Thanks, SXSW. Your attendee-hostility grows every year. It's like you're using Burning Man as your customer service model.


I guess it's time to update my script to try and rip all the music from their site on my own.

If so, it’s probably a bad idea, and you shouldn’t do it.

  1. I’ve been there too. A few months ago I wrote a command that wrapped like twelve times in a standard Terminal window to unwrap some videos “protected" by Twistage. The only reason I didn’t share it here is that some particularly brain-dead paid video platforms also use the same mechanism, and I don’t want to help piracy.
