As I watched the final-ever episode of Top Gear featuring Jeremy Clarkson on the 40-inch LCD TV set in the livingroom whilst eating my dinner, I realised that there was a huge business opportunity out there.
Every time the media publish a story about SkyTV or Netflix, the comments on those stories show that huge swathes of the population are switching from broadcast and pay-TV to streaming services. It's also apparent however, that there are an even larger number of folk who'd love to do just that -- but don't have a clue how to.
I think the timing is perfect for a "Mr Net TV" franchise to be set up around the country -- effectively providing an invaluable service to consumers and generating a healthy income for a team of franchise-holders.
Yes, people have been complaining about the lack of forums for months now so I finally got off my chuff and finished the transition to the new server and the commissioning of the new forums.Unfortunately you will have to re-register, it just wasn't practical to transition the IDs from the old server -- although the old stuff will be maintained in a "read-only" capacity for some time to come.
So, if you want to "have your say" then register at the new forums using the magic word Aardvarkrox when asked for it.
Take a moment to introduce yourself to the rest of the Aardvark community and pretty shortly I'll be expanding the number of forums to encompass a number of areas that are regularly discussed on this site.
The contact form is not yet working (got to rejig the CGI scripts) but if anyone wants to email me they can send their communications to editor at this domain or PM me via the forums.
Oh yes, if anyone wants a bit of a plug then the sponsorship space is now up for grabs. Until someone is prepared to offer a donation for the use of this space, I'm happy to offer a free plug to anyone who wants to send me a suitable 150x150 graphic and link.
Sorry, the headlines haven't been updated today
