Superlatives of the year, Day 6: The most useful new website I visited this year – instantwatcher.com

December 27, 2012

Over this past year, between a trip abroad, moving, starting a new job, and general busyness, this simple little website helped me to keep track of things in my Netflix queue when I didn’t have the time to visit Netflix every day. The most useful function for me was the “New” tab, which listed every new title that was added to Netflix Instant on a given day. Since Netflix itself doesn’t have this function, instantwatcher was easy to visit every night and quickly search through the new titles added so that I never felt behind on adding Netflix Instant titles. The website even has an “Upcoming” tab where they list titles that are reported to be coming soon to Netflix Instant. Every now and again the upcoming movies don’t end up coming through as planned, but the website is helpful in many ways if you are a Netflix Instant user!

Throughout this past season, Seattle Mariner pitchers threw two no-hitters! Since the Mariners are my favorite sports team and I don’t care about football, the Olympics, or the NBA, these great baseball moments take the cake for the year.

I am not a photographer, but at work I do take lots of neat photographs using optical or electron microscopes. I think this is the prettiest photo that I took this year.
