Family means being yourself and knowing that, beyond all the minor squabbles, at the end of the day you can still feel completely at home in the arms of the one you love.

@Tino: Unions are, more times than not, the little guy's only protection. That's not always the case, but it is a majority of the time. I'm pro-Union all the way. Also, You already have private options; UPS and FedEx. What's happening with the USPS has nothing to do with unions. People send letters more and more over the internet and less snail mail is being used (therefor less stamps are being purchased.) Also, online bill pay eliminates a lot of the bulk of the mail. Case and point: I was in a post office for the first time in years and years and that was only to get my passport photos taken and paperwork signed and sent off.
It would be a neat thing for maybe a small outside party using the wi-fi. Just something to fill those dead silences between conversations. Or better yet, lying in bed. If I couldn't sleep I could quietly watch a movie without disturbing my partner. It would have some good applications. But, they better not exclude us 1st gen iPod touch users.
March 2nd, 2010 - To add to the above: I tried 3 different formats (.jpg, .png, .gif and they all failed.) I also called in and reported the problem to Netflix customer service. They responded by saying that there was no notice of that feature being down or any website outages that would effect that feature. The rep also said that there are other people that were recently able to change their profile picture. He added that it may be a problem with the upload process or a formatting error on my end. He finished the conversation by saying that he would forward that report to the IT department to see if anything can be done about it. Whichever it is, I really hope it can get fixed.
March 2nd, 2010 - STILL NOT WORKING. "upload of [filename] failed." I chose a really large picture and it hung for about 10 seconds and said "unable to send picture." I chose another one and kept it under 150x150, made sure it was a photo that had a CC license that granted free use by anyone (public domain), didn't contain profanity, nudity, vulgar or obscene content, or any offensive content and it still failed. Finally, I tried a small picture that I created myself using MSpaint, still failed. I wonder if that 'email' that cust. service sent got lost.
