This Blog in the Wall Street Journal! Imagine my surprise (truthfully!) when I received a Google Alert indicating that this blog listed as a source for information concerning new channels to be offered via Roku in an article in the Wall Street Journal! This article includes a link to this blog, with the following caption for the link: "Other Articles Discussing this Story - A Match Made in Cyberspace, Matters of Life and Death, -and- To Protect and Serve (Posted on David Louis Harter's Blog at Mon, Nov 23, 2009 at 10:44AM)."

I promise I shall not allow the media attention and inevitable fame that shall follow in the wake of this change me or this blog in any way!

COLD! This morning is the coldest that it has been here in Corning since December 21, 1939! It was 24° during the night, and the temperature had increased to a mere 27° when I arrived at my office at 7:30 AM! Yikes! Interestingly, it is so dry that there was no ice on Mr. Nitro's windshield! Were there to be rain at these temperatures, certainly we would have snow—something that is experienced here very rarely;. The last snow here was ten years ago.
