    Sidebar: Has anyone else been getting a popup, when you naviigate away from IAB saying something like "viruses detected on your computer" "click OK or cancel... Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page." etc? I saw a comment yesterday regarding this in one of the forums. Had it happen twice tonite... here and in the Rhiana forum. What`s up with that IAB?

    That was funny. The Onionis the best of what net entertainment has to offer.

    @ peter.., I saw the same thing commented on yesterday here. I saw a comment in one of the where someone said they got a virus from a download on IAB. Opie retorted that IAB does not pass on viruses.

    I work for Hollywood Video. Just representin in case you forgot about us little guys (and gals).
    Where in Netflix can you get candy and soda, eh? I know it`s just a little thing but the movie store experience is still cool...
    (In other words, please come rent from me, so I can keep my job)

    They left out what used to happen to me when I would ask if they had any Ingmar Bergman films at Blockbuster. They`d always answer, "No sorry we don`t have any movies with Ingrid Bergman."

    Facepalm!

    Long live Netflix! Please don`t ever change!

    I can do without paying $5 for a $2 candy bar and $6.50 for a $2 can of soda, thanks.

    I still go to Blockbuster. I guess I could use LoveFilm (the UK equivalent), but Blockbuster is there when I need it, and I don`t have to wait for any movies to be delivered.

    That was funny, since Blockbuster has officially banned me--SUCK IT! Ok, but am I right or am I right, didn`t they say they were getting rid of late fees? Because when I refused to pay the $100 bill they went crazy.

    That`s why I love the public library system! Get it for free for a whole week. Late fees are (maybe) a dime. Granted, they don`t have the newest releases readily available. We just got Wall-E this weekend after being on the waiting list for 2 months.
