    How about this one:

    Direct viewers to the website for your show, so they can get all the latest information.

    Work your butt off on webfeatures and updating.

    Feel like an idiot when they can’t access your site for days, including the day your show goes to air.

    Beautiful.

    “In radio or TV, someone would get fired for this much dead time.”

    Don’t just think dead time, think dead service. Think Country Canada Channel or Galaxie. Like cbc.ca, they’re non-mandated resource hogs.

    And here I thought that because CBC.ca didn’t meet Stursberg’s “million viewers” rating, that it was being purged.

    More shuffling deckchairs on the Titanic?

    I guess the mgmt was too busy working on more new power points than on infrastructure for the webpage.

    The problem is step 3.
    >3>Reinstall Windows.

    Skip step 3 and Install Linux.
    No more problems Dude.

    It’s even more ‘fixed’ – there’s now a promo to New Music Canada on the homepage. Nice.

    actually, I would *love* to have this stripped down cbc.ca as an option.

    it looks, to my eyes, not as if cbc.ca is broken, but finally fixed.
