Good point, hadn't thought of that but it seems to work quite well.

I'm not sure what you found "annoying" about the election results,  
the outcome, or the fact of them being displayed :-)))

Actually I'm somewhat north of Denver (Cheyenne). Snowing like crazy  
at the moment.

But my point was that "critical" information that is some hours old  
is of little use :-) Timeshifted emergency info is a little  
distressing, good thing I have a police scanner :-)

The crawls also seem to screw up the usually very reliable commercial  
detection, not surprisingly. I don't think it's the crawl itself but  
the logo that is part of it.
