I remember when I was little, none of them even broadcast anything this late! I remember the days of Station Shutdown and programming beginning only at 6am.

Not fair!
Whenever I bitch about how shit Aussie Internet is, I remind myself "at least I'm not in New Zealand these days".

My father's a stinge and still uses dialup because the costs of Kiwi DSL piss him off.

Didn't the guy who slept in the TV station put the cat out before everything went off the air?

I have no idea if you're actually referencing something as I was never allowed up that late. But I always rose early. I'd be up around 5:50am and watch the last of the Teletext filler before the cartoons began at 6am.

Meanwhile, in South Korea, some guy just downloaded half the porn on the Internet in 3.5 seconds.

Bugger!

I'm led to believe the guy who lived in the TV station - i think it was just a big satellite dish - would go all the way downstairs to put the cat out, and by the time he got back upstairs the cat was sitting back on the bed.




Was it the Goodnight Kiwi? I can't remember now.

This actually does ring a faint bell, but probably just from being told about it. I don't think I was ever allowed up past about 8-9pm. So that meant I'd wake around 5:30-6am all the time. I remember during the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, Channel One would start its programming every day by doing some montage with the Kiwi anthem over the top. That's when I first learnt the words to the anthem in Maori (now that I think about it, I think this montage had just the Maori version).

With great difficulty, one would imagine.

I just hope they don't roll over like Bangalore did yesterday against Kolkata.
