Netflix does not work under Linux. It requires either their own video 
viewer or Silverlight. Neither run under Linux. There are currently no 
options to get it to work either. There is *some* support for 
Silverlight under mono but not enough.

I am not normally so black and white but I have spent considerable 
amount of time trying to make this work. I am now balder but not any 
closer to a solution.

Sometimes I wonder.  Were our faith able to stand upright and look around, would it be looking down at the mustard seed or standing in awe of the height and breadth of it.
