    Make sure you have plenty of salsa - but DO NOT have any silica packs near your computer in case they absorb all your posts at the changeover.

    D'ya suppose the HTF 2.0 will require a special "handshake" to get the necessary parts to properly communicate with each other?

    I have a signal booster at the ready in case the rabbit ears aren't up to snuff.

    I have started a consulting service to evaluate any compatibility issues that may arise. For the low price of $2,000.00 per computer, plus traveling expenses, I will come to your location and evaluate your computer to ensure that it is up to date and HTF-2.0 will run with out any issues. In the likely event that there is an issue, extra charges will apply. Send me a PM if interested. Don't get caught unprepared when HTF 2.0 is released. Plan ahead now!!

    Will my current computer work when HTF goes from analog to digital? Can I still get my gov't converter box?

    (I never use the front page, and hadn't seen the countdown. Intriguing.)

    This is ridiculous. The old, black-and-white HTF was perfect, just the way it was. Then they had to go and make it all COLOR. It hurts my eyes, I tell ya. What're they gonna do this time? Make it 3-D? Sheesh.

    Rumor has it that HTF 2.0 will not function unless the user is wearing a USB dog shock collar.

    I'm not sure what's up with that...... [​IMG]

    Will they colorize the old threads or leave them as is?

    I wonder if a firmware upgrade will allow us to get to the 2.0 platform...or do you suppose will we need to purchase new hardware?

    Hopefully you all will enjoy 2.0 as much as you seem to enjoy speculating. [​IMG]

    Tony, that is an odd avatar. Is it Kristen Bell?
