100.... weekly..... wow.....

I was trying to find that photo of Hoxlund's Bedroom but it seems to be gone now. Appears as if showing it again would be appropriate so that newer folks could see just how Hox manages to burn 100 DVDs a week.

I wouldn't buy a stick of gum from Meritline, much less take a chance on what media they might send me. :o Highly recommend going to Rima for TY.

Yeah, you wonder what he's up to and what is he copying and how much.

One movie a week copied 100 times.
One hundred movies copied once each.
Ten movies copied ten times each, or .........

A dodgy friend of mine is pushing out around 500 discs a week. Large scale pirate, he's been busted 3 times but the laws are so lax he's back in business the following day....
