taking away their parity bits, but without them, TR would be inaccessible..

Like nuclear warfare, but enough to instill the fear of a Grizzly, or the likes.

A good enough reason, to me, to return Soni to the Big Screen. But they never really listen to us here... I remember sending a ripper of an idea to the techs (specifically- regarding the addition of a "NEW", or something that has the same effect, icon on the print/view all page of the discussion/question forums, like what is visible before you click print/view all) and they said a polite 'thanks but no thanks'. My point is this, maybe we give them incentive.... perhaps danger for not complying. :^0

but without the video, it seems that there are almost no posts at all, go figure.

Gotta find a good reason to bring it back. Speaking of which, what was the reason for removing it? Time spent > worth, or something along those lines?
