6/11 seems to be down.

6/11    I don't have cable, does anyone know how I can watch the World
        Cup?  I pretty much just want to catch the US and Korean games.
        \_ Do you chant "Dae Han Min Gook" extremely loudly?
           \_ If I have to. -jrleek
        \_ Local sports bar? Friend's house? Church gathering?
        \_ I watch the games on ABC, can't you?
           \_ No, I live in Livermore.  I can't get anything but 2 Spanish
              stations.  Watching it on the Spanish channel might not be a
              bad idea...  I was really hoping to be able to get a stream
              online. -jrleek
              \_ I hear you can download "TVants" and watch ESPN online with it
                 though I haven't tried it myself. I don't know if that would
                 have all games. Also supposedly you can watch the BBC stream.
                 It is supposed to be limited to the UK, but:
              \_ Try what the end of this article says:
                Or maybe try using a proxy to access BBC online streams.
                I think it's talking about this:
                \_ Hey, thanks.  At least in my test, tvuplayer works
                   pretty well.  We'll see for the World Cup.
                   Addendum: Works GREAT.  I saw most of the Aus vs Japan
                   game this morning, but missed the last 15 minutes where
                   Austrailia come back from 0 to 1 to win 3 to 1.  !@#$
        \_ What about downloads?  Who can watch a game at 6am?

6/11    Japanese panzer fans, jawohl!  Weirdos.  -John
        \_ HEIL JAPANESE JO...oh wait.
        \_ Offensive on many many different levels.  Thanks John!

6/11    US military commander calls Gitmo suicides "act of war"
        \_ General Jack Ripper is alive and well.
        \_ When I first read that, I thought it was from the Onion.
        \_ yes, act of war... let's kill them... wait... they already died.
        \_ 'The US military said the men's bodies were being treated "with the
           utmost respect".'  Oh good.  As long as we treat _dead_ bodies at
           Gitmo w/ respect.
