    Did you ever actually try bumping "Basterds" or "Hurt Locker" down a few places and letting them rise back up to number one naturally, instead of just planting them there from day one?

    I've tried various things but not that. I don't think it would make a diff, but what the hey, I'm in an experimenting mood.

    The Princess and the Frog is at "very long wait" (not that I care; I'm kinda iffy whether I should just axe it off my list completely). It's at #8 now, and I'll leave it to rise naturally. See what happens.

    My top several movies are "Long waits" and I doubt I'll see any of them anytime soon.

    I'm not debating that, but there are still plenty of super old people who refuse to get computers, let alone the internet. I encounter them all the time. Nowhere did I say that all of the 40% were super old, just that a bunch of them probably are.

    If there's one thing I don't like about Netflix, it's that I can't categorize my Instant Queue. So when I want to watch something on my PS3, I have to scroll back and forth on the menu until I find it. "Queue" really doesn't even make sense for the Instant stuff, since you can watch any of it whenever you want.

    Okay, that just answered my question. I came in here to gripe about the fact that The Blind Side wasn't available on Netflix till April (:rolleyes:), yet I got it at Best Buy on Tuesday.

    Don't judge- somebody has to help Sandy pay her divorce lawyer and I help out my neighbors. :rommie:

    Netflix and Redbox should join forces.

    If you really cared about her you'd buy a copy of All About Steve too. :shifty:

    Here's a shocker -- there are a lot of people, who aren't old, who don't have cell phones or even televisions. And no, I'm not talking the Amish. And I won't comment further on your lack of life experience.


    Anyway, the upcoming Post Office restructuring is going to impact Netflix:

    Netflix is the big loser in Postal Service changes

    What do you mean categorize? You can order the movies online, just like the DVD queue.

    I know you can order them, but I'd like to be able to group them into categories/genres, so that if I want to watch a SciFi movie, I can pull up my SciFi folder, or if I want to watch a Comedy, I can pull up my Comedy folder. Basically, I have a ton of shit on my Instant Queue, and I don't want to have to browse through all of it to figure out which movie I want to watch.

    Oh, I see. That does make sense. Can you do that for the normal DVD queue? I've never looked.

    That would be very cool actually, that's gotta be a pretty easy fix. I'm surprised they haven't work it in yet.

    I know, it seems really easy! I want to tell someone at Netflix, but I can't figure out how.

    There's not even a search function on the PS3. Very annoying.
