FIG - A Footy Digg

That Molly has been busy - he's putting the finishing touches to Fig, a user voted AFL Stories site.

He's got a FIG Blog and a Tag cloud and a revenue sharing model for registered users. That's cool.

My job is to make Saints the biggest tag!

Nice one Molly!

Foxtel kicks off Remote Record

I signed up for Foxtel's new service - Remote Record.

I can access the Foxtel EPG on my PC, search for programs I want to watch (up to 7 days in the future) and then send this to my Foxtel IQ system which will then queue the shows up for recording

Pity there is no information for Channel 10 and Channel 7 -- I guess we wont be watching anything on those networks this year (AGAIN)

Oh shit - all the AFL games are on Channel 10 and Channel 7 this year. I'm screwed
