Queue progress report

For the first time in two years, my Netflix queue has finally dropped below 200. It was at 500 at one time, which was the limit then. Now, with Profiles (sm), you can have as many as 1500 in your queue, with 500 under each of three profiles.

Technically, my Netflix queue is at 206, but seven of the titles are in the saved section, with "release date unknown." Everything in my Netflix queue is from the book 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. I have seen 743 of the titles in the book. If I have 199 in my Netflix queue, that leaves 59 which I must obtain from other sources, unless they become available from Netflix. I feel like I'm on the home stretch.

I'm working my way through the list chronologically. Right now, I'm in the Seventies. At a rate of 20 per month, I will be done in a year, if I succeed.

I still subscribe to Blockbuster Online, but I am not using them for this project, unless they have a title Netflix doesn't have.

  1. Just wondering if you'd be interested in bloging / podcasting about Matrixstream's cutting edge video on demand and IPTV Technology ( TV over broadband ). This is a technology that allows the consumer to receive a potential for unlimited VOD / IPTV content up to 1080P in H.264 codec over any broadband connection on a PC Player or set top box for TV ( IMX1020 1080P High definition STB - the world's first 1080P H.264 STB ) If you'd like to see pictures and video's of the this new STB you can go to www.matrixstream.com/presskit .
