Hello World!

Could anyone tell me why the United States is so amazingly huge? For SlipstreamWeb, I've been working recently on emailing all the television stations airing 'Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda', which is turning out to be quite a bit more work than expected, with over a 100 television stations. It's interesting to see the differences between the various stations - some, mostly in small towns, have a site which still looks like a hobby project from the assistant programming manager, while others are extremely professional sites with their own dedicated webmasters. What almost every single one steadfastedly refuses to do, however, is provide any information at all about when they'll be airing Andromeda, despite lots of info on their network series. Say what you want about UPN and the lower ratings it provides for Star Trek compared to syndication, but at least with a network it's easy to find out when a show is airing.
