    When I leave Indonesia (where I've lived for nine years) and return to England for good, I'll have to either abandon my current DVD collection or take with me an Indonesian region-coded player on which to play them. This of course will nececitate my having two DVD players in my new home - one to play DVD's I bought before my return, and one to play those I will buy after my return.

    I know it's possible to buy a region-free model, which would anyway make my current player obsolete, but it's the principle of the matter that gets me. I mean, wouldn't there still be enough money awash in Hollywood without these regional restrictions? The same number of swimming pools and limos? The same number of fat cigars and corporate lawyers?

    Does anyone else agree that DVD coding amounts simply to greed in an industry where everyone, including the stars themselves, is obscenely overpaid?

    I dont know why the codecs are different. I think it is NTSC v PAL. Some players can be modded for region free use. Are the voltages compatible?

    Do files get embarrassed when they get unzipped?
