Youtube going down the tube

by Anna Beaulieu / October 26, 2006 3:03 AM PDT

The greatest thing about Youtube used to be that if you missed something important on TV (who sits in front of the TV all evening anyway) you could check Youtube and catch a short clip of the material. I used to check Youtube for the short Saturday Night Live clips, but now.....

"This video has been removed due to copyright infringement" in nice big red letters.

Thanks. So unless I have a big swaheli turban on my head and a hand full of tarot cards I won't possibly have the smarts to Tivo all interesting material. That's a huge gap, and I THOUGHT this is where Youtube fit in. Apparantly not.

Not really the greatest thing.

That was the greatest thing for you but it remained infringement. The best thing about YouTube is the truly user generated content and the community that it creates. It is a bummer that a ton of people at their desks every day can't browse around for last night's tv shows but YouTube was taking that stuff down before and they will continue to. As they should.

With that said, I could watch clips of the Battlestar galactica falling through the sky of New Caprica all day long Happy

Wasn't that just about the COOLEST thing ever?

God, I had chills watching that scene.

Galactica - falling, falling falling towards New Caprica's unforgiving surface; it's hull blistering red from the hell force of re-entry.

Helo: "Altitude 99,000 and falling like a rock"

Vipers eject from every available launch tube as the mothership falls to its doom. NOOOOOO GALACTICA!!!

Cut to ground view: The resistance fighters see the massive ship falling ever closer... 5000, 4000, 3000...

Adama: "Jump!"

Ground view: Just above them the massive fireball that is Galactica vanishes into hyperspace right before impact and the huge vacuum it leaves behind causes a hurricane of wind that nearly floors everybody to the ground.

I then wet myself.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
