    Another day, another shelf registration filing

    And after Level 3 spent $14M in CAPEX costs in 2010 Q4 in order to accommodate Netflix, too! :-)


    Here's how the saga is playing out:

    <Netflix expects to post a 2012 loss, the company disclosed in an SEC filing Monday afternoon. . . .

    The revelation was in an S-3 shelf registration filing relating to a $200 million stock offering . . . .

    . . .

    Netflix had previously said that it expected several quarters of losses starting in Q1, as domestic profits won’t be high enough to cover expected losses from expansion into international markets. But the disclosure in the S-3 is more severe.>

    Read the rest of Eric Savitz's info so you'll know what to expect of Netflix throughout next year:

    update-netflix-sees-2012-loss/


    Last November, a Bloomberg report quoted Level 3 as saying that "it will DOUBLE its storage capacity to help accommodate the new contract" (caps mine).

    How much profit will Level 3 and Limelight gain now from their respective investments to obtain Netflix's business at CUT-RATE prices?

    Now aren't you glad Akamai is not in the business of giving away the farm? Netflix is still one of Akamai’s customers, but Akamai didn't slash its pricing or go into debt to accommodate Netflix.

    • >>Just at the interfaces so if Javascript is running a Flash process, maybe, but the Flash wouldn't depend on Javascript.<<

      I wasn't thinking of a dependency, just an inadvertent juncture, like bumping into an acquaintance at a cafeteria. Maybe that kind of thing doesn't happen.

      >>Just looked . . . yes they have branched out considerably since I worked there.<<

      If you were back at SAIC now, in which area would you choose to work?

      Have you noticed that Google seems to be floating new 'Search' trial balloons . . . or something? Or don't you use Search much? Sometimes my search page looks pretty much as it used to look, and other times it's 1,000% dysfunctional so that I can't specify a timeframe or choose between 'Sorted by relevance' and 'Sorted by date', and cannot choose to view 100 results on a page instead of Google's default 10. And ALWAYS, if I search for something on the Web and then click on 'News', Google diverts me to its default news page, deletes my items from my search box, and I have to retype them. Google likewise deletes my search terms from the box if I search the News and then switch to searching the Web.

      How can Google alienate its Search users without losing its advertisers' potential customers and hence lose its advertisers themselves?! If you think no alienation is taking place, take a look at this hot geyser of opinions about it:

    • >>I don't know anything about various agreements between companies, but don't some processes just bump into other processes and interact, like compatible — or incompatible — drugs?<<

      Just at the interfaces so if Javascript is running a Flash process, maybe, but the Flash wouldn't depend on Javascript.

      >>SAIC has made itself a citadel. Have you looked at its home page lately?<<

      Just looked . . . yes they have branched out considerably since I worked there.

    • >>Could be but I sort of doubt it. Unlikely Adobe would want their Flash to depend on Javascript.<<

      I don't know anything about various agreements between companies, but don't some processes just bump into other processes and interact, like compatible — or incompatible — drugs?

      >>Why would that not be just part of the Philippine bum seminar connection? <<

      Is there a reason the Philippine bum seminar would've been isolated from the Waco focus? Back when I was researching the Murrah Federal Building's attack minutely, there was very much linkage with the Philippine bum seminar and, I'm pretty sure, with OBL himself, maybe something about a safe house there in the Philippines?

      >>Pretty good, they're up recently, that could be why. I thought it strange a few years back that that they were getting into logistics (they're usually more science oriented) but it looks like it's paying off.<<

      SAIC has made itself a citadel. Have you looked at its home page lately?

    • >> . . . in case somehow those Flash-enabled pop behinds rely on JavaScript.<<

      Could be but I sort of doubt it. Unlikely Adobe would want their Flash to depend on Javascript.

      >>Did you see this near the top (2nd paragraph) of that 'beyond Elohim City' page? . . .<<

      Why would that not be just part of the Philippine bum seminar connection?

      >>On a different defense front, SAIC won a $1 billion contract. It spans five years, but is not shared with any other company.<<

      Pretty good, they're up recently, that could be why. I thought it strange a few years back that that they were getting into logistics (they're usually more science oriented) but it looks like it's paying off.

    • >>I think it's pop behinds and regular site ads using Flash some of which get caught in a loop trying to do something. In Activity Monitor I'll see 'Flash Player (Safari Internet plug-in)' stuck at the top. I use the 'Quit Process' button to stop it.<<

      Oh. I only occasionally get a pop behind, but regularly get bogged down by JavaScript, or so I've thought. The next time I get bogged down, I'll see if my Activity Monitor blames Flash, in case somehow those Flash-enabled pop behinds rely on JavaScript.

      >>OK I'll try it here:<<

      Finally! Success!

      >>No [not as a diversionary tactic] as revenge. McV was not a Mussy or he would have said so and bragged on his jihad attack (that's their MO). He said it was for W. He served in Iq so calls to there could be to people he knew.<<

      Did you see this near the top (2nd paragraph) of that 'beyond Elohim City' page? Not realizing a possible connection, I had suggested you begin quite a ways down from this:

      <Although the defense has no direct evidence linking Suspect I [McV] with Iraq, there is evidence indicating an indirect connection between Suspect I and Iraq through the militant Posse Comitatus group in Kansas. Suspect I made two telephone calls to members of Posse Comitatus in Kansas: David Oliphant and Buddy Snead (who also is married to a Filipina). Sources within the Central Intelligence Agency have informed a defense source that two members of the Posse Comitatus from Kansas traveled to New York City and made contact with an Iraqi diplomat either immediately before the Persian Gulf conflict with Iraq or immediately after. In addition, the defense has recent information that someone made a telephone call from Suspect II residence to a Member of the Order. D.E. 2482 at 22.>

      On a different defense front, SAIC won a $1 billion contract. It spans five years, but is not shared with any other company.

      MarketWatch alert says the Dow is up triple digits at the open. In my entire list, which includes the banking/brokerage sector, only RIMM and NFLX are down.

    • >>What is Flash doing that makes it slow your computer, and how do you kill the process? . . .<<

      I think it's pop behinds and regular site ads using Flash some of which get caught in a loop trying to do something. In Activity Monitor I'll see 'Flash Player (Safari Internet plug-in)' stuck at the top. I use the 'Quit Process' button to stop it.

      >> . . . oohaY didn't like your language about the Philippine playboys. . . .<<

      OK I'll try it here:

      >>[the event took place exactly two years after W] As a diversionary tactic? <<

      No as revenge. McV was not a Mussy or he would have said so and bragged on his jihad attack (that's their MO). He said it was for W. He served in Iq so calls to there could be to people he knew.

    • >>I just kill the Flash process. I don't have many problems with Javascript.<<

      What is Flash doing that makes it slow your computer, and how do you kill the process? I'm wondering if it's because it doesn't get along well with your OS. My OS doesn't play well at all with JavaScript, but the nanosecond I uncheck it, my computer is fast again. Weird.

      I hate to have to tell you this, but once again oohaY didn't like your language about the Philippine playboys. If you need your memory refreshed — because I quoted at length in it — this (link below) is the post to which you've been trying to reply. I wonder if there's some bad crumb in that thread. Do you want to try writing your comments via THIS (Flash) post instead?

      I just kill the Flash process. I don't have many problems with Javascript.

      >>Yikes just a year ago, would allow a hacker to take over your computer. Yeah, good thing they're putting it down. I know it crashed a lot on me (and it still occasionally slows my machine to a crawl, according to activity monitor).<<

      Yes, I didn't remember that at all, but came across it in one of my posts when I was searching the site for a post with Steve's Flash letter in it.

      The next time your computer slows to a crawl, try UNchecking 'Enable JavaScript'. Time and again a website slows my computer so badly that it seems to be moving backward instead of forward. The URL in the address bar vibrates, seems to alternate between progressing and regressing. I can't do anything on that page until the agony stops. BUT . . . the NANOSECOND I open Prefs and uncheck JavaScript, the URL stops its dance and the page is open. Please, please try it and let me know if that solves your crawl problem.

      Somewhere I read that that slowness in opening a page is due to a zillion cookies latching on to your breadcrumb trail . . . the slower the page, the more cookies are nibbling on YOUR trail.

      That reminds me of a problem grabbing headlines recently, so I'll post that warning next.

    • >>I don't know about the rollover problem, but just take a quick look at this October 2010 Flash security bulletin in which Adobe said the vulnerability was critical and categorized the update as critical.<<

      Yikes just a year ago, would allow a hacker to take over your computer. Yeah, good thing they're putting it down. I know it crashed a lot on me (and it still occasionally slows my machine to a crawl, according to activity monitor).
