I enjoyed the latest Star Trek movie... :) but I don't want to get
into an argument; everyone is entitled to enjoy or hate whichever
movies he/she wants. I, personally, thought White Men Can't Jump was
awful. Apparently I was in the minority there too.

We just got Netflix streaming in Canada. I am eager to sign up, but my
free time is so limited I can't make much use of the free month offer.
At least I want to see what the quality is like. Does it look good? Is
it worth the extra bandwidth to stream in HD? (my cap is 60 GB, which
I usually don't go near, but I do use a reasonable chunk for backups
and other "routine" stuff)
To bring this back on topic... I want Netflix streaming in a Myth plugin! ;-)
(my machine isn't powerful enough to do full-screen [1920x1080] flash
:( ... I may have to bite the bullet and update the firmware on my
PS3.... bye-bye Linux I rarely use anyway...)
