crap I had to install java for a program I dl'd but I deleted that and java and now virtual machine isn't kicking back in, and I hate java so I'm having trouble getting in to the chat.

I can't see our hear anyways so I guess I'll just stand by for your recap.

DBSTalk's chat room is working...
 
With no Head Line on Sat Guys advertising tonights chat AND with the Chat room down, I bet the chat gets the LOWEST ratings ever.

That is if the Neilson guys did ratings for this channel :)
 
I was just getting ready to type the same thing.

What a waste.

I was waiting for the "fsn hd will start this weekend" or something of that magnitude. Not watching people eat ribs while discussing meaningless topics.

Don't think I'll be tuning in to one of these again....
