OK, I got the DVD to rip properly finally. Found out it was actually my DVD burner that was going bad.

Anyone that wanted a copy, please resend your shipping address to me. iwill try and actually get them sent out this time.

Sorry about the horrendous delay!

Right, I'm burning more copies today to get ready to mail out. I burned two yesterday.. my burner works at *4x* over usb1.1, so it's... slow... :P

I'm doing burn verifications and then testing them in my DVD players to make sure they work before I send any out.

No freaking way!!!

I wouldn't risk doing 20 years in prison for distributing a corporation's confidential and copyrighted materials!

My understanding was that these were Marketing/Sales/Promotional videos that were distributed to the public, so no trade secrets or confidential information.

The copyright issue is technically a valid concern, but only if they assert the protection and actively enforce it, such as requesting that youtube take the videos down. Copyright is a confusing multi-headed hydra that most of my lawyer friends avoid like the plague, especially right now.

ell, one of the videos is "internal use only" :P

But, NeXT -as a company- has been dead for 10 years. And this isn't for profit. So I highly doubt anyone is going to care.

Anyways, anyone that wants copies should private message me their address.

I just got one back in the mail... da9000, I typo'd your address Razz I gotta resend it. Sorry.
