    Ouch...yeah, I guess I left the "pirate" impression - but _please_ do
purchase the tapes rather than copy them, every dollar you spend is money
to Turner, but it's also a vote for the show. I merely mentioned the
"copy" aspect because so far the tapes are only available for RENT
everywhere I've looked in Canada, and I'm not a happy Kat. Like I said
on the newsgroups, not everything Ted's ever done is clueless, but when
he screws up, he does it in a BIG way.
