Ever see pictures from before there was TV? A bunch of people staring at a radio as if under a trance?

I listened to today's stage online. No video what so ever. As the stage came to an end, I was doing exactly that. Staring at my computer. Ignoring everything around me. Co-workers walked by and just laughed. Of course, my imediate response was, "SSSSSHHHHHH!!!!"

Just what Gramps would have done.

PS: See, no spoiler!

I have a TV in my office but the only channel I get is CNBC. I was hitting refresh so often that my fingers are bruised.

No spoiler as much as I want to write about the stage.
There is a discussion going on on the TDF board. nmLen J

I start with Eurosport but end up having problems maintaining the connection.

I've noticed the more popular stages have been worse. I guess there's a lot of people trying to listen.

After I got sick of having to reconnect I jumped over to OLN and heard the rest there without any trouble.
Their coverage stinks compaired to Eurosport but they did run the last 30 minutes without interuption.

I even posted here a quote from Paul Sherwen - "When you crack in a race like this, you blow to smithereens."

Then it said "What a race."

There was NO mention of who - or what - cracked. Just a teaser.

Nevertheless, my post was abducted and sent to cyber neverland.

That said, I too stared at my computer.
