End of unrequested advice,
If this is in response to my quip about the "sleeping tech" responsible for the SD/HD switch the other day for the FOX football game, it certainly wasn't an attack on anyone, merely a tongue-in-cheek remark based on a facetious image we sometimes have of the tech in charge of TV broadcasts, our Internet connection or our phone lines snoozing in the control room while we, the customers, shake our fists at the technology that isn't working right. (Take note of the humorous smiley face in that post!
Actually, it was aimed at the network since someone mentioned that they thought this feed was completely under the network's control, not the local station.
Anyway, if anyone's feelings were bruised, my apologies! Believe me, as an Information Technology Director, I know what goes on with technology behind the curtain!
(BTW, does a year on here constitute a newbie?
