HDDVD's are still the technology to stick by I am afraid. Funny, they are trying to bring back vinyl records LOL

No, just couldn't sit up for long periods of time, I was still trying to get all that fluid out of my lungs (ask Nacho, that has to be one of the worst things one has to do during recovery).

Ok, I have been corrected.....found the article on ZDNet that I referenced, and then later when they reversed that thought and declared Blu-ray the successor.

Actually, i would bet to get all the fidelity digitized from that ball, you'd need more cd's than there are records...

Amdukias (author)poopraham2008-10-09

Maybe the pipes are to provide venting, being black it would absorb lots of heat.. Wouldn't want a huge vinyl puddle. Or so the hamsters have a way in and out of the worlds largest darkest hamster ball lol.
