Comment Re:their streaming selection is somewhat skimpy... (Score 1) 190

I stream it on the 360 and I've gotten HD. The OP is right in that the selection is skimpy, but I'm on the $9 a month plan so I'm not complaining. I don't have cable or anything so I usually just throw a random movie on that I've never seen. I hope that they start porting more and more movies over. I rarely even use the dvd option of netflix.

Submission + - Donate Some Time To Help a Charity

dangerz writes: "This holiday season is launching its first Feed A Need project. Instead of asking for monetary donations, they're asking people to donate a few hours of their skills & energy. If you are a programmer, designer, artist, lawyer, geology professor, bacon cooker, or anyone else with a few hours to spend for a good cause please consider participating in this year's Feed a Need charity drive.

By working for at least 2 hours on a Feed A Need charity project before the deadline on February 14th, 2009, you're eligible for some great prizes from companies such as Wired, Destructoid, the EFF,, xkcd, ars technica and more."
