my company's systems (we heavily rely on AWS, ELB, and EBS) is still up.

Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the VP is such a VIP, shouldn't we keep the PC on the QT? 'Cause if it leaks to the VC he could end up MIA, and then we'd all be put on KP.

NFA:I was about the chew out my nephew for screwing up the Netflix settings on the TV.  He was the last one using it and tinkers with everything.

jwmc1971: christ , farkers dont know about project free tv ?! just google it . its 10 times better than the crappy pile of crap netflix is .

best of all its FREE ! like a tv show thats old or current ? its on there along with 100's of popular movies and more are added daily .

i used to download all my shows but now why bother . just aired shows are posted within an hour of airing . plenty of links to choose from . best streaming site out there . cut off cable , netflix and my news hosting service once i found this . i use my 50" tv as a monitor . stuff looks great .
btw , use a pop up/adblocker with this site and no need to join either . they also have forums .


Thanks, guy doing an infomercial for Project FreeTV!

tinfoil-hat maggie: Anne.Uumellmahaye: Mock26: I have to say I am surprised that A Christmas Story was not pulled from Television this holiday season.

Whyfore?

My family watched it on probably TBS earlier this evening. So I have no idea what you're talking about.

And well Netfllix is slow tonight but you can still get on.


They make a reference to a kid getting his eye shot out for Chrissakes! Just weeks after children actually did get their eyes shot out for the first time in history ever. How can you not make that connection and be horrified by it? I mean...can you imagine? Think of the children!

Strongbeerrules: I miss the Hitler Channel. It was fascinating to watch hour after hour of History Channel coverage of WWII. I once saw 60 minutes of documentary time dedicated comparing and contrasting the machine guns of WWII.

Now they show Pawn Stars.

You need to get out more.

largedon: That explains why our Roku kept saying there was a connection problem. I thought it wasn't connecting to the house wifi. Was getting pissed as it worked fine just a few hours ago.

/On a side note, has anybody gotten rid of cable and gone completely with a Roku or similar device. Trying to convince the wife to do it and hopefully save some money. She's not sold on it though.


Got rid of cable 4 years ago...never going back! Started on Roku...now have Sony blu-ray with Netflix and other channels.

I was going to say how absurd it is that my Amazon Prime is working, but my Netflix is down, all due to Amazon's cloud service.
