    Has anyone found a video of the opening ceremony in it's entirety on the web? I missed it last night coz I had to work. And I forgot to set my dvr... :frown: And for some reason NBC, who covered it, dosn't even have it on their website. Youtube files have been pulled... I've seen highlights and they were awesome. I wanna see the whole thing...

    I've been working tonight so haven't paid much attention. I had it on in the background, but couldn't keep up with it because I had a lot of work tonight.

    Thank you, but I actually already loaded that antivirus to my reformatted vista laptop. Some one had already suggested it to me. Didn't bother with mcafee. It already failed me... Got any suggestions as to what other software would be great to run alongside avg 8 free edition? I tried spybot but it keeps crashing.

    PM me if you have time. Don't wanna hijack this thread.

    anybody watch the boxing matches? is it me or is the scoring partial, and very flawed? some head shots dont count, body shots dont matter at all, knockdowns dont score points....i think its a little corrupted and flawed

    My dad who watches a ton of boxing says he can't stand olympic style boxing. I got bored after 2 rounds of a match. I think the scoring is flawed in several categories though. The Gymnasicts and Diving are just odd how they are scored. You can have 2 people with the same routine with identicle mistakes and yet they have a point difference.

    scoring & boxing should not be in one sentence..

    fight till a K.O. is my credo :}
