Where to watch the Olympics online?

What are the options, if any, for live video of the Winter Olympics online in the US? Having been able to watch CBC in 2002, I was spoiled, but this year it's back to NBC only. Worse, with the games in Europe this year, they will be showing everything that matters spliced into bite-size melodramatic bits, in between interminable ads and features, six hours after it actually happens. So, any options, licit or illicit?

With a little help from my friends... finding Belushi & Cocker?

I'm looking for classic "Saturday Night Live" sketches that might not have made the "Best of..." DVDs. Namely, John Belushi performing as Joe Cocker WITH Joe Cocker! But there were far too many good ones to let them all fade into oblivion! Is there any way to find these classic sketches to save them for posterity?? Thanks!!

How can I shield my TV from electrical interference?

I have a small LCD television hanging on the wall. I hung it in front of the power outlet in order to hide the cord, but it picks up a little bit of interference in that position. If I move it away from the outlet, the interference goes away, but you can see the cord. Is there a solution that will allow me to sheild the TV from the interference and keep it hanging where it is?

Brick wall PSA

A few years ago, I saw a PSA narrated by what sounded like a black man in his 40s or 50s. It described how one summer he and his brother were told by their father to build a brick wall for no apparent purpose. He talked about how hot it was, how they didn't spend any time with their friends, and they had to rebuild parts that weren't up to snuff. At the end, the father said something like, "Now don't ever tell me there's anything you can't do." I loved the ad, and was wondering whether it was available online. Any ideas?

How the heck can you make a career out of the "Real World"?!

Just how much do people make on television? I'm not talking about the big-time tv stars with well-publicized contracts such as network stars like Friends, Oprah, Letterman, Katie Couric, etc., or the many people who get sitcom/series deals on major networks where we can guesstimate how much they are earning to the right order of magnitude. No, I'm asking about all the "little people" who fill my teevee screen. (much more inside) [more inside]

LCD Television lip-sync

Advice wanted on TV video server.

I have an old Intel Celeron 501MHz PC sitting around collecting dust. I'm wondering whether it would be suitable as a video server for my television, assuming I upgrade it with WiFi and a TV card. I don't have/want cable, so I don't necessarily need TiVo-like capabilities, but it would be nice to have something that could access my WiFi network, grab my downloads (mostly fansubbed anime, foriegn shows, etc.), and play them on the home theatre system. Is it worthwhile to use such a system for this purpose? Is there a more elegant solution that I'm overlooking that doesn't involve burning a ton of DVDs?

Removing/attaching cable connector

I have a standard cable television cord that runs from through a small hole in my living room floor (coming up from the basement). I would like to re-route this cable to another part of the house. The problem is that the connector on the end of the cable is too big to fit into the hole. Is there an easy way to disconnect this bit so I can pull the cord through the hole (and reattach it after I create a hole in a different room)?

Mulder and Scully in Disco Pants

I need a cable box

I have regular television cable service, and I want to hook it up to an old television with only UHF/VHF and a coaxial port. If I recall my grandmother's set-up correctly, I need a little cable box which takes in the cable signal and feeds the television's coax port. Cable channels are selected through the box. Thing is, I can't seem to find this sort of thing in Radio's Shack catalogue, or anywhere online for that matter. With the advent of cable-friendly television sets, am I out of luck? How hard will it be for me to find a simple cable box?
