Marko T. Rat on the Rapid T. Rabbit and Friends show

I don't wanna hear it! I'm really embarrassed at how I did (I'm no good at improv) but I should let you have a chance to hear for yourself. The Rapid T. Rabbit and Friends episode featuring everyone's favourite Aussie rat will be aired on the Manhattan Neighbourhood Network at 5:30pm ET (Eastern Time) on Wednesday the 14th of February. It is available off MNN's website as a live internet stream. (This link works only for Windows so Mac OS X users may want to try going to the main website and clicking on the "mms" link for popup player 57/85 (making sure you have Windows Media Components for QuickTime installed), but it only sometimes worked for me. I'll be watching this on Ristin's PC.) It will also appear some time in March on the Funday Pawpet show, which at least streams with a sensible codec.

I haven't seen it myself yet, but probably the best bit will be when I play with the cups and drop one.

Yes our show is still running and we are just about to reach our 24th anniversary...but it's on life-support now though, fighting just to stay alive.

That's an excellent question, Ristin. I'm glad you asked that. ^_^ Yes, there is something we can do to help. I'll discuss it with you when you get back from Ireland.

links dead :(

Which one? All the links seem to work for me. I had to test the link to the live internet feed on Ristin's computer.

Ah. It's fixed now. Sorry.

Yes sometimes the links go dead.

Make sure you connect to the WATCH MNN LIVE link that says 57/85 .

Life support could have a boost if all us Mac users could watch. The stream appears to be in one of those unsuported codecs wrapped in a WMV. Flip4Mac is excellent at streaming WMV, but there are some, like this one, that are weird and won't play. It would be nice if content providers could stick to some basic WMV encoding rules so they could all stream via F4M, and expand their audiences to Mac'ers.

I couldn't agree more, but there's nothing Rapid can do about it. At least Funday is streamed in a supported codec.

Oh, wow! Thank you so much! I certainly wasn't expecting it so soon. Even if I'm not very happy with my performance on it, I will be very proud to watch it with ristin.
