One guess per customer.
Date.
Time ( Central )
Year.

Guesses < 24 hours before announcement are void where prohibited. They are prohibited here.

Slave... many think ( hope ) your never is wrong....

Savitz.....

And second, I suspect that the FCC could potentially change the rules if there was a clear view that the real competitive landscape is not between two satellite radio companies, but rather between satellite radio, terrestrial radio, the Internet and iPods. There are lots of ways to get music out there; satellite radio is just one of many. Given the weak financial performance of the two companies, a merger makes a lot of sense.

and......

Nocera thinks a merger makes sense: “[S]atellite radio is far more likely to be successful if the two companies aren’t spending themselves into oblivion, and if one satellite radio company has developed enough financial strength to compete successfully against the greatest business model destroyer ever created: the Internet.”

Please forgive me for my mistake. I didn’t realize that without having an excessive number of posts on this board, I was not allowed to express my opinion on the matter.

Now that I have an understanding of this rule, it is a shame that I will not be allowed to express my opinion on how your above quote has butchered the generally understood standards of proper grammar.

I can only hope to become as charming as you one day, sir.

Unless there are major concessions (ie they give up a major part of their spectrum to a well funded company that will start competion) I dont see it happening. BUT if i was to guess July 7, 2007 at 5:07 pm. (A.K.A. 7-7-07 17:07).
