I wonder if FrankArr has picked up on this little bit of trivia. Tonight at midnight, in one hour and forty two minutes Foxtel in Australia will be launching their local SciFi Channel. This is the single event that I hoped would happen ever since I subscribed to Foxtel on cable back in 1998.
You can download the program guide for the SciFi channel in PDF format, and for those of you who need to be able to flick to the SciFi as soon as they walk in the door – the channel designation is 132. Since watching the SciFi channel is going to take up so much of my life I thought it would be fun to divide the number 132 by 42 – guess what, the result is π (Pi), or at least as close as you can get to it when all you can deal with is whole numbers.
Is this a coincidence? I don’t think so, I think that there is a geek hiding somewhere in Foxtel which has “made it so” – and I think that this bodes well for the SciFi channel here in Australia.
