    Yep, been just re-using the 3rd party link with the countdown in reverse since the launch.

    Before the launch, it was T-Minus followed by a positive number. Now post#1 shows a negative number, which is days after the launch.

    So, the inverted clock explains the apparent lack of satellite movement. How could it move? It was obviously launched upside down, and is now at the bottom of (where was it launched--Russia?) some coal mine, and it can't be budged.

    Bummer. We'll have to get terrestrial antennas, I guess.

    I'd add WYIN HD to your list for our NW IN friends (and the rest of us NW of the loop who can't get a good OTA signal - sure wish WTTW and WYCC didn't block the WYIN proposals to relocate their transmitter to Sears or Hancock).

    I disagree! I think post number 2 is highly relevant, maybe even more so than post #1. I say anybody who disagrees is an unscientific, dish-loving troll, who thinks the sky is falling. :D

    Umm, I am no rocket scientist, but does that mean it's moving? (The irony of this "rocket scientist" pun can go in many different directions. Please choose the direction that best fits for your situation)

    Movin' On Up (The Jefferson's Theme Song)

    Well we're movin on up,
    To the east side.
    To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
    Movin on up
    To the east side.
    We finally got a piece of the pie.

    Fish don't fry in the kitchen;
    Beans don't burn on the grill.
    Took a whole lotta tryin'
    Just to get up that hill.
    Now we're up in the big leagues
    Gettin' our turn at bat.
    As long as we live, it's you and me baby
    There ain't nothin wrong with that.

    Well we're movin on up,
    To the east side.
    To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
    Movin on up
    To the east side.
    We finally got a piece of the pie.
