    Dave to get On-Demand Streaming

    Does this mean American viewers will be able to watch the show streamed, or will we get the dreaded "This Video is not viewable in your country" message?

    I highly doubt it will be available internationally. I can't think of one legal free on-demand TV service offered by a British broadcaster being available to view outside the UK unfortunately.

    Are you sure about that? You seem equivocal :-)

    Seven identical posts in a row. Must be a forum record.

    I thought this was mainly a subscription service with very limited ad-supported "free" content?

    Which seven posts is that, then? Didn't see any on this particular topic, if that's what you're referring to.

    Why is it that some people end up posting the same message multiple times anyway?

    Usually it is because the internet is slow so the person will press the "Post" button several times.

    In my case, I submitted once and was greeted with an error screen. Being the intelligent person I am, I didn't check to see if it had been posted, so clicked back and then submit. Another error screen. Third time lucky, I think. No. So I click back and rapidly click submit as fast as my finger and mouse will allow, as this is certainly the most logical thing to do when submitting things on the internet. At this point, the successful post screen ensued and I sat back, relishing my success.

    This is why I don't have a Paypal account...

    Do you mean the 500 server error message? This appears when somebody else on the board posts at the same moment that you do. Your message still gets posted, so there's no need to go back and post it again.

    People need to learn this because when the board explodes into activity next month you'll probably all be seeing this error message frequently.

    I think that was the error. I will do next time (unless I want to advertise my website or one of my several online dating profiles)...

    Maybe Seb could be contacted about this, though I doubt the mod would be the one to speak to.

    I would imagine a proxy server would sort that out.

    In the same way, so would torrenting, http file-sharing sites, and streaming from sites like youtube.
