Hi Chris and the guys,
I just watched your feature on KNTV-11, San Jose's ABC outlet. I imagine you're in a motel somewhere, having just watched the feature (finally!) after such a long time.
Anyway, I was sitting at the computer and saw the video of the van with your web page address painted on the side, so I connected immediately as I watched the rest of the piece.
Good Work! Good Luck! Much success in your efforts, both on the court and on the keyboard.
PLEASE REPLY TO: email@example.com

Thanks for the encouragement. We actually managed to watch the feature in Snowville, Utah at the house of a nice old lady who let us in to use her satellite dish (the mountains rule out tv reception in Snowville). Keep checking in, and give us any advice you can about computer stuff (being from Silicon Valley and all).
