Looks like you're not the only one with these types of issues...

Yeah, it's ridiculous. They should never have usedsilverlight for video streaming. It's just terrible. It also screwed over anyone not using x86 and everyone on linux.

There's actually a way to spoof the operating system in Linux through Firefox from what I've read over at UbuntuForums. Not sure how it's done but it's not completely impossible to use Netflix, as there's Moonlight (I think that's the app) which emulates Silverlight.

moonlight just gives me the 'get silverlight' thing. I tried it a while back. Thanks though.

Btw, is there a way to turn the lcd off on an iphone with the app still running and active? I want to convert the remains of my iphone into an input device for my computer.

Wish I could help you but all of the forums I go to for cars are Honda related. ;D

I have this shelf where I put my Gundam models and miscellaneous figures on. However, I do also own a cat, and sometimes in the morning when I don't wake up, she likes to find things to play with, and it seems like my shelf is her first priority. Do any of you guys know know to either protect it or somehow stop my cat from attacking it? Without doing anything to the cat.

Pet repellent yes it smells, but it keeps them away at least.

I don't think that's a very good idea as it's only about 15 feet away from my bed.

What's the difference between I.T. and Computer Science and Engineering? My current college offers I.T. (2 years, and it's a community college), but not Computer Science and Engineering. However, the current school I am trying to transfer into has Computer Science and Engineering (4 years, University), and not I.T.

I'm thinking of getting into the field of programming by the way.

Put duct tape sticky side up on the shelf. Worked for my cat.
