I DID THE BEST I COULD TO COMPILE COMLETE INFORMATION ON TRIANGLE MULTI MEDIA (QBID). MY THOUGHTS WERE THAT IF SOMEONE WANTED TO SEND INFORMATION TO A FELLOW TRADER OR E-MAIL AS INFORMATIONAL PACKET TO ENLIGHTEN THEM TO THE OPPORTUNITY INVOLVED IN QBID, THEY COULD DO SO WITH MINIMAL EFFORT. I ALSO BELIEVE THE LAST THREAD WAS VERY LONG AND ALTHOUGH COMPLETE, HARD FOR A NEW TRADER TO COME IN AND GET THE QUICK LOW DOWN. I NAMED IT TRIANGLE MULTI MEDIA (QBID) #4 BECAUSE THIS IS THE 4th THREAD.
YOU MAY QUESTION WHAT IS ON THIS BOARD BUT THERE IS NO HYPE OR LIES.
OF COURSE THERE IS SPECULATION, HOPES AND DREAMS. THAT IS A GIVEN.
THE FACTS ARE HERE. IF THE NETWORK IS LAUNCHED IT WILL BE INCREDIBLE AND ALL OUR LIVES WILL BE BLESSED.
IF IT DOES NOT LAUNCH WE WILL ALL HIT THE SELL BUTTON AND MOVE ON TO ANOTHER HOPEFUL STOCK. THOSE ARE THE FACTS.
THIS IS NOT A "BUY THIS YOU ARE GOING TO BE RICH" THREAD. THIS IS A THREAD OF THE POTENTIAL LAUNCHING OF A GAY/LESBIAN T.V. NETWORK.
WILL IT OR WILL IT NOT? I PAWNED MY CRYSTAL BALL TO BUY QBID. THE TIME THE PLACE AND POLITICAL SITUATION IS GOOD. WE ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME. STILL NO GUARANTEE'S. THAT'S THE FACTS. READ THE THREAD AND DO YOUR DD. VERY IMPORTANT.
THIS IS A GAMBLE NOT AN INVESTMENT. YOU ARE SITTING AT THE BLACKJACK TABLE AND THE DEALER HAS A BREAK CARD SHOWING. YOU HAVE A SOFT 17. DO YOU DOUBLE DOWN?
BY THE WAY IT MAY TURN INTO AN INVESTMENT. RIGHT NOW IT IS A GAMBLE. IMHO JUST LIKE ALL PENNY STOCKS.
WANT TO THROW OUT A THANKS TO DA MAN WHO STARTED THE 1ST THREAD. YOU KNOW I LOVE YA AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!! RUFF RUFF

===> 8 July 03: From an article at Gay.com ... The plan, first announced by Showtime/MTV in Nov 02, to launch an all-gay, 24-hour cable television channel by the Spring of 03 has been placed on hold indefinitely, allegedly due to the poor state of the economy. After launch, this appears to allow TTN to lay claim to the title "First 24/7 gay TV network in the U.S."
===> 7 July 03: (Revised): There is evidence now, via persons communicating with TW, of TTN trying to arrange a first wave of simultaneous separate PRs issued through multiple local TW marketing units from around the country. Since there would be logistical complexities in getting this to all play together, a few extra days of delay in getting the PRs out should not be unexpected. See also http://ragingbull.lycos.com/mboard/boards.cgi?board=QBID&read=70048 . In the meantime, "Pay Per View" and rival "Direct TV" have fired a shot (of sorts) across TWC's (and TTN's) bow: http://www.amtdrt.inlumen.com/bin/story?StoryId=CpWJWqbKbytu0otu
===> 4 July 03: At a time when the summer heat is still heading in the upward direction, it seems intriguing that TMM is suddenly reversing itself by switching back to regular-season hours! It was only a short time ago that the company announced that it had scaled back to reduced hours for the summer (not unusual for P.S. businesses during the hot months). Yet, today's updated after hour phone recording states that TMM's "new" summertime hours will be 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM starting next Monday, 7 July.
===> 2 July 03: Triangle Multi Media President and CEO Frank Olsen gives audio interview on "Wall Street Reporter." Highlights 10 year, multi-city deal for TV carriage via Time Warner Cable, potential for retail product spinoffs, as well as goal to be listed on an exchange by end of 2004: http://www.******************.com/linked/TRIANGLEMULTIMEDIA.html
===> 1 July 03: June 20-26 article affirms that popular actor and producer-director Bob Poirier (AKA Bobby Roger) is coming back to help spearhead TTN launch: http://www.portlandphoenix.com/television/documents/02958184.asp
===> 30 June 03: Amazing 737 million shares traded today! Intraday high upticked to $0.0003. Next best chance for first round of PR's seems to be immediately after the upcoming 4th of July weekend. Meanwhile, check out today's AOL TW's "Opportunity Investment Fund" announcement. http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/030630/305395_1.html .Could one of the upcoming PR's be similar to this but with Triangle's name in it?
===> 27 June 03: Now prominently posted on Triangle's web sites: ON QBID SITE: <><> "Qbid takes Pride in the announcement of TTN, inc., in which Qbid has a vested interest, concerning their relationship with Time Warner Cable. For further information please see TTN's website at http://www.triangletelevisionnetwork.com " ... and ON TTN SITE: <><> "TTN PROUDLY ANNOUNCES A 10 YEAR NATIONAL CONTRACT WITH TIME WARNER CABLE. Target Cities and Launch Dates are currently being reviewed and will be announced soon. Watch For Further Announcements." <><> In the meantime, just two days ago a U.S. Supreme Court decision was handed down that overthrew Texas' anti sodomy law that was being used to discriminate against gay couples. And just a few days before that, Canada legalized same sex marriages. Certainly we are at a point in history where acceptance of gay rights is accelerating and is in the forefront of the news. Is the order and close timing of the above events a complete coincidence, or is there something more going on here? The scope and (arguably) almost urgent tone of TTN's post sure seems to be signaling the possiblity that TW has now abruptly entered a "get TTN on the air around the country without delay" mode.
===> 23 June 03: PR on 24 or 25 JUNE? Two callers reaching separate people at the company, and reporting on another board, are told there might be a PR tomorrow or Wednesday. Huge volume uptick today to over 97 million shares; price jump at end of day to close at $0.0002!
===> 21 June 03: IMPORTANT POSITIVE BREAKTHROUGH HAS APPARENTLY BEEN REACHED WITH TW IN ONLY LAST DAY OR TWO that will permit the release of considerably more information on the contractual relationship between TW and TTN. A PR may come out the week of 23 June that could reveal this relationship publicly for the first time. If so, the PR will likely also reveal fresh evidence of TW's attempts to get TTN launched at the first opportunity. This could finally mark the beginning of very exciting times for TTN (and for QBID Shareholders). Question:...Could news a couple of days ago proclaiming that same sex marriages in Canada are now legal have anything to do with what is happening?
