The electronic program guide (epg) decides that a George Bush speech broadcast on Voice of America TV (Hotbird Satellite 370) is called “dummyEventName”. And who said there was no such thing as machine intelligence?!

By the way, I got my hotbird box and dish from SatEuropa.co.uk. I’m not particularly into watching television but channel surfing from Voice of America to Al Jazeera to Kurdistan TV to Italian Porn (which sets new standards for interactivity, by the way) to the Maharashi Network is a truly fascinating experience. I also, for reasons I have yet to understand myself, enjoy Russia Today on 249.
