hi <br><br>I have a really interesting video that I have shot for a Scientology buster. He is the only guy to successfully sue Scientology. He conducted a seminar recently, and we need a way to get the video to him. We tried an external hard drive, but that was problematic, because his hard drive was Windows-oriented (he is still stuck on Windows, for various reasons). In the past, I burned a video to DVD, but he wasn't able to open it, again, due to problems with Windows' locked-down formating, meaning that apparently Windows wouldn't open the DVD because it the DVD wasn't DRM'd (of course).
<br><br>I normally don't support anyone with Windows issues, and I would ordinarily just tell this guy he needs to go get an inexpensive computer and let me install Linux on it, or maybe I would be able get a FOSS box from James Burgett of
ACCRC.org. But this guy is doing really, really good work against Scientology. He is a former Scientologist who was taken to a ship, tortured, and he eventually escaped and now is a huge thorn in the side of the world's most powerful, most deadly cult. (Although Lars Nooden of the ODF calls Microsoft itself a cult, heh).
<br><br>At any rate, I am thinking that if we had an FTP site where I could load up the video that I shot of this guy giving his talk, he could grab it, edit it with a FOSS movie video editor such as Avidemux under Windows, and then put it up on YouTube. This guy talks about his experiences with Scientology, and the video is nothing short of riveting for people who are interested in using FOSS to bust Scientology.
<br><br>I am wondering if we could create a temporary virtual machine as we were discussing on Monday; then we could use that vm as the FTP repository, and then just delete that vm after he was done so that Scientology won't have an avenue for attack.
<br><br>In the meantime, I will continue working to wean this guy off of Microsoft. ;-) <br><br>Thanks either way.<br>
