Lightning In A Bottle

The satellite feed was missing again this morning. At this point, it's a pretty safe bet that it has moved, probably permanently, to another location. This morning, I got up and tooled around the satellites during the time the show would have been on, but got nothing. There are dozens of satellites, each having many "channels." It's like looking for a needle in a haystack.

We will continue to look for the feed, but that's a big job. I have my suspicions the show is preparing to go digital or high-def. I also have a hunch the feed may have moved to one of the newer Canadian satellites, which I assume support the digital format. Unfortunately, my hunch isn't worth much more than a Bo Brady hunch on a donut sugar-high when it comes to this kind of thing.

I, of course, would have looked on the new Canadian satellites first this morning, except they aren't programmed into our system. We would have to call Norris the Satellite Tycoon to do that. I'm not saying Norris is expensive, but he drives a $78,000 2008 Range Rover which gets 11 mpg and told me, "I hope the price of gas goes up so we can get the riff raff off the road."

So before I go contributing to Norris' favorite charity (Norris), I would like to know for sure where this feed has gone. We will continue to look, but we have an extremely large readership base and would ask you to do the same. I've been Googling whatever I can think of regarding DOOL and satellites but so far, have found nothing. If you hear anything, either by using search engines or one of our forums, please let us know. Our email address, prevuze@gmail.com, is always posted at the top of the page, and that's the best way to communicate with us.

Until we find the feed, it just isn't practical to keep doing the daily recaps. We may post a few things, but the key to everything is the day-ahead information.

Major league websites play it close to the vest when it comes to revealing readership, so we can't make many comparisons. But we have learned this: Based on the count of page hits and "uniques," as they are called, Prevuze has a larger readership (much larger, I might add) than Wired Magazine, which in the technical world is an Internet powerhouse.

So with Prevuze, we seem to have caught lightning in a bottle. OUR READERS ROCK! We really appreciate your support, comments and feedback. We'll continue to look for the feed, you please do the same, and we'll try to keep this ball rolling.

Thanks,
Prevuze

That picture of KA is kind of frightening. If she was a pet, the ASPCA would confiscate her and charge the owners with neglect for not feeding her. She's wasted away to nothing. Someone please help her!

Is Sputnik still in orbit?  Maybe this is a communist plot to high jack DOOL in an attempt to turn the proletariat masses into mindless puppets.  Wait a second!!!!  Hmmm, if the shoe fits……….?

No matter what happens, we love you Prevuze!!!!!!!!!

I really hope that you find the feed soon. This is my favorite website to read in the morning while eating breakfast (while I'm supposed to be working). I love the recaps and you have just enough sarcasm mixed in to make it humorous without being over the top. You guys/gals at Prevuze rock!

Does Prevuze have a picture of Norris the Satellite Tycoon? Could he be related to Fred Frump?

Loved the new pictures, tho. Caroline's overreacting and Hope wanting her step-mom privileges were great.

I'll be keeping everything crossed that you find the feed. SOON!

Until you find the feed, could you just write about what was on the show today? Many of us Prevuze reader don't watch the show at all, we just read Prevuze. So we don't really care if we're reading about tomorrow's show or today's or yesterday's show.

You perform a valuable public service, Prevuze! So many people like me read your blog instead of watching the show, saving all that electricity, and eliminating wasted time. Thank you!

I'll also take a recap of the current show. I only catch it once a week right now, so I don't care either if it's a spoiler or on-date recap. I want my Prevuze!

anonymous said what I've been thinking watching Hope whither away. Yesterday on the show, in the pub scene she popped two seeds in her mouth. I hope she kept them down. Bad enough there's no meat in her role; worse there's no meat on her bones.

First time leaving a comment.. I read Prevuze every morning (I'm supposed to be working, too!). Please don't stop - please post the current day - I'll miss the prevuzisms... they have made DOOL so much more interesting & fun.. Continue to do what you do so well.

I'm a first time poster too! Prevuze, pretty, pretty please, keep posting recaps even if it's not a day ahead. I don't get to watch Days on a daily basis either and your site is the only way I can keep up to speed. What in the world would we do without you? You are the best and I just love your comments. I can't imagine my mornings without reading your blog.

"we don't really care if we're reading about tomorrow's show or today's or yesterday's show." Yes, because the actual episodes all blend together anyway.

KA must not be quite as frail as she looks. Yesterday she was able to walk around with what must be half of her jewelry line on at once.

LOL over Vicoline's picture. Mainly because in my Prevuzeless haze I misread it the first time and thought he said "overacting".
HAHAHAHA

Hang in there, Prevuze! Not only is the weekend coming I'm sure we will find the feed soon.

While I'm very disappointed, I want to let you know how much I appreciate what you do....and what you're continuing to do. It must be a very time consuming and tedious job to search the channels and satellites! I love your recaps and your wit. Please keep up your wonderful work!

I agree with the other posters about continuing "Prevuze" with recaps. PLEASE DO THAT!! I just read Prevuze instead of watching it 99% of the time anyway. Thanks for trying to find the feed to give us the day ahead episodes, but if not, PLEASE keep on making us laugh every day by posting recaps instead !! Thanks!

Please continue posting Prevuze. We love to laugh along with you. Your screen caps and captions are hilarious. I hope some one out there in this community will come across the new channel for you.

Those Damm Canadians...first they steal our worthless jobs then they try to change our sattelite channels!?! What's up with that? Keep on trying team Prevuze...you guys are the best at warning us if we should not bother to turn on the TV to watch DOOL on a particular day! Plus you make me laugh...which has been a rare occurence on DOOL this summer.

I agree with most of the posters..you are awesome and you bring laughs to me every morning while I'm supposed to be working.

Please, please continue to post a recap of the show regardless if it's not the day in advance...current day works for me since it moves along so slowly.

I have to throw in me opinion too even tho I haven't commented before.

Reading Prevuze is the best! Thanx to you, I have been able to break my habit of wasting an hour of my time on this show. If you do stop recapping, I will miss your wit. But I won't miss the show. Thank you for all your efforts.

This is the first post I have ever made but I truly read everyday! I can't tell you how much I have missed your recaps this week! I so apologize for taking you for granted and can't wait until you are up and running again! Thanks for a great doing such a great job!

I agree with several other posters. I don't normally post either, but I'm a faithful reader--at work during my lunch hour so I can keep my job!
Please please continue to post a re-cap, even if it's not a day ahead. This is the only way I can keep up with my soap!
Thanks for all you do, we all appreciate it, even if we don't always say so!

Hey Prevuze, lump me in with all the others who want a recap even if it's a day or two late! I just love to read Prevuze whenever I can...I would be crushed if your recaps stopped! I can always count on getting a good laugh no matter what. You are awesome! Thanks for letting us know what is going on, all your hard work is appreciated!

OMG I just tried reading someone else's recap. It's as boring as the show is.

At this point I read prevuze because it is prevuze - if you were writing recaps of the weather I'd read it. I hope you get the feed back because the send ups of dool are better than anything else on TV.

But if you don't, please don't stop writing - you are too good!

There you have it. It's unanimous. Prevuze MUST continue, even if it is a same day recap.

WE have spoken. The Prevuze contingent is world-wide. If you quit there will be a global surge in depression. The economy will slump even further than usual.

You don't want to be the cause of a total world melt-down do you??

Thank you for taking us poor mortals into consideration oh mighty Prevuze.

Come on all you tekkies out there. Surely with all the folks who read Prevuze everyday, someone will have the answer to this dilemma. Thanks to those of you that have already taken a stab at it.

Jumping in here, too, just to let you know that day ahead, same day, WHATEVER...please do not stop what you are doing! I work and am so techno-inept, I cannot possibly catch the show any other way. And, quite frankly, reading your site is really all I want of the show - you guys/gals make it worthwhile to follow! THANK YOU for all you do!

please find the answer or post re-caps of current shows! for those of us in the southern hemisphere, its the only way to keep up with current days - although, in saying that, 5 year old episodes might actually be better than current ones...

I agree with everyone else. Please Prevuze, post us something! Your humour is fantastic and gives me quite a few laughs in a hectic world.

Gotta have Prevuze, whether day ahead, current or past. The plot moves so slow anyway. Although I really love knowing what's going to happen a day ahead, I'm pretty sure I'll love whenever you recap it.

I noticed that Canada will begin streaming some shows. Could that be what has caused the satellite feed to disappear?

I'm disappointed, but understand. Crap, now I might have to watch the entire show instead of skipping the parts I know are zzzzz... and no,

I also agree that you guys have done an amazing job and I hope u can keep it up. I really do hope u will find where the satellite feed is at. I love getting to see the day ahead episodes esp those w/ Marlena which i've been looking at for a few months. I have faith u will get things straightened out soon. In the meantime please keep writing the prevues they're
hilarious. Thanks for everything.

Prevuze I will be holding a candlelight vigil tonight, praying that you get your feed back.

Add me to the list of people who love your snark so much, I don't care if your recaps are a day or two late, or heck even a week late.

Hey prevuze-I'm from Australia and we're 9 months behind you in terms of the show air dates but I love to read the posts you put up-they are too funny and don't care they are so far ahead of the show here-anything you can do to keep going would be really appreciated! Cheers, Luceoz
