Best of Instructables on Good Morning America 2008-12-06 Answered

We just received word about an "anchor chat" about The Best of Instructables on Good Morning America, tomorrow at 8:25 am ET. The anchor will have the before and after of several projects we sent on a table along with the book, and he/she will be talking about DIY holiday gifts.

Local markets have the choice of picking up anchor chats or switching to local news for that time slot. The segment will be posted online as well.

More details when I have them!

Here's the link to the story on Good Morning America's website:
The Great Technology Swap. I'll post the video as soon as it is available.


I just got the link to the story; the video will be available soon.

was this the ahead of the curve thing?
because I have a video of that...

Cool! Did it air? I'd love to check it out if they have it online, but didn't see anything on the GMA web site...

I work third shift, and usually go right to bed when I get home (if I don't go hunting/fishing). Today I'll make an exception!

Since I work a second shift, it was nearly the same for me.....but I didn't get up in time....*sigh*

Some times I really do wish I had TV...

I was going to make a joke about this being the twenty-first century, but when you think about how much "TV" content is available online (including live content from national channels), It's sometimes a surprise that more people don't have a traditional TV set-up.

Yes, that's actually surprisingly true, it would be easier (and cheaper) for most people to just watch TV online.

In the UK, it would only be cheaper if you avoid watching "live" TV (ie shows being transmitted online at the same time as over the airwaves).

From the TV License website:

You must be covered by a valid TV Licence if you watch or record television programmes as they're being shown on TV. It makes no difference what equipment you use - whether it’s a laptop, PC, mobile phone, digital box, DVD recorder or a TV set - you still need a licence.

The way they check is to hold a database of all addresses in the UK - if there is no license shown for a particular address, then that address gets a demanding letter. They don't check to see if you own a TV etc, they just assume you do.

Bah, I'm already going to be at work. Boooo counting money. :P

Wow! That's awesome! The book sure is attracting attention!

I'll be on the road :( / :)

Yay! I'll be up then anyways!

I am going to try, but I don't get home until after 1 am :-)

Finally, something I may be able to view as it happens :-) I will only get 6 hours of sleep, but that isn't too abnormal these days :-)
