One Of These Days...we'll see Manilow TV

It looks like they're almost ready to go! is taking pre-orders now. Click the logo to go there. Still think they did a great job w/ that site. I love tight code....but guyz, come on, the countdown clock came from a dating site? We're going to have fun with that one.

Not that anyone cares what I think but a "teaser" clip of video as a hint of what's to come would really close the sale on top of the text on the page.

I would pay to see the concert that Barry gave for the BMIFC convention that included the new, longer Mayflower segment. (Is my hint strong enough?)

BTW gang, I have no idea what's going on behind the scenes on this, but I *do* know that encoding as much video as they're talking about is a TON of work and setting up a pay-to-view system is a complex beast. If there's a bug in the system (IF - I don't know for sure, I just know that I've had to debug all kinds of projects post-launch) be kind if you have to point it out and be patient for a few minutes while it gets fixed. Yes, I know there's money involved, but TPTB and whoever's working on this is human so "be nice". Why? Well, it's the human thing to do. Besides, they have a beefy FAQ list and it looks like they paid attention to the pre-launch Internet chatter and addressed some of the issues brought up.

Sitting back and watching to see what happens.

  1. I second your emotion about the Mayflower shows from convention. That would be worth the price for that month. And you know there will be kinks, but it sounds like they are providing a means via live chat to help fix the problems. That's encouraging in itself.
