Re: Tech experts: Do YouTube videos quality decay over time?

No, digital doesn't degrade. That's the entire point.

The ringing was probably always there, just that the speakers of the day weren't as high fidelity.

Re: Wallabies were absolutely robbed!

Meh, rugby is a messy game you can find a penalty in every second ruck if you look hard enough.

The only glaring error with the touchline thing and shit happens.

Re: It's official, Sweden declare themselves the Covid winners

Time will tell. Personally I think NZ went too hard and have screwed over the economy in the process but we shall see.

NZ is basically assuming there will be an effective vaccine. There is no surety of that at all. Is the country just going to lock itself down every outbreak?

I'd take him over Foster any day of the week.

He does have a very robust setup helping him though. Canterbury/Crusaders more than any other organization adapted best to the professional era.
