    This week, for the heck of it, I included the NFL Week 4 Custom Schedule for San Diego. I prepare that San Diego schedule anyway - for some local Sports Bars and myself.

    Actually, that's what got me started on this schedule business a few years ago - I walked into a Sports Bar and saw my schedule tacked on the wall behind the bar. My ego doubled in size immediately. But as my wife is quick to point out, I have yet to make my first dime on this endeavor. It is truly a labor of love.

    Anyway, I am dazzled to see the number of San Diego schedules that have been downloaded. Are there that many local folks interested in a local schedule?

    I am not interested in publishing 210 DMA-Specific weekly schedules. But should I be considering providing a New York, Los Angeles and Chicago schedule?

    I have a difficult time trying to read the tea leaves: Two weeks ago, I posted a Hawaii/Alaska schedule -- and it was downloaded only 3 times.

    Schedule Rocks and helps me setup my guide in seconds. I can't imagine an area specific schedule would be needed for each DMA. Nor can I see that at this point that people who have been using your schedule in the top 3 markets couldn't figured it out using the timezone instead and customizing themselves. Just my $0.02.

    Your weekly schedules are always printed and on my coffee table every week. I also email copies to a number of friends. I figured that would use less bandwidth from your server. I could send them a direct download link instead.

    Thanks for doing this every week.

    ttubbiola,
    The schedules are stored here on the DBSTalk server; it's availability is much better than any personal server.

    As a thought, you might send your friends a link to this thread or even just a link to this Forum. The reason: there is a wealth of information provided by DBSTalk; your friends might discover a whole new world of interesting resources. New members and more traffic helps keep DBSTalk successful!
