- For what it's worth- I HATE Ebooks.
I prefer to be able to hold a real book, smell that new paper smell and feel
the weight of it in my hands. It's a tactile thing.

I should have added that when the files are take down at my request, all the
people who wanted to read them will think I'm just being a bitch and will
refuse to buy my books at all. And yes, I've had people tell me that to my

they got it from that site first will be vastly greater than the number of

need to panic here. Nobody's making money off of this on the sharer's side,

>>I didn't mind buying the DVD, as I wanted to support this specific project of Whedon's - AND I wanted the musical commentary - but at the same time, it ticked me off that I did have to buy it twice.....It's all a matter of which technology you use, I guess. I use our DVR a lot, but I can only watch what I record on it, on it, whereas if I use a video tape, I can move it around. Then again, I can only play it on a VHS player. iTunes is what it is. I think if you buy a copy of a show, it's yours forever, though they do have a rental service, too. It's still cheaper to use Netflix for renting, though, at least for me.
