The site has actually regressed. According to archive.org,
* Here it is in January 2008. Notice the only change is that the links have been removed and the under construction text has been added. (And also the details about why they were named one of the 10 most green companies by Newsweek were taken out. Probably because the ethanol plant in question was a horrible failure, costing $200 million to build, and eventually being sold in bankruptcy court for $25 million. * In 2007 the site was all about how much they loved ethanol! * From November 2004 to June 2006 they actually used Flash on their webpage! * Heck, the oldest version in the archive.org database, from November 1999 (a time when they still though page counters was a good idea), is more useful than the current version. It had a 35 MB movie that you could presumably spend 2 hours downloading from your 56K modem.
I'd thought of that, getting local channels from another city. But according to DirecTV they can only give the "local" channels to people that are actually local. So, for example, I can't get the Orlando stations here in St. Louis.
