Isn't this covered by NAFTA?

I want to buy a NetFlix gift certificate for my parents. They live in the U.S. I live in Canada. The online order form (including credit card info) can't handle my non-US address. Furthermore, the customer service number isn't accessible from Canada. Any suggestions, ranging from alternative access method to alternative DVD by mail service providers? [more inside]

Jumpy DVDs

It's happened again tonight. We rent a DVD from National Chain Video, and right in the middle of the movie we get a 10 minute period of jittery video, and then a bit later the picture inexplicably jumps ahead in the story. We're left wondering what we missed.

Are we the only ones wondering secretly if this whole DVD thing is ready for prime time? DVDs I've bought new, no problem. But can a rental DVD hold up to the casual abuse of multiple rentals, and still play? I don't think it's the DVD player, we're on our third, and the problem has been consistent. Our current player is a Toshiba combination VCR/DVD player, about 2.5 years old. Should we upgrade? Or is this always going to be a problem with rental DVDs? And how does Vanilla Sky end, anyway? We never found out. Grrrr.
