Had you got on board when Al Gore invented it, you'd be up to date instead of still working that Commodore 64... ;D

Is BB.com still set to surpass 90 million in sales this year or were sales lower due to the global economic downturn?

I believe the magic number is closer to 200M

That's great.  In 2007, they were predicting sales of 90 million in 2008, and Will told me the economic downturn was having no effect on the sales at that time.  Also the growth was exponential, so I thought it would keep going up.  BB.com was covered in the news a lot, but I haven't seen any articles lately which is why I asked.

Yes..  I could understand Dan doing the play by play and having a former pro as the analyst.  Like they did when they had Gunther...

I'm not sure what we'll get out of Larry.

Does BB.com flip the bill for the webcast?  It seems like AMI and the IFBB are the ones capitalizing.

BB.com is footing the bill - the paid for the rights to be a big sponsor, and provide the service of giving us free webcasts with the latest technology on Friday and Saturday night!

Awesome!

At what time will this be in Sweden? We are in the same time zone as UK I believe. Sometime very late or early morning, maybe iŽll make an allnighter of it preparing with my bong all night long.  :D

Very sweet.. I know there have been glitches and slow-downs pretty much every live stream.. hopefully it's going to be perfect this year and they prepare for the MASSIVE traffic that it will get.

I am not complaining by any means.. it's free.. it's great! But nothing worse than the first callout for the mens and the screen freezes! :)

I'd be fine with commercials, etc, just like TV, if it meant they got more $ for bandwidth.

I remember a few years back I had a c-note on Ronnie and getbig and the feed crash right as they announce the winner (Jay).
