I flew United, Milwaukee>Ohare>Austin for the Netroots Nation bloggers convention last July.

Landing, 2 bags out of 66 passengers were not on the carousel, mine and agnostic's, another raucous Dailykos poster. We were told they'd been mistakenly sent to Scranton, would be delivered to out hotel around midnight. Actually arrived 4:00 the next afternoon, with 2 pieces of tape, one from TSA, and another from Homeland Security. Missing, my hairbrush, and Ms. Agnostic's scarf.

As I connect the dots, when our dossiers were run, an alert HSA drone noticed empty datafields for our DNA. No longer empty.

Submission + - How to set up low-power digital TV station?

websta writes: "Question: With a next-to-zero budget, what would it take to broadcast low-power digital television? I understand the FCC takes applications for low-power digital TV stations at any time. Background: I have a background in web development, including streaming media, and over the past year, I started producing local television segments for a public access channel in our rural area. I'm using a Canon GL1 digital camcorder for capture, using Sony Vegas for editing and rendering to MPEG-2. To my surprise, these TV programs have gone over very well — mostly, I think, because the area is in dire need of more public information services. I am wondering about starting my own low-power television station. I've seen analog stations-on-a-rack on eBay for around $5k, but if digital TV is just MPEG-2 video over an RGB signal (just like a computer monitor??), could I just — more-or-less — hook up a TV antenna to my video card's output and be in business? Thank you for your help."

I've finally learned what "upward compatible" means. It means we get to keep all our old mistakes. -- Dennie van Tassel
