Bummer!

Guess I will just program the VCR to record the NBC evening new each day next week.
Thanks for the update.

nbc

Shari,
I just e-mailed NBC Nightly News. I told them how disappointed we were having sat thru 2 of their shows with no Airstream footage of the VAC Rally. It probably doesn't mean much to them.
We stop our work, ran home, like everyone else now disappointed
Oh well, we had a great time at the rally anyways. Maybe next year we could invite Tom Brokaw to come in person. What a story!

No need to complain to NBC...

Mario has been very nice & apologetic each time we have spoken. He said that because of this last delay, his boss is allowing him to add more time/footage to the story! So as I figure it, if it keeps getting rescheduled, before long we'll end up being the feature story!

Thumbs up So far so good...I haven't heard that we will be bumped again today

It'll air shortly before 6:00 TODAY (MDT) and I have always heard by 3:30 (MDT) if it's being bumped...so, within the next 1/2-1 hour I'll know for sure.

Bumped again

Well, the news just finished. We got bumped again. The aspirin story that aired last was certainly NOT news as our Dr told us this same information over 6 months ago.

Question Well...what can I say?

I'm just going to set my VCR to record every night 'til it shows up...

I'll try to get an MP3 file on the webpage (no, it's not done yet...) and I'll post a link.

Sorry...I have no control over the airing...

Shari

Dare I ask?

Has the NBC segment run yet? I rushed home four days last week to catch the end of the news. Nothing. Anything since then?

Here's hoping ...

Mike

You can ask...but I have no idea when it will run!

It hasn't yet...I've taken to setting my VCR every day in hopes of catching it. From what I understand, they feel it is a "great Friday piece" so it's more likely to be run on a friday...but then again, who knows!

Well, it looks like the NBC segment may be shelved indefinately...I haven't heard a thing...sorry, no news!

On a happier note...I finished the rally report website! It won't be uploaded onto the VAC Rally Report page for a couple of days, but here's a preview. <Edit: temporary link removed, see 10/24/03 post below>

Enjoy!

Shari

Unhappy Page to big for me

Shari,

The webpage is so big with all the pictures, my computer only loads about 1/3 of the images before it gives up.

I am on a dial up So that's part of the problem. I know, I know, I'm the only one left without DSL

If you can perhaps reduce the image sizes or break it up into multiple pages, it may help people like me

What I saw looked great. I am really looking forward to the NBC piece. I hope you can get it on the web after they air it!
