Netflix has been working for a long time on a couple of my systems using the wine solution.
AND get this crazy folks
linux, virtualbox, old windows license = also working, for an even longer time - which is just as much cheating as wine, but come on, this isn't hard.
I have even had netflix working on an old blackberry running BBOS6 - though technically that was just a stream from a linux host system I could still control it with the blackberry.
The point is, what the hey hey?
*I suppose since I'm in Canada I should point out that my netflix isn't HD, perhaps that's the issue for people, these solutions probably break at HD workloads.
Are we really wasting time on this question?
This is the: ' I need 3 highlighters in different colours in order to study crap ', delay, delay, delay, because the OP has no clue what to do. The perfect setup isn't going to suddenly make you 100x more productive. Besides it's actually easier to adjust your setup after you done some work. Once you know what you are doing you optimize, rather than some kinda weird guess at future needs without any idea how it'll actually work.
The truth is: if the OP is spending this amount of effort and time in trying to resolve how to setup his frigging display at his new job, then the OP probably has no idea what they are doing.
It would be an interesting approach to education if you could tie aggregate knowledge gain of the students to rating of the school/educator and create a market for students with UnTapped Potential. With all this rhetoric of kids being out greatest resource why not treat them as resources. Allow those able to extract the most gain from kids have access and cut off access for those that fail to exploit the kids potential to the fullest.
Of course that's just a thought experiment, again, what is being done in Virginia is not in my mind meant to make things better for the kids, only the administrators.
The school system has decided to change how those scores are calculated based upon the race of the students. So that now all those schools that were lower performing can use the lower standards for the black students to bring up their scores.
In one sense I could almost see schools competing for black enrollment so that their score goes up, but that is about the only positive thing about this law. And not likely to happen.
The reality is that instead of using those metrics to identify schools that are failing their students and local community, so that funding or corrective action can be taken, the system has decided to skew the numbers to bury the problem. I'm pretty sure based upon recent events it's clear that skewing numbers to make things look better leads to a lot of wishful thinking but nothing concrete. To actually address the problems is harder work, and potentially more embarassing to the administrators than it is to blame the kids. Never mind how incredibly ignorant and insulting their approach is.
Again, it's about the administrators, not about the kids.
There was a plenty of warning of the scale and scope of this storm before the Bounty left port. This wasn't a case of it being caught unprepared in harbour with a hurricane bearing down on it trying to get to sea. This captain made a decision to put this ship into incredible danger. A ship which is 400 years out of date in technology and used as a school ship to teach sailing.
This was not the right decision.
YOU have just got your 7th grade exercise in creative writing posted to a news site read by people who actually don't enjoy having their eyeballs bleed. YOU giggle as the tags and cries of despair come pouring in across the interwebs. But then something happens when YOU see YOUR cackling face reflected in the nearby plastic cover of YOUR David Hasslehoff poster. David's honest face and oh so tight leather pants make YOU realize that this is not what The Hoff would do.
YOU become ashamed of YOURself and take YOUR soul destroying ass to a short pier where YOU plan on taking a long walk. YOU will do this because YOU know that it is the only way YOU can find absolution from this horror that YOU have perpetuated upon this world. Also YOU know that YOU will never have the respect of YOUR friends and coworkers until YOU have taken this corrective action.

If the kid is going to hit the letter 'W' 12 times in a row, they don't need to see it actually show up on screen or paper, that's not the point, the point is to establish the muscle memory. Make sure the kids have the finger movements down in drill before you ever sit them at a powered computer. Just walk around the class and make sure the kids are hitting the right key as you call it out.
