Congratulations on your honesty regarding your thievery!

Your justification - You want to see what it feels like to be a Christian for just one day and give yourself a Christmas gift.

Why did he have to pop the button on his shirt. Doesn't he realize the entire closet is in front of the thread?
OK so technically it is just everything that was stored in that closet where we had a water leak. Leak was under the house and had to empty the closet to get to it.
Haven't put the stuff back up yet. Not till we are sure it won't spring another one.

I don't condone copyright infringement however when you have paid for something as in 'bought', then it should be available for backup to a DVD-R to play on any unit. Rentals don't apply because that would be stealing.

I'm going to buck the system and their rules and find a program to remove the content protection so I can burn it to DVD. Please don't call the FBI on me.

At least I know for sure that when I make a backup copy of copyrighted material, it is legal here in Canada, as long as I don't violate a digital lock. The bill described in the following article, has been passed into law.

He isn't really talking about backing up something he purchased. He's talking about copying it to another medium so he can play it in a manner for which he does not have permission.

I hate auto-correct, as if it is not bad enough that I cannot spell or type, auto-correct makes it even worse.

never the less, my excuse of wanting it worked for me. Of course being a sucker that I am. I already told my wife. I'm sure she'll love it.

Oh, and Chanukkah is early this year, so I'm good.

So glad to hear that. So save the other excuse for when you might need it. Insert "birthday", "anniversary" "St. Patricks Day", "Graduation Day for your child, for whatever occasion, etc.
