Discovery Channel feedback

I think we should all send a comment to Discovery to show how many
happy viewers they had [which may enourage them to produce
more coverage in the future]. I couldn't find an email address, but I
posted the following comment via their website at

Jerry, you have to stop it with this posting of ROL chat.
What was the purpose? If people want to present their views, they will, you don't have to do it for them.
Oh and BTW, I thought it was neat! Kind of interesting to see rocketry from a different perspective. If I saw that, I would defiantly be like WOOOO where do I sign up. But that happened 8 years ago without seeing it on TV.
Fun program to watch. Also interesting to match some names from ROL and RMR with some faces.

It scrolls off forever so I saved this brief historic moment for "comment".

Looking at their web site, looks like the sequence was rerun this morning starting at Midnight, and will be run again Thursday evening at the same time as yesterday's show (don't know if they adjust for timezones across the country). I'll get someone to tape it for me Thursday...

It came on here in Denver (Mountain time) at 6:00 pm versus the 8:00 pm (Eastern) listed on the Discovery Channel website, so it doesn't look like they adjust for timezones.

that's why those owned channels always replay things at midnight, so it's on at 8/9 on the west coast. you guys just get to see an early sneek peek !
USA does the same thing with their movies, they play it twice.

Heard about this at the office. Non-rocket people were pretty psyched. I don't watch TV though. My group's software schedules cable network commercials, Discovery included. The last time I watched TV, the same SUV climbed the same spiral staircase seven times in a row on A&E. I couldn't sleep a wink worrying about angry phone calls. Turns out it was some kind of crazy saturation advertising scheme.
Maybe the show will come out on a Discovery Store video.

I sent TDC some praise on their decision to air Rocket Challenge, and got this response.
I recommend that everyone use their webform at

to let them know that you watched the show. It can only help support a decision to air more shows.
[ I would not negatively on the content at this time, as they were not the ones to produce it, and we don't want to discourage them re-airing it in a few months time ]

It's over 1200 lines long, Rich. Is ANYONE actually going to read it?
Or how about "Hey JI! Quit posting binaries!"

So far I am the only guy to not buy them from. Let's be honest here.
And once again I apologize for that.
