  1. I love your site. My wife and I just recently joined Netflix after finally getting fed up with blockbuster. We love it so far. I think blockbuster is headed for a downfall. Their list of disgruntled customers is growing.

    I will add your site to roll. Especially since you're a fellow tarheel. :)
