The Richard III Special

The Richard III Special broadcast by Channel 4 in the UK will be on Monday, February 4th at 9pm there, which means 4pm EST, 3pm CST, 2pm MST, and 1pm PST.

There are ways for people who are not in the UK to watch. This is mostly done via something called a VPN (Virtual Private Network). You can read more about them here. I’ve been using these for a couple of years for business and especially when I travel. Occasionally I’ve had to actually access local wifi (McDonald’s unfortunately sometimes), but I try to avoid that.

For the uninitiated, this is also how people can easily fake an ip. I wasn’t going to talk about this, but some of you enjoying the details of Statcounter need to know that an IP log is not entirely reliable.

I would put up a picture, but how many times can I post Richard III or a manipulation of Richard Armitage? Okay, never mind I asked that. :D

How about this below? So it’s not Richard III related. Use your imagination. I see Richard Armitage on his way to somewhere great.
