I was enjoying this episode until the tequila bottle nonsense
I thought this episode was fine until the massive technical errors in the final two scenes, which ruined it for me. Here's the list:
* Since when does anyone have a laptop lying around with a prompt saying "Delete 9,000 hours of premium 4K porn, press Delete to confirm"? Delete (or Backspace) is used to delete characters, not to confirm a prompt (which would typically be y, n or Enter), never mind that actually having that prompt up in the first place is utterly ludicrous.
* They were downloading the porn, so there's no need for remote write or delete access at all - anyone competent would have made the files read-only and undeleteable on the remote server.
* Er, backups? *Surely* the downloaded porn wasn't the only copy the porn company they had? Porn companies are IT trailblazers and they most *definitely* would have backups since the files are their lifeblood.
* The final scene where Richard claims files were deleted faster because of the compression algorithm literally makes no sense whatsoever. They were accessing uncompressed original video files, so the deletion of such files has absolutely nothing to do with the compression algorithm.
Yes, I understand that the whole tequila bottle thing was purely for comic effect, but to make so many major technical errors around it really spoiled the joke for me.
