I have this problem.  At first, I thought myth was screwing up because 
it looked like an mpeg issue.  It wasn't until we were watching live tv 
one day about 2 weeks ago that I realized that my cable signal had 
dropped off significantly.  Long story short, one of the trained monkeys 
(Or is that the primordial ooze that masquerades as trained monkeys?) at 
the cable co are going to waddle their way out here this week to make my 
mojo work.

Pinky, Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

I think so, Brain, but where are we going to get latex gloves, a 
swimming pool filled with vaseline and a herd of yaks at THIS time of night?
