Goal-oriented

This is sad. I've justed downgraded to 1-out, and the same week added a 500th movie to my queue. Since I'm goal-oriented regarding movies, I have to see them all, and at this rate, it will take 9.62 years. In that time, man will have walked on Mars, we'll all have flying cars, and Netflix will send movies to a chip in our brains.

    I feel your pain. I've made multiple lists that are "overflow queues". Switching to 1-at-a-time only seems to make your Disc queue fill up much faster.

    Luckily, you can wade through a good portion of them just by using Netflix Instant Watch, which is unlimited. You can stream the titles, and remove them from your queue, in the time that you're waiting for the next one to arrive in the mail. This will help ease the overload.

    That's what I plan to do. If I can work my way through the hundreds of movies in my Instant queue, I'll feel better about it.

    I hate to sound like a salesman :-), but having the Roku box has made a difference in our queue. I'm so flighty when it comes to movies that I will move one to the top of the queue but lose interest in it by the time it comes in the mail! I like being able to watch B-movies like "The Ramen Girl" on a whim.

    You are so right. The Roku rocks!
