Boy you can sure see who the addicts are. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif We've all probably been trying to hit the site every five minutes since it went down. Got a MURC on my back. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Yeah, you know you are a MURC addict when you see the "....down for routine maintainance..." page about 100 times over the weekend, and think to yourself "this is anything but routine.." http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Seems to be much faster responding for me now, tho http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/biggrin.gif

That was a bad one. Dry mouth. The shakes. The sweats. Itching. Swelling. Inflamation. More itching. Flaking. Small children making comments on public transportation. You name it.

I'm feeling better, thank you. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

BTW Paul, you can still get STV feeds on BUD satellite ... or do you have the baby dish?

12th January 2001, 21:08
I suspect I have a baby dish. It's pretty small. No UPN. No STV. No WB. Lot's of premium channels. Really big bill every month. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif

What's BUD satellite?


12th January 2001, 21:19
... Big Ugly Dish (or more recently called Big Usefull Dish). C and Ku band. You can also get UPN in the clear with MPEG-2 DVB recievers. (Hey ... we're talking about general hardware here http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif).

That was a rough weekend indeed. Had to fill the time writing my game scripts for Star Trek Voyager:Elite Force.

And speaking of STV...my good ol fashion rabbit ears pick up the local UPN station, which brings me Voyager 6 nights a week, twice on Weds. And it's free. Nya nya.

The satellite feeds are free too, after you put out for the dish, LNBs, and receiver/decoder. One nice thing is you get the feeds ahead of their normal broadcast time. I used to get DS9 Saturday mornings, the week before. STV is only a day early.

An antenna. Hmmmm. Could be worth a try.

I live right under Twin Peaks, the two biggest hills in San Francisco. We're on a fairly big hill, but the damn things just tower above us. The city's big TV antenna is on top of one of those two hills. (At least, that's what I think it's for. Either that, or the city is attempting some high tech scheme to channel Timothy Leary, Jimi Hendrix and Jerry Garcia. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif ) I suspect reception might be an issue.
