64-Bit Flash Player For Linux Finally In Alpha 172

Luchio writes "Finally, a little bit of respect from Adobe with this alpha release of the Adobe Flash Player 10 that was made available for all Linux 64-bit enthusiasts! As noted, 'this is a prerelease version,' so handle with care. Just remove any existing Flash player and extract the new .so file in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins (or /usr/lib/opera/plugins)."

My experience is that you must keep two copies of every paper you send for the rebate. That includes rebate application, receipt, UPC bar codes, etc. My experience is that about two out of every three times they will claim to have not received some part of the required papers within the proper time. At this point you call them up and get a name to send your first copy to. Let them know that you have a second copy to send to your local consumer complaint agency. This is a lot of trouble but it works. I have never had any one deny the rebate after that. Once they learn that you are serious about this they will give the money and go find some one easier to cheat.
