    IE8 and HULU

    So I was bored at home yesterday and my wife's computer had IE7 so I
    thought to myself "self, give IE8 a go". So I did.

    After it was installed I decided to watch "Bones" on hulu.com. Wow....the
    picture was jerkey big time. I thought it may be the buffer so I let it
    fill and continued to watch. Didn't help at all. Switched over to
    Firefox and it was as smooth as can be. I guess there is something to all
    this talk of IE8 being dog slow.

    Try switching IE8 over to compatibility mode for hulu. If it makes a
    difference it's because Microsoft finally did something mostly right and
    it now breaks websites. :P

    Didn't think about that. I'll give it a go....just for kicks.

    It that doesn't work. Just kick the computer with your left foot and
    then your right. If it still doesn't work send me a million dollars.
