If you're not going to respect it.

In the Quicktime Preference Pane there is an option to prevent QT movies from automatically playing as they are downloaded. I think it's called Fast Start or something. I have it unchecked but it doesn't seem to matter. Some movies won't play and others will. I memory serves me, you can enable this feature and embed that setting in the movie itself. So why do I have the option to turn it off if it's not always going to be turned off?

I hate when movies start playing by themselves!!! I'll play you when I want you to play. And you're right, a lot of movies don't seem to pay attention to this, including videos from the iTMS...grrrrr.

Come waste your time with me

Guess you'll have to stop downloading porn at work?

*Sigh* Remember the good ole days of 10.0 when we had huge bugs to gripe about. (But yes I wish it were fixed too)

HA! Porn at work...I wish. I've never had a job that I use a computer on. My current job is in a bakery, no computers there.
