Not sure if anybody will care or not but, if you or someone you know has an old Pentium 4 machine (I don't know about AMD) and you would like to watch Hulu or other streaming video, there appears to be a fix for the jumpy picture.

Download a browser called K-Meleon, install Shockwave Player from Adobe, then go to Hulu.com and it will prompt you to install Flash Player.
After that, shut K-Meleon down, restart it, and Hulu like a mofo.

Well, it's at least a lot smoother than IE or regular Firefox.
(Yes, I have a lot of free time)

P4 3.0GHz w/HT

Windows XP SP3 and Ubuntu 12.04
(yeah, it's the shiz)

Thanks Jiggy. Will try this out. Have a couple of old machines here that do exactly what you've described.

Just haven't had a lot to say lately. I wake up, go to work, come home, go to bed. Rinse and repeat.

I'm leaving for the Philippines tomorrow morning though so, I'll have something to post about from there, I'm sure.

Where are you going Jiggy?

LONGSHOT - but I may move there with the family for a few months. I talked to my boss, and it may make sense some time next year to help 'run' the SEA branch for a little while.

That would probably satisfy my need to live internationally at least once in life.
