Thanks. I'm glad it wasn't blindingly obvious.

Ok, got more information. I thought it was a computer class, but it was actually a math class. Also, the reason he couldn't take the test early was because he couldn't pass it, because they haven't covered the material yet. I know it sounds like a made up excuse, but all they have learned has been building up to the last few final lessons. Math builds on itself, and the test is mostly over the final material, since it will incorporate the material learned previously. The professor wasn't just being a jerk for the sake of being a jerk. They actually feel bad for him, or so they said. He was just so upset when he spoke to them yesterday that he didn't understand all the facts.

We aren't any happier about the situation, but it is too late to do anything about it now. He had to let the company know today if he could work something out. We have faith that something else, maybe closer to us, will come along. I am resolved that he will live a long way from us, but over 3,000 miles was stretching it. (Now watch, he will get something in Japan or somewhere like that)
I'm glad it is more understandable now, but still.. it must be so hard to have to miss the interview.

Heh, not these problems.



Now for a completely unrelated rant: So today I purchased a Roku box so I could stream some Internet media to my TV. Upon returned home I plugged it in and got it all set up. Everything seemed to be working fine... That is until I tried the Blip.TV app. The second I typed a space into the search field it crashed! Tried again, another crash. So I go onto the Roku support forums, where upon I discover that this problem is not only known... It's been known for 2010! In all that time has been no attempt by either Roku or Blip to remedy this situation. This is a big problem for me since most of the media I wanted to watch was on Blip, and with the way the app was designed it's virtually impossible to find that media without searching. Sure I also wanted something that could play Amazon Prime videos without the fan noise I get from my PS3, but that wasn't as essential. I'm seriously considering taking the whole thing back to the store and asking for a refund.

Oh, and I've already tried Twonky Beam. It doesn't seem to work with Blip right now.

So I just tried Blip on my roku to see what happens, and it SEEMS to be okay. I didn't know what to search for, so I just searched on "new " and got a list of results. Want me to try something specific? (My roku isn't latest generation, it's the LT, but I've had no problems with it. It's one of my favorite things since I don't have cable -- just netflix and amazon prime.)

I just tried typing "new " and it crashed. It doesn't seem to matter what letters I put it, but the minute I try to add a space it sends me back to the home screen.

I've also noticed that the doesn't show ever channel either. Like I type "nostalgia" to get the nostalgia critic, but get no results.

Mine is Roku HD (model 2500R).

Ha! Yep, the space crashes mine too. Any way you can find your result with just the first word, then select from the list that comes up?

Based on my experience with the actual site, most of them SHOULD come up with a single word... but they're not. In fact even one word titles aren't coming up. The app seems to only be able to access a tiny portion of the Blip library. Very frustrating!

Yes, it seems to be messed up. I deleted it. Sorry it doesn't work for you.

If you got a good deal on the roku, it really is a great way to watch amazon videos, though. Even when I just want to rent a video I usually do it from amazon and watch it through my roku. And of course the prime videos are free.

Well I think I figured out why content isn't showing up: apparently it has to be independently approved for Roku devices.

Ah. So it may not work for you anyway, even without the bugs, if you can't watch what you want.

Yeah... I wish Roku had made these limitations clear on their website's list of apps. You shouldn't have to dig through a support forum just to figure this stuff out.

I'm a little reluctant to swap out for an AppleTV, given its high price for a relatively limited set of features, but AirPlay may be my only option.

Okay, so I ultimately did return the Roku to the store this morning. Though as it turns out that I was never actually charged for the device in the first place. The cashier apparently suspended the transaction while I was signing up for a discount debit card Thingamabob and never resumed it.
