Submission + - Why can't Netflix support Linux? 2

sheehaje writes: "I've been trying for almost 2 years to find a way to get Netflix to run on Linux. Avoiding the usual "Just run it on XP under VirtualBox" workarounds, I have even tried to write my own Silverlight wrap arounds. It hasn't worked, mainly because I am substandard coder. But I know there are a lot that are up to the challenge. Why doesn't Linux have support for Netflix instant streaming yet? Netflix isn't worth the hack? Netflix doesn't exactly want to look at the issue; if you search for "linux" in their knowledge base, it does not even show a get well sympathy message. Where have all the rebels gone?"

Submission + - Cut and Paste Child Porn (

sheehaje writes: "A Gallupville, NY man has been sentenced to 78 months in prison after pleading guilty to possessing child pornography in February. The images, which Hotaling altered, contained photos of the heads of six underaged girls digitally pasted onto adult women performing sex acts. The images of the adults were found using the Internet, and the photos from which Hotaling cropped the young girls' faces were obtained from digital cameras and computers, including the computer of one of the girls' families that Hotaling was repairing at the time.... Add a new sterotype to the computer repair technician: creepy."
