@KiwiPie I didn't comment because I thought it worked so well as a malapropism.
Could get quite messy for anyone astern on a lee tack though
@mariner4life the only sport I actually prefer listening to than watching live.
I loves me Test cricket but one day at the actual match is enough, but I'll gladly have the radio on for all 5.
OK I accept my POV is coloured by the fact I had no issues on Saturday night but I do think there's been a massive over-reaction to Sparks problems.
I mean anytime there's any fucking drizzle about there's a high probability you'll lose your Sky feed. Spark also did have a Plan B in place and initiated it although it seems that they have communicated this better.
SKY have been treating their customers with arrogant disdain for decades. Spark have introduced some competition and oh shit all of a sudden there's 10 "free" SKY sports channels.
I do have enormous sympathy for anyone who can't or couldn't get to see the game live and wanted to but I'm fully supportive of Spark upsetting the cosy monopoly Sky enjoyed and think there's been a predictable response from the media whipping up hysteria.
I get "880,00 Spark viewers really happy" isn't going to grab the headlines but I do think Sky have played the MSM.
Google tells me that Chaoyang is the fossil capital of China. Clearly they are trying to revitalise this for a new generation of paleontologists by turning their air into a tar pit.
Seriously if 300 is hazardous - don't go outside at all anyone unless you're dressed like Neil Armstrong going for a wander around the Sea of Tranquillity - WTF is 900??!!!!!
