While I am no expert on such matters, I don't think this will work. Believe it or not, I do not think the folks who set up the subscription service for C2C are that technically naive. When I joined, I read the rules, and it stated that I could access the streamlink only from 2 host computers. When you subscribe, it creates a cookie on your PC that it uses to verify your log-in. So if you were to have an ID/Password and then tried to use 10 different PCs, they would not work because only 2 cookies are allowed for each ID/Password. More than that would be disallowed.

Again, I may not be describing this right because I am not highly technical. Nonetheless, I wanted to post this proviso because somewhere here I read about people contemplating sharing 1 ID/Password among a group of people. It may work, but I suspect it won't unless that entire group used the same PC. If you really want to hear the show that badly, it may be worth it to just pay the subscription. Frankly, I am finding the guests and topics so boring and repetitive recently that the old excitement is gone. It is hard to believe that in the late 90's when Art Bell was still in charge, I'd really feel that I might have missed something crucial if I didn't listen in each night. Of course, Art really was a good salesman and he kept us thinking we were really on the verge of great discoveries together, putting the pieces together to crack the UFO secret and other mysteries. In retrospect, I see it was all showmanship on his part, and most of the guests that I once thought on the cutting edge (e.g., Richard Hoagland, Linda Moulton Howe, and even Sean David Morton) are now on my personal cutting room floor. They did not stand up over time and went sour like a quart of milk left on the counter too long. WTF is hyperdimensional physics, by the way? Did Hoagland ever rival Einstein by creating a coherent theory instead of using that term to explain anything inexplicable?

Once I realized Art didn't really "believe" in much of what he presented, any more than a circus freakshow huckster believes in the 2 headed mummy, then the magic was gone. There was no "truth out there" to be discovered, just one eccentric or snake oil salesman after another. Since Art left full time, C2C has added right wing fundamentalist preachers, priests and creationists to the portfolio. When Pat Buchanon was on, I thought "this is truly the end. Now C2C is becoming just another right wing talk show. Next I suppose Rush Limbaugh will be a guest, then maybe Sean Hannity or perhaps Ann Coulter."

Man, Ann Coulter would eat George Noory alive and spit out the bones!!!! :lol:

Now THAT would be a dream couple! :shock:

Whether or not it is technically feasible, it's also probably not a good idea to discuss such things out in the open.

For precautionary measures, I am going to discard of that thread that was discussing this concept and suggest that all such discussion be conducted via PM.

Sorry to be a paranoid douche, but we don't need trouble.

No, of course not.

I just want to be sure that we cover our ass.
