I was afraid that this might happen.  I think that is why so much of the 
list was consumed with zap2it topics since the announcement, too.. 
everyone had the general feeling that once they made the announcement, 
the service could disappear at any time.  Ugh.

So.. anyone have a good source for a starting point on some screen 
scraping code?  I wonder if DirecTV could be convinced to export their 
programming data to their subscribers via XML...
