But now we've discovered some incredibly non-PC holiday classics on Amazon video prime on Roku.

Dammit, Netflix. I understand that you're upset about being down, but you don't have to post a tweet every 5 minutes saying that you're not done yet and that you're very sorry for the outage.

Christmas Classics Vol 1. Pops right up on Roku. Stuff from 1930's. Cool

my company's systems (we heavily rely on AWS, ELB, and EBS) is still up.

but the ELBs are not showing active hosts (although they are sending traffic to all hosts as expected).

this seems like an ELB API issue -- that is, the API to the ELB is returning bullshiat -- not that anybody (but nexflix it seems) actually uses the API.

Thanks for posting this.  I was about the chew out my nephew for screwing up the Netflix settings on the TV.  He was the last one using it and tinkers with everything.

NF Canada is working but it's meh. I compared the two (thanks HSS) and the US one is amazingly better.

Are they going to remove the crappy B-movie copycats from streaming and put something other than standup and documentaries on there?

I've had some problems tonight.

Being that i am at my parents house, and they have no cable, and everyone went to bed at 10... I need netflix to work for another hour or so.

Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the VP is such a VIP, shouldn't we keep the PC on the QT? 'Cause if it leaks to the VC he could end up MIA, and then we'd all be put on KP.

Which one is the big ethnic slur with black faced shoeshine and Asian laundry? I was jaw droppingly shocked but kept trying to figure out the beef with the Dutch.

Perhaps they didn't anticipate the load caused by the sudden intense demand for Quincy reruns.

That explains why our Roku kept saying there was a connection problem. I thought it wasn't connecting to the house wifi. Was getting pissed as it worked fine just a few hours ago.

/On a side note, has anybody gotten rid of cable and gone completely with a Roku or similar device. Trying to convince the wife to do it and hopefully save some money. She's not sold on it though.

I was going to say how absurd it is that my Amazon Prime is working, but my Netflix is down, all due to Amazon's cloud service.
