    early this morning saw the bbc engineers turn off the analog signal during news 24 and have everyone's favourite scary game of oXo - from a friend who likes these sort of things - "...at 2am BBC2, 4:10am BBC1 (analogue only) there'll be a full hour of scary clowne, teh girl with teh frozen game of OXO, and a dismembered computer voice. Watch the picture degrade at certain points throughout the hour as they turn off the main feeds and the transmitters have to feed off each other. Oh yes."..

    I'm partial to Test Card A. It reminds of a game of pong, all it's missing is a bouncing blip.

    I just put 'geekgazzed' into google, and only two entries came up, both for this page...

    The test card for programming for schools just made me freak out, I remember having to see that most weeks at junior school...
