Thursday may be a non-event.

D12 in Q2 has been stated a zillion times.


And now it is Q2. At the very least they will confirm that guidance, which they couldn't do if they knew of any significant issue with the bird.

I would be willing to bet a Genuine Internet Bazegabuck* they'll go further than that tho.



*Actual cash value of Genuine Internet Bazegabuck is $.00001 if presented in person at our home office in Astana, Kazakhstan, during our regular office hours, which are 1:00pm to 1:10pm, every April 1st ocurring in a leap year.

I don't know anything about rocket science, telemetries, or even the FCC application process, but I know this ..... the problems of D12 are likely connected to the coming end of the world in December, 2012. Those Mayans are never wrong. And really, D(December) 12(2012). It's so obvious.

Hopefully we'll get at least 2 years of extra HD before we're all vaporized.

If the mayans were so smart how come they arent around anymore ?


Maybe they did not want to stick around to be vaporized, and moved on to a better place. Too bad we are stuck.

Consider yourself lucky. It is my nap time. Won't even get to experience the once in an "Earth Time" event.

How can they of missed the weather that killed them off?

Any ways other have said dates like 2000 / 2001

2019, 2038 are also ones.

and Don't forget about the big question with if we stated on 0000 or 0001 and even them there may be 5 years lag time as well.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

While the Mayan calendar is a very interesting one, there are actually more than the one reference in Mayan sites. Only one of the calendars was not continued past 12/21/2112, the others go millennium beyond 2112.

It also makes for a good movie story--even if the execution isn't so great.

Anyway, let's drop that sidebar and go :backtotop.

Thanks,
Tom

Excellent! Check out that orbital period - almost 10 minutes longer than a sidereal day. Drift underway! :up:

Let's see... roughly 5 days from 76 to 87 (11 degrees) and 16 degrees to go... I'd say another week, which would fit exactly into Sixto's "two week" drift time prediction.

Smoking along at about 2.5 degrees per day. They are not messing around in the slow lane.

So, with D12 and E14 both drifting to position... it's a race to see who gets on service first!

(I have my bets on D12 since at last report, E14 has further to drift)
