Gee I remeber when I had a great source, I wonder how OO7 is doing? I lost his e mail address in a HD crash, and by that time he had moved on to a better job. :) if you read this hows it going?

Those were the days! Leaks, attemding E6 launch, and signing the banner right after Charlie. Irritating the mods with E is better than D! E went and buys D trashing my fun:( Talking to laurie farkus on DNN and having Mike Dugan calling my house thanking me for a tech suggestion were fablous moments too. This resuklted in a new channel with few subs going up. Mine and Metros big secret:D

Of course some tried to leak BOGUS info to make me look bad, and some good info got delayed for unknown reasons, Dan liked to pounce on that.

It was FUN, but stressful. Now I am a Mod for obesity help.com and help others considering weight loss surgery. This is less fun but much more rewarding.

Hey someone please post a link back to here here at the other place on that remember when thread. they might like my recollections...

Funiest thing I ever saw there. Harry D saying Dans head was so big he must of had his doors altered to make the tops larger so he could walk thru....

Harry how you doing? Keep the weight off?

Their are only a small hand full of good basic channels that E* or D* do not already currently carry, NGC is one of the few that I have wanted E* to add, I hope this info is true.

I wished they would have put it on 119 and in the Top 100 package. I'd trade many channels in the Top 100 for this one assuming that this channel mostly shows wildlife shows and not the stupid animal videos like Animal Planet seems to show all the time.

They want to add it to the 150 package to get more customers to sub to that package and make it look more enticing.

Some people on Distretailer.com and DBSForums.com have also been saying this channel was going up on the same day that people on here have been saying.

It seems odd Dish will be adding a channel on a Friday. For the past 2 years now its been mostly Wednesdays.

Well, I live in Arlington, TX and your tree is p*ssing me off. I give you permission to hack out the offending branches. ;)

The problem with people today can be narrowed to two things:
1) Nobody pays attention
2) Nobody takes responsibility
