There's no bigger fan of Ron than me, and I get how frustrating it can be, but if I wanted to hear someone passive aggressively poo poo all over the staff I'd just go into work. It's really annoying.

Agree 100%. I get that this is kind of his new chance to do what he wants with a show (which basically seems like having people sit in with him so he can shoot the poo poo), but christ, he's borderline whining at this point. And (to me) it's getting uncomfortable when he's calling out the production. You've got to figure that Shelby, regardless of having interned there before, is still trying to get a handle on things, and Pepper is trying to hold things together with new stuff happening.

Before, it seemed Ron would encourage the disorganization to turn it into great radio. But now, it seems he just bitches about it, and the staff is confused. Shelby has on multiple occasions asked Ron on mic, "how do you want me to react to this?"

Hey Ron, how about we give everyone a week to maybe gel a little bit before calling them out?

I think it's his way of dealing with the whole 'Fez is a stalker' issue. He sounded like he really didn't want to do it and it must have shaken him deeply to realize Fez had been playing him like a fool for so long. Granted, if this is a bit, it's a very good one and Ron and Fez deserve awards for their acting, but Ron seems deeply suspicious of his fellow co-workers ever since Fez was ratted out as a liar.

When Paul O ratted out Fez about giving up Skippy, and the whole bit about the uncomfortable present. I think Ron airing that really solidified a lot of suspicions about Fez.

I think the freetrial page is done.

Steven Knight's youtube really showed how behind the times siriusxm already is. It honestly would make more sense to broadcast from twitch or ustream at this point since those sites actually work. I can't tell you how many error messages I got on the online player over the holidays.

Steven Knight basically chopped full O&A shows into their own individual bitesized chunks and he had it up on his YouTube the day of.

Sirius struggles to put shows on demand (where you're stuck with the original pad data to guide you) or push things to Audible.

And these days, VidOandA (and others) is putting up video segments the day they talk about them. I purposely didn't listen to the Serch stuff the other day because I wanted to wait for the video, and it was up in a matter of hours.

Listening live with pausing was working, even though On Demand was down, but now that's toast and after refreshing I can't even log in.

I'd check their Twitter for a glib, non-caring response but work broke that for me. Time to try Stitcher or something for an afternoon I guess.

For the longest time after their first channel move, my radio would not let me set their new station as a preset. Every time I'd turn it off and back on their old station was in my presets again, which meant the radio would sit on loading for 3 minutes and then go to the preview channel. Then, I'd hit the preset to their old station, and by some black magic it would take me to their new station.

Hitting other channels during the loading time would just make those channels sit on "loading" as well until it decided to throw me to the preview channel.

It's working for me, but I couldn't even log in most of the day yesterday. I even checked it again around 10pm just to see and it was still down. I hate this company.

Also, really loved Opie "jokingly" constantly interrupting to push his Instgram, YouTube and Twitter. Great "bit." Not obnoxious and unlistenable at all.

Just be realistic with your expectations around what calling will accomplish. Unless you actually threaten to cancel you aren't going to get much more than a "Sorry, we are working on it", and if you do threaten it isn't guaranteed that you will get an offer for any compensation.

They might offer to compensate you for the downtime, but they will likely do something like calculate it down to the # of seconds they will admit to being down for and you'll get a refund for $1 or so.

Church.

The original origin story of Skippy was it was a feral cat Fez found in New York. During the Skippy talks episode, Fez hosed up and said he bought it (or got it from a shelter)

I don't know where Fez got that one cat from for the photo but I doubt it was his. Remember this is the same guy who hid moving from retard island for over a year.
