Miller's problem appears to be same ol. Too much alcohol and a feeling of entitlement.

Talking about TV programming, anyone remember waiting for the Indian in the test pattern to make a move.

I would guess only us old folks remember test patterns.

How did people ever survive with just 3 black & white channels that were only available from 7 am to midnight.

Shortwave radios and Ham radios were more popular back then.

Books: ~ Time-Life - The Old West ~ The Railroaders * Rail Ventures - 4th Edition

 

I think it is absolute mythology that there's any national system that is profitable. And I think the naysayers just have to get over it. ~ Amtrak President Alex Kummant ~ June 2008
