It's official - the deadline for the conversion to Digital TV has been delayed until June. Now you get to hear 4 more months of those annoying commercials, and of course, endless blathering by me! :) Here's the official story:

If you're still watching T-V on an analog signal, your set won't go black this month. The House has just passed a Senate bill that will give you four extra months to switch to a digital transmitter.
Supporters argued more than six million people, including many elderly, poor
and disabled Americans, would've lost service without the delay.
Republicans, who opposed it, say the government had already given people years
to prepare for the switch.
President Obama is expected to sign the legislation.
The new date for the death of analog is June 12th.
