I took my XM to work today. Amazingly it works in the skyscraper I work in 24 stories in the sky! My office does not have windows and everything is running great.

Well almost.

At approxamately 12:17 many of the stations went dead. About 30 second after they went out a recording is now playing saying

"This channel is experiancing technical dificulties, please stand by. We are working on the problem."

I will report back when things are online.
