Occasionally I switch topics entirely away from politics. Not often. But here's an invaluable tech hint to give you the extra time to read my blog.
Anyone who watches DVD movies knows the agony of wading through the movie trailers. But you don't have to. There are several conventional ways to try to bypass the FBI notices, trailers, etc., though sometimes the DVD folks have countermeasures to defeat your efforts.
I've found a really simple "skip" option that seems to work on just about everyone's DVD. I got the hint from CNet's video:
Unfortunately, their hint didn't work on my DVD -- but it led me to my own solution.
Their skip process is easy. With the annoying item playing, on the DVD remote hit "stop, stop, play." Presto! The real movie starts.
For me, that didn't work. But I found that "stop, stop, STOP, play" worked like a charm on my DVD remote.
Carpe diem! Or at least, carpe remote.
