      Yeah; probably worth warning zealous link-followers that it might be safe for work, but they will still be visiting a pr0n site!

    still record setting

    Apparently a record 115 & 1/2 million viewers tuned in for the SB..

    as a Seahawk fan I am quite satisfied. Though I do like the Broncos as well. Like most everyone else I did not see that coming. I was astonished how well Seattle played.

    Downloaded the Superbowl from my Tivo this mornin, going to strip the commercials and re-encode to h264 for archiving.

      So you are going to remove more than 50% of the broadcast to get to the actual thing you want to watch?

      Oh well, that goes to show how bad TV has become in the US, the progrmmes are mere interruptions to the endless stream of mindless 'Buy Me' crapverts.

      US TV is one thing I really don't miss now that I'm back in Blighty.

      However a certain car dealership in S.W Louisiana will forever be ingrained in my mind. The man spoke so fast that even on slo-mo it was quick.

      But the rest was just mind numbing. UK advertising is in the main works of art compared to what you have to put up with in the land of the free.

    Maybe the spike in traffic in Denver...

    Was due to Broncos fans wanting a break from watching Peyton Manning getting screwed by the Seahawks defense?

      "watching Peyton Manning getting screwed by the Seahawks defense?"

      Nah, he was so bad that was onanism.

      (Though he didn't have it in his hands much)

    It's important to note that the Superbowl people study the numbers to know exactly where people go when they switch off.

    If you can bring a bit of that into the game itself, they are less likely to turn off, and more likely to hang around to watch the sponsors - which is what it's all about really.

    Now that they know what that is, I think there is a really good chance they'll invite Janet Jackson to do another "number" again.
