I went ahead and purchased a blu-ray optical drive for my computer, actually I did this months ago and I quickly ran into a problem that only happens if I connect my monitor to the video card via a VGA cable (which is the only way it can connect)
Here is a warning from then used Power DVD 9 I believe it was, the usual HDCP warning.
VLC does a similar thing
The only real way around this is to go out and buy a new monitor with at least a HDMI input which was out of the question, so I left it for a while because I wasn’t really in the mood to troll through all the crap google brings up.
I stumbled upon an answer when i went to the DVDfab website for some other software, I found a small free/lite program called Passkey Lite, what this small program does is on the fly protection removal while you watch the movie (actually it pops up a dialog from the system tray and takes about 5 seconds to remove the protection from any dvd or blu-ray that I threw at it)
Now when you run the program for the first time it comes up stating which edition you would like to use.
Just choose the Lite / Free edition as it works fine.
I have been busy producing quiet a few minecraft videos and have forgotten to post each one on my site (this site) actually I have only posted the first episode on this site. You can view upto episode 25 on my youtube channel.
I also have enought video for around 10 more episodes.
Here are some screenshots of my world and to expect after episode 25.

So as you can see there are quiet a few things in the pipeline so to speak. Actually that is an understatement.
So keep watching and keep an eye out for future episodes.
Well My web site has reached a point where I seem to moderate spam comments more than actually creating content and in the last few weeks I have just given up on this site of which the main visitors seem to be people posting rubbish comments, anything from mens clothes and wallets to cheap prescription drugs.
I have had to completely disable all comments in order to stop this but now they are posting comments on pictures in my posts which I had no idea you could do.
For a few years I have used a plugin called ban ip, this is used to block spammers ip address from my web site which blocks them just fine but they still keep coming, I have also gone as far as blocking entire countries from accessing this web site.
I have actually made a decision, my domain name is dew for renewal in a few days, I don’t think I will renew it and just close / delete this site forever because I have lost a lot of interest in it. When I first started this site around 5 years ago I had a very different idea of where it / I would be today, this web site at the moment is mainly just full of useless out dated personal crap of which I only get visitors who don’t care about my actual content and just care about there crap spam comments.
So for now It is farewell from me. Actually I will keep the domain name because I have a few email accounts with it which I don’t want to change or give up. So in a few days I will backup the site and then just delete it.
Well after the close encounter with the 4WD in the car park it was time for another set of wheels.
excel side damage
And in with the new, I am yet to fully check this car over but she looks good so far.
mitsubishi magna 1994
This car is in mint condition, nice chrome rims, no towbar which we kind of wanted but we can’t have it all. Needs a wheel alignment but that is about it, good service history going by all the receipts in the glove box.
