addendum

an edit to my nbc post:
I’ve found out, NBC does have full videos of everything. IF your cable provider is licensed. You know how they ask you where you get your cable from? That determines what content you can watch online. Needless to say, I’ve changed mine to one that shows the opening ceremonies.
I don’t understand. But y’all should read Yin’s newsvine articles about the opening ceremonies. It’s linked in his comment to my previous rant. I’m partway through the second, and they’re really good.

    opening ceremonies
    Can you please tell me which cable provider that is? I missed a solid portion of the opening ceremonies and would like to be able to watch.
    Thanks,
    Julie
    PS: How are you? I haven’t talked to you in forever.

    Well it’s different for each zip code. I’m 92617 and I used one of the Direct TV listings for that area code. But if you pick the wrong one and try to watch a video you’re not allowed to, they say “Are you sure this is your provider, ’cause you’re not allowed to watch this” and give you the option to change it.
    I’m really good. Busy as all get out, but with fun stuff so I’m not complaining. How’s life for you?

    I actually just went cybernetic again, this time with a more involved implant, so I’m kind of filleted from neck to hip. And I got the placebo, which means they won’t turn it on for another 12 weeks. Boo clinical trial. But I’ve still got a week of summer left, so I’m enjoying it.
    Thanks,
    Julie

    I don’t understand…how does giving you a placebo work if you know it’s a placebo?
