Yay! I can finally log back into LJ. It is such a pain in the ass when you keep getting all kinds of errors trying to login, read friend's journals, or post a message. I'm really not angry. I know that LJ has problems that crop up from time to time and they have been great. I was just really bored today and not being able to check out LJ was very frustrating.
I ended up watching DVD movies while waiting to get back on LJ. So far, 2 movies are giving me trouble in the DVD player. The Mummy Returns was the first movie that gave me trouble. big blocks would show up on the screen and the DVD player sounded terrible. At the end of the movie, I saw a Splash screen with MACROVISION Protection. If that damn Protection F***ed up my DVD player, I'm going to be very PISSED OFF!
The other movie that doesn't seem to want to play is Ice Age. I tried to put it in right after the other movie gave me trouble, so I'm not sure if it is the DVD or the Player.
