That Awful Ad Against Film Piracy

Posted: March 18, 2015 in Blurbs, Movies

The Motion Picture Anti Film Piracy Council (MPAFPC), Motion Picture Association (MPA) and the Optical Media Board (OMB) has done it again – unleashed a god-awful infomercial that, quite frankly, I am not even sure works aside from annoying paying moviegoers.

If you somehow managed to avoid going to the theaters in recent years and are completely unaware of what I’m talking about, those organizations above, in their attempt to create public awareness regarding the anti-piracy laws, have created cringe-worthy ads such as the unfunny and irritating one featuring Wally Bayola and Jose Manalo, followed by the only slightly more bearable duo of Randy Santiago and John Estrada.

The latest ad is a long-winded action movie wannabe. At slightly less than two minutes (read: too long!), it only manages to depict how incompetent cops are at apprehending suspects, not to mention the recklessness and irresponsibility of firing a gun when it’s totally uncalled for.

Talk about sending the wrong message. What lame-ass keeps coming up with this crap?

In Unix and Linux, you can string commands so that they will be executed one after the other, like so:

cd /usr/foo/home; mkdir tester; cd tester

The same can be done in Windows Command Prompt; stringing commands can be achieved through the use of ampersands and pipes:

Command A & Command B

Execute “Command A,” then execute “Command B” without evaluating anything. In other words, each command will be executed one after the other.

Even if the first command fails, as in the second instance the command was used here, the succeeding commands still got executed.

Command A && Command B

Execute “Command A,” evaluate its exit code (or errorlevel) after running, and if it’s 0, only then execute “Command B”

In the first example above, a test folder was successfully created, which made the “cd test” command possible, which in turn made the “dir” command execute. If the “mkdir test” command fails as in the last example, both the cd and dir commands are not executed.

Command A | Command B

Execute “Command A” and redirect all its output as input of “Command B.”

Command A || Command B

Execute “Command A,” and if the exit code evaluates to anything but 0, only then execute “Command B.”

In the example, “world” becomes the input to the second command.
