Police in the Malaysian district of Miri have used a steamroller to crush 1069 computers allegedly used to mine Bitcoin, using stolen electricity which often causes blackouts.  Dozens of raids, six arrests with sentences of up to eight months and $1,900 fines, and the destruction of three houses. (HT The Register.)

Government waste and stupidity.  The Malaysian government could have upgraded many of their countries computers on the cheap.

If that would happen here in Germany, I'd guess that there is just no proper bureaucratic process for that.

If nothing else, the Malay govt could have recouped a significant amount of their lost capital (from the stolen energy), due to the ongoing chip shortage, by simply SELLING the hardware.  That was a bitcoin mining operation, so there would have been hawt GPUs in there.  Even second hand, those would have fetched a pretty penny right now.

I think everyone can be mean depending on what's going on.

If I am breathing, I am mean.

If you are making a direct copy then DVD Decrypter has always been my goto. Rip to ISO and burn all with the same program. Also has the capability to remove certain limits on the original like the inability to skip trailers and stuff like that. Been using it for like 20 years now.

DeCSS library in Linux. (Since this is the only way to view DVDs at all under Linux, I am heavily lacking any sense of doing something forbidden.)
