Hey, since I brought that up - what's the usual way of digitizing a video signal and storing it as an .avi (or whatever) file?
Is it of any concern whether a PAL or NTSC signal is fed into the computer, or must it be NTSC?
Are there multi-format VCRs that not only play back PAL tapes, but convert the signal to NTSC before outputting it as well?
I'd like some starting pointers, maybe online FAQs/guides on that stuff.

So does that make Huckleberry Finn racist?
That's a great story and was re-done as a movie not too long ago.

Actually, yes. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is on the top 5 list of banned books in the United States public school system. (I think its either number 1 or 2. Wait....I think The Catcher in the Rye holds the number one spot). At any rate, I know that AP high school students are allowed to read these books, but regular literature students are not.

Um, no. My girlfriend's brother read Huck Finn last year in 7th grade and I read Catcher in the Rye in 11th grade. Unless this is VERY recent, I don't think they're banned. Maybe in some states, but not on a nationwide level.
