I don't disagree that we are all in a lot of databases, but that isn't a reason to cease one's efforts to stay out of as many as possible. To me it is still a tether, whether they contact me or not....

Yes, I'm completely OTA, given the channel selection we have in North Texas and my aversion to paying for TV. But I actually did see something with potential there. While the iView/Homeworx and...
