Subject: What we'll do with 500 channels of video

[I always assumed that what we'd do with 500 channels of video is to spend 40
minutes (that's a little less than 5 seconds per channel) discovering there's
nothing on... --psl]

I saw this in the paper recently:

"Last summer, the cable television station that serves Columbia S.C.  aimed
a camera full-time at an aquarium to occupy a vacant channel, which was
awaiting the September start-up of the Science-Fiction Channel.  When Sci-Fi
replaced the 'fish channel,' complaints were so numerous that the company
was forced to find another channel for the aquairum, which now runs 14 hours
per day, sharing time with the Bravo Channel."
