    Um...it's FREE? If you want fast and free maybe Bit Torrent?

    It's public domain. It has to be free. 21k/sec on a connection that regularly gets over 800 is abysmal.

    No, it's public domain, so it can be free. They still sell this! (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/t...=pd_bbs_1/002-4633290-9073611?v=glance&s=dvd).

    The only difference is that since it's public domain, I can legally copy it and give it to a friend, or use it in an add, or even repackage it and sell it myself. The site could very well charge a membership for bandwidth usage. I'm getting 50 KB/sec over a wireless connection, and it's simply clicking on an HTTP link. I'm getting my money's worth.

    Odd, I downloaded "Nosferatu" last night and am currently downloading "Night of The Living Dead", both at around 220 KB/s, from a 2Mbit connection, and that's wireless on my ibook, not bad if you ask me!

    That might involve some work...are you okay with just listening with the left headphone?

    If it were me, I'd take the left channel and make it an uncompressed mono track, and then use QuickTime Pro to do a pass through with the video, but encode the audio as a mono track. It would probably take 10-15 minutes per video, though.

    Night good but Dawn great

    Night Of The Living Dead may have started the zombie genre but it was the sequel Dawn Of The Dead that established it for good. In it survivors take over an abandoned shopping mall that has to be cleared of zombies and later a bikie gang. Essential viewing for anyone concerned about a zombie apocalypse.

    Night of the Living Dead was a nice find but I found another treasure. The Computer Chronicles is a gold mine of history going back to the 1980's including Atari, Commodore, Apple, and IBM products. Steve Jobs has one from 1998 in the archive but I wish I could have seen one from the 80's.
