Web Two Dot Cotton

You won't be surprised to hear that the terrestrial TV reception in the Bathypelagic region (approximately 3000 metres below the surface of the Atlantic ocean) is rather flaky. Ironically, the signal for Channel 5 is almost watchable, or rather it would be if my required viewing comprised nothing but documentaries about Hitler. So I was delighted when Dave pointed me in the direction of BBC's iPlayer, which promises to "make the unmissable, unmissable". I for one am convinced, following a recent Eastenders story in which Dot Cotton finally embraced the web. Apparently next week, Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell come to blows over the business value in tag based folksonomies.
