DVDs = 168
    Total DVDs in DD 5.1 = 144
    Percent DVDs in DD 5.1 = 86%
    Total DVDs in DTS = 28
    Percent DVDs in DTS = 17%
    Total DVDs Anamorphic Widescreen = 113
    Percent DVDs Anamorphic Widescreen = 67%
    Most of my non-anamorphic widescreen DVDs were purchased early in my DVD collecting experience. I have purchased a couple of non-anamorphinc widescreen DVDs recently, but most were 'needed'. [​IMG]

    Percentage of discs that only contain the version "Formatted to fit your screen": 0
    (This does not include the $5 Simitar Jackie Chan movies I bought which are pan and scan, because there is no indication onscreen or on the packaging, so I didn't know what I was getting. If "Formatted To Fit Your Screen" is anywhere on the package, I don't buy it.)

    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.
