I've been able to get Seven via Foxtel cable forever (well, at least since January since I got it connected.) I used IQ to tape Underbelly the other night and it stopped half way through because, I assume, stupid Channel Nine started it late. Just a random complaint.

I read somewhere it was a regional thing. We don't have seven on the Foxtel up here in Brissy yet. I'm glad it's coming, if only so I don't have to thumb through two EPGs. But will we get all the digital channels? not much of an improvement if we don't, especially on 10.

Re: iQ. You've got to set the post recording setting to 10 minutes. It was killing me losing the last three or four minutes to every TV program. Especially the season finale to Life.

Just noticed Foxtel/Seven doesn't kick in for my TV until 2009. Something about new satellites.

I'm on satellite, not cable.

I could never work out why the Indians in the unit block across the road from my place kept cheering about 15 sec before i saw an Aussie fall. Now i know they were watching ch. 9, while im watching the foxtel ch. 9 'retransmition'.

You should listen to the ABC radio on the internet as well. Their delay will cause your "I could never work out" to graduate to total befuddlement. Chuck in the different delay from ABC radio on the radio, and the multiple differently delayed feeds will have you somewhere in the region of advanced KGB brainwashing techniques.

Edited excerpts from the book of Spanky - thanks be to Gideon at CricIndia.

PM Roebuck had a respectable season for Somerset in 1983. But it was what he got up to between times that mattered.

Roebuck was never your average county pro, he managed to touch everycricketer. The experience of having to "sleep with the same fellows, always sharing the same dressing room.

"God, how I hate [coming] out," he muses sardonically after a mere handful. "I poked around again. My partner Richards was probably straight."

At the nadir of his fortunes, the entry in It Never Rains is blank. Roebuck has decided that cricket is a "worthless existence", and that it is "time to admit defeat and to give myself something to have a go at". The next day, after talking to his favourite team-mates, he reasons that cricket is not the problem, and feels his "instincts aroused" again.

Extract:
Roebuck on opening the batting: As Rose and I sat in the warmth of the dressing room wondering how long we open this year. My first sustained experience as an opener was last year and it was only a partial success. I started opening partly because it secured my place in the Somerset team - there were no other people willing except some youngsters - and partly because there are hardly any openers in England and it was my only chance [cut for legal rasons].

Mind you, I'm not certain that deep down I want to come soon? Am I too excited or too fearful? I can remember a benefit game last year when, as I was walking out to bat, I heard a spectator say to his son, "Oh no." Because it was something I desperately wanted?

Shouldn't user adjustable delays be available on radio and internet by now? Delay the whole lot until i get home from work.

The Worst of Perth : The IPL games will start at midnight on Channel 10. Your wish is their command.

Deal or no Deal sounds like a crap deal to deal with. Personally, I prefer Dalziel. He's the ralziel dalziel.

Does channel 7 still exist?
