Well... I am not actually watching the movies as they go from disc to network. I just watch the process and swap discs as needed.

it does take 20 to 40 minutes per disc, and I have two machines doing it.

DLNA allows me to stream my content to my devices on my network. Kinda like having my own NetFlix.

It's a technology that allows you to watch movies or TV shows downloaded to your computer or tablet on your TV or smartphone, for example. It lets you view or listen to all your digital media on all your digital devices through a home network.

Thanks for clearing that up. I just didn't see how a person could actually WATCH that many movies! (What I don't know about some technology would take a LOT longer to download!)

When a movie is based on a true story, that can mean that just the basic plot was a true story, but the rest can be creative license. It's not intended to be a documentary.

+1 (sub-titled "Don't Believe Everything You See in the Movies" or the Internet or a book.)

And all this time I thought Mark Wahlberg was rescued and that's how he could keep making movies

Conspiracy theory yesterday. First up was a movie that caught my eye at Netflix, JFK: The Smoking Gun. Excellent movie with just a couple slow parts. No doubt in my mind that if the facts they were presenting were indeed facts, there were two different shooters. Bullets just don't make holes smaller than their caliber.
And then recommended to me because I watched that was Interview with the Assassin. This one was fiction, but done up like Blair Witch. I found it entertaining and again thought provoking.
