Schedule Change?
It looks like the Sunday night re-airing of Wednesday's episode is being changed again; beginning next week, it will be pushed back a half-hour. Therefore, the Wednesday night episode will be shown again Sunday at 11:30pm/10:30pm C.

Site speedups
Near the end of last week, we worked to speed up some aspects of the website. Hopefully this should result in improved access times, especially to users on dialup connections.

My Precioussss
Last but certainly not least, there's one more wallpaper available for you. It's from "The Return of the Lord of the Rings to the Two Towers", so it might be just the right one with which to scare your annoying younger sibling!

Season 5 on DVD slightly sooner
According to Paramount, the Season 5 DVD set will be available on February 22nd instead of the previously-announced March 1st. That's just a month away! Get ready!

South Park Republicans?
Although some conservatives have condemned South Park, others say some of its positions actually align heavily with some of today's conservatives. What do you think? Does South Park represent today's (or tomorrow's) Conservativism, or is this wishful thinking? Or perhaps just a bunch of boloney?
