Slowtime

So I’ve had this PC for however long I’ve had it now, and still haven’t installed Quicktime. As in, I haven’t been putting it off, and I’ve been watching plenty of Quicktime content, but I just haven’t seen the need to. As in, it didn’t cross my mind. Because I can install VLC in a matter of seconds with out worrying about annoying “upgrade to pro” prompts or battling the website to let me download a version without full-of-DRM-style-crap music library player wossit. Whatever happened to Nullsoft/Winamp, anyway? I’ve been stuck on a little island called “open-source” (it has penguins but is strangely not that uncomfortable) for a couple of years… then this massive cruise liner came along and picked me up and offered to take me home for about $200. I didn’t get a glossy brochure about the cruise but it’s functionally the same, and now I’m back home wondering what transpired in my absence. Do people still use that thing? Anyway, whatever. Quicktime in the official sense seems kinda redundant with the exception of good/easy browser integration. The end.
