In the last week or two, I've noticed I'm starting to get some shipments from Netflix in 1 day again. It's about 50/50 for the last two weeks. Definitely an improvement.

What's this Hastings BD thing? I haven't heard of it. Is it gohastings.com? Looks like a disc purchase place, rather than rental?
