    Scoreboard only works on IBM machines. (Not like last year where it also worked on a Mac.)

    Interviews are only audiovid, no written transcripts, and audiovid has commercials at the beginning.

    No, 95%.

    I think it has more to do with IBM sponsorship than a majoritarian bias.

    Doesn't PC stand for Personal Computer? The Mac is a PC then, right? IBM refers to machines, like Dell, that have their historical origins in IBM technology and software. That's the only distinction I was making.

    I don't want to start some lame debate over this, please.

    Well you can run the scoreboard in HTML and just hit the update button.

    Okay, I see where to do it. Thanks. It's a bit annoying to hit the Update button all the time, though.

    Watching on the "Scoreboard and Stat" option at the top of the home page is a much better way to watch anyway. Then you can see all live scores simultaneously displayed, and all those flashing numbers...& net cam and stats if you want. BTW, have you seen the new Mac? http://www.apple.com/imac/
