Netflix Jocelyn: Hi Adam!
me: I pay for this service yet I can’t watch on my Linux laptop. Why?
Netflix Jocelyn: Oh no, so about the Linux, we have definitely been receiving a lot of feedback from customers with this program, and believe me, Netflix is considering adding Linux as a supported Netflix program. I would say just be a little patient a bit longer, and keep watching for Netflix to add it. I can go ahead and forward your concern for you as well.
me: Chrome OS is Linux and Netflix supports Chrome OS. So there is already support for Linux on a programmatic basis. So the excuse is thin to say the least.
me: Mac is Unix (a common derivative also used for Linux) so again, the foundation is there.
me: There is no valid excuse, the programs are written already.
me: It’s a matter of Netflix allowing something to happpen on a DRM side of things.
me: But please add my name to the list of annoyed paying customers.
Netflix Jocelyn: I totally understand,that the foundation is there, at the moment Netflix has not partnered with Linux, I will go ahead and add you to the list. Its a high demand on getting Linux for Netflix.
I know this is older, but I wanted to bookmark the article for future reference. This site is just the street from my house.

So I’m making my way through `$ vimtutor` because I feel like it’s time I think about letting go of emacs key bindings and the apps that such muscle memory keeps me bound to (TextMate). I’m not entirely new to vim but my vim-foo is limited and I’m certainly not proficient enough at it to make vim my full time editor.
Anyway, a few things I needed to figure out quick to make my stay in vim a little more comfortable was some basic setting to make it feel a bit more like home and mac the move from emacs-like editors a little less jarring. Line numbers, syntax coloring and mouse movements will certainly help.
So in my .vimrc file I added the following lines
That feels a little more like home. And don’t worry, I will never be dependent on the mouse, I just need it while I get used to moving around.

It’s true, you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. An old dear friend of mine passed away this week. It was sudden, unexpected. And it hurts. A lot.
In high school there was a small group of 5 that were inseparable — two girls and three boys. We took classes together, we studied together, we partied together… when one got kicked out of the house for teenage trouble making, the rest of us would take turns giving shelter. It was a teenage support group to help us all get through in one piece.
She was the strong one. The stable one. The one we all strived to be like.
In high school the teachers referred to her and I as soul mates, Frick and Frack, Tweedledee and Tweedledum… That made us laugh. We weren’t romantically involved. We used to fight like cats and dogs… brother and sister. But the teachers were right in a way, we were inseparable. All 5 of us were inseparable. Until after high school.
We all headed for college. The boys drifted one way and the girls drifted the other with always a, “Let’s get together for coffee soon,” or as the years rolled on, “Let’s make a play date for the kids.”
Fifteen or more years passed like that with little more then the odd chance encounter with the girls. The girls were tight still. The boys are still tight. The support group had done it’s job. We all grew up, too busy, family life, jobs… This shouldn’t happen between friends.
She was the strong one. The stable one. The one we all strived to be like.
And she’s gone. I hate this.
So many coffee dates come to naught and now they’ll never be.
So many “someday we’ll get together”, that someday we’ll never see.
We think we have forever so we never cherish here.
And now that you’re so far away I hate that you’re not near.
AM, AM, BC and WB is missing LP. Rest in peace. :,(
