Updated Huntington Digital TV Reception for May 2010

Thanks to some boosted signals and a re-scan, we can now get some new channels on our digital TV via our antenna.

3.1 WSAZ (NBC)-Perfect HD (high definition) signal
3.2 My Z (MNTV)-Perfect SD (standard definition) signal

8.1 WCHS (ABC)-Weak HD signal that requires some antenna adjustment*

11.1 WVAH (FOX)-Weak HD signal that requires some antenna adjustment**

13.1 WOWK (CBS)-Very good HD signal
13.2 WOWK's Doppler radar-Very good SD signal (sometimes shows alternate games during NCAA Men's Basketball Championship)

30.1 WQCW (CW) Good HD signal*
30.2 WQCW's pointless SD feed of the same programming*

33.1 WPBY (PBS) Pointless-but-very good SD signal
33.2 WV PBS2-Very good SD signal. Shows stuff from the Create network and some alternate PBS programming, often re-runs that you might have missed a night or two ago
33.3 WPBY's Very good HD signal

44.1 WTSF (Daystar) Moderate signal

* indicates channels that my wife found during a recent re-scan and some antenna adjustments
** indicates channel that I found after messing up her antenna placement and trying to cover my ass

More pre-World Cup smack talk @ England

  • Hung Parliament? As if...
  • Juicy Catour has a cologne for men called "Dirty English." It smells like the outside of King Cross Station at 7 AM on a Sunday.
  • Our head of state is half-Kenyan. Yours is half-German. Wir gewinnen!
  • My English setter eats his own poop.
  • Hot beer, cold women.

...ASAT Endorsement: Yes on the Health Department Levy

Don' let'em fool ya. Votin' "nah" on the levy won' mean y'all can smoke while a'drinkin' yer devil's buttermilk or playin' yer nickle slots. It jus' that po' kids won' get whoppin' cough jabs 'n those fornicatin' college folk from Wherethehellville won' get free rubbers.

Y'all's gotta write the legislature on that.

...ASAT Endorsement: Yes on the TTA levies

1. Pullman Square was funded in part to be a hub for TTA. Throwing a little money at it now can keep the bucks from Byrd, Jay, and Nicky Joe coming for upkeep.

2. With no levy, the routes would be even more nonsensical and slower.

Upsell Fail: Bulb Grease at AutoZone

Memo to AutoZone:

Don't try to upsell me some dumb shit called "bulb grease" for a couple of bucks when I stop by to get a break light. I'm already pissed enough for having to buy two when I only need one.

Also, don't instruct your employees to get all bitchy with me and act hurt that I'm not falling for the bs upsell.

Screw it, I'm going to NAPA next time.

...ASAT UK General Election Endorsement: Liberal Democrat

Hey, I was Lib Dem before Lib Dem was cool. When I studied abroad back in 2000, I found the Labour Party to be too nanny-tastic and, as a college student, most of the Lab supporters I met were borderline Militant Tendency sorts. The Tories, on the other hand, were a bunch of pash knobs who seriously thought that I gave a rat's ass about who their great-great grandpappies were.

If you are in Blighty for the election tomorrow, vote for a real third way. Vote for some real hopey-changey stuff. Tell the champagne socialist and bastard descendants of guys names Charles and William that they've had the last century.

Vote Liberal Democrat.

...ASAT 5th District Senate Election Endorsement: John Cummings

Judge Cummings comes from the common-sense center of American political thought (unlike the solidly right-wing Sen. Evan Jenkins) and would seek to hold everyone---from big business to the man on the street---accountable, just as he has done in his courtroom.
