    Not up and running yet because of equipment issues? I'm guessing its not a contract issue since its provided for free.

    I've never heard of the term "eating crow" until today.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eating_crow <----in case anyone is wondering.

    Now I know, and knowing is half the battle. Thanks TR!

    While you might be a Crow, I think you are safe from being eaten as a crow. :)

    Nor will you need to be eating crow yourself as your posts have not been part of the naysayer conspiracy. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    This reads as if a Brit were writing/saying it, so the new HD must be BBC America HD. I was really hoping for DIY HD. I don't think I've ever tuned to BBC America.

    Actually, I was reading into it the other way. He was talking about people dying --- dead people --- The Walking Dead --- AMC-HD. Season 2 of The Walking Dead starts Oct 16th, so getting AMC HD before then would make lot of people happy I bet.

    I only talked about dead people because of an earlier comment. :)

    This is all so funny. Especially when you know the answer. But the twists are quite entertaining.

    Indeed. But I would be quite dissapointed if the game ends in knowing it only 1 or 2 days before Sixto posts his scans.... It wouldn't be fun at all to play the next game then. ;)

    I'm gonna add a log to the fire...

    Tom mentioned the channel release would be "Mono". Now, one could interpret that as being the medical condition. Mono is colloquially called "The Kissing Disease". It takes two to kiss (don't argue, just follow)

    Could there actually be two channels? BBC and AMC?

    All depends on when I'm allowed to tell. Might even be when Sixto posts. Sorry.

    Cheers,

    I'm just hoping that the hurricane doesn't knock the dish off the roof.

    Wife wasn't amused when I mentioned that was my only worry come Sunday.

    True story. :)
