Re: Netflix - shipping my DVD from across the country?

It happened once, when we got a pretty rare movie. There simply weren't any copies nearby. The reason I think they don't skip over that movie to the next available one is because it would mean they'd have to keep skipping it forever if it was a rare movie that no one near your distribution center ever rents. Whether you get it now or a year from now it would still have to come from far away, so might as well do it now. With more popular movies, I'm not sure why.
Time present and time past
are both perhaps present in time future.
And time future contained in time past.
