Or they just shut them down.  I still wish SageTv was in business. My
SageTv stuff is still running fine, but I don't know what I'm going to
do when it dies.  I guess I'll have to go back to Mytv and the
associated huge, loud, noisy front-end boxes.

That said, I'm still pretty happy with Gmail (I use it mostly via
mutt/IMAP rather than the WebUI), and it sure beats the e-mail service
I paid for in the past [it's certainly _way_ better than the Outlook
server they run at work].  The Google search engine still works fine
for me, and my Nexus Galaxy phone has been great.
