Ummm, good point to ponder. Again, I ask my stupid question...if people are selling off millions...somebody's buying them. Right? Well who? It must be an attractive stock to somebody!

Have a safe weekend!

Could my therory be correct that these guys are finding ways to bring this stock down? Then BAM, news is out regarding contracts?

Thank you Dakota. You're right, someone is buying them. And isn't shorting illegal? So do you think everyone that is buying now is losing money?? Technically yes BUT they're loading up.

I have seen something to interest the eye. Can someone help me post a chart here or a link to my chart? qbiddollar@yahoo.com

OR just look at the 1 yr. form a straight line angled up from the lowest level before the breakout, and then form a straight line down from the peaks to meet up with the other line you formed. The tip of the triangle is coming up but not for another few weeks and then another breakout should occur. We still could go as low as .74 but I dont think we'll close lower.

1BIGTIP. I called Comcast because I was tired of hearing people say I called and Comcast did hear of the Q, or I called and Comcast didn't hear of the Q. Like I said, the person who answered didn't hear about it, then she aked around and came back with yes they have gotten calls bout it, and that they have heard about it. I would not expect the people at comcast who answer the phones to know too much. Plus if Frank is under some contract not to speak until the carriers allow him, then I wouldn't expect these people at Comcast to say that they are airing it. Simply said, they don't know, they are the little people.

Try this when posting your link. Go to the chart that you want to share. Your browser should have an address line and the address of your chart should be indicated. Highlight the entire address. This is called cut and paste and if you know how to do it, disregard the following. (Hold down your control key and press the C key. Then come back to you allstocks screen, place cursor where you want the url to be, hold down the control key and press the V key. Be sure to either hit the return key after you removed the highlighting or the space bar. Now that I've told you this, let's see if it works for me. Quite honestly I've had trouble posting links here. http://www.plwp.org/
(This is a chenzy way of inviting you to my website. LOL)

i called my comcast (eastern pa area) cause i wondered if anyone really was calling.

the guy was nice, agreed yes that they (comcast) would be considered a carrier, and that yes they are equipped to receive a broadcast signal from q, but no they are not receiving anything from q television network. he has heard about it, but said there are no plans for the near future. i asked him about this launch since the 1st and he said that q didn't launch anything with comcast, but i can call back to order it if it ever does get picked up with comcast. sounds like the company line.

so all i can tell you is i ain't bogus, and they don't know (or aren't saying) anything. one thing i thought of after i hung up--the dude said i could call back in a week or two and see if they have it. so maybe the wheels are still turning, i don't know what else to tell you

Dakota. I know how to cut & paste. Its one of the first things I learned back in the 90's. The chart I have I was referring to a jpeg image which I had drawn the triangle for you. I was looking to just try to upload it somewhere - Doesn't matter I guess. Have a nice 4th! And light those fireworks in honor of our freedom!!

Someone saw Frank in Seattle. Read story here.
http://www.nuforc.org/webreports/037/S37747.html

Beautiful triangular craft moves quietly over Seattle, WA

I was out in front of my daughters home in Seattle June 20th, about 11:15pm the summer solstice in full effect, so the sky was illuminated dimly, clear sky. I was talking to my wife and daughter when I tilted my head back to stretch, and this triangular shape craft was moving from south to north direction, quietly,without much effort. I witnessed it for about 3 seconds, then it went behind the house and I lost contact. It was triangular in shape with a black leading edge, and lighter gray color inboard, with dim white lights at each corner of the lighter gray surface, I don,t know whats its elavation was, but I could see very good detail, about the size of 3/4 full moon. This machine was mechanically and materially beautiful, I have seen up close and in flight all kinds of aircraft,F-14s,F-15 eagles,F-16 falcons,B-1s,B-2s, B-52s, B-58 hustlers,SR-71s, but this craft sent chills up my spine,because of its triangular shape , mechanical and composite beauty. I do believe this is very similar to the sightings in 2000 & 2001 that I have seen and read about. I new what it was the second I saw it.

HAHAHHAHAH - so that is the triangle they saw in Seattle. Hmmm too bad it was not advertising for us. I guess we will leave it to Amazon Herb, Mikkee Sauce, Cafe Press and the Chocolates folks for now...

I printed your statement for myself and for Comcast. Please print my reply for your records. If you called and were connected to Comcast, why would you have to be looking up their phone# from Verizon? They have a great phone system--they can connect you. In contrast, when I called Comcast and spoke with a Comcast Customer Service Representative, I asked, "Is QTV available on Comcast?", the immediate response was "What is your zip code, I'll check to see if it is available to you." You don't need my zip code--but you know that too. Give them any zipcode, they know where they broadcast. Ask them which areas are included if you are interested in a specific area. The Comcast customer rep that I spoke with did not know the exact date (you said not in 45 days-where did that come from?). He said to watch for the mailing and call back then. QTV WILL BE BROADCAST ON COMCAST, but of course, you already know that.

As for recording calls, may means "permission", "calls may be recorded" not calls MAYBE recorded. I'm glad that my cable company takes inquiries and all calls seriously and responds in a professional manner--not "never heard of it!" as some others have posted as Comcast's response to their calls. Perhaps you called another provider by mistake. You didn't name the provider available in your zipcode area. Again, did you ask a Comcast Customer Representative if QTV is available on Comcast?



Wow ok - I did not realize I had to spoon feed my entire response to you. So here goes - hope it will make sense this time around. As for my "rambling" ... English is not my first or second language. So I apologize if it was not stated as eloquently as you may have preferred. While I do not spell huge – hugh ..please do excuse any grammatical and punctuation errors as well....never really got the hang of them...but I contribute that to me just being lazy.


"You did or did you not speak with and ask a Comcast representative "Is QTV available?" Your rambling response never mentions QTV--just a nice woman--Dale at ex 245 who says TCM is being added to __________."

-Yes I did speak to a Comcast representative (hopefully their own employees answer their phones and not say an employee from a competitor) and I did ask them if QTV is available. I went a little further to make sure that I conveyed the proper information across to her. I asked about different iterations in terms of Q Television and Q Television Network and finally 'its a gay and lesbian TV channel’ The response was that they had no news of one. The only new channel to be added to their lineup would be TCM - Turner Movie Classics...and that too it was to debut in September.

"I printed your statement for myself and for Comcast. Please print my reply for your records."

- Sorry I have no need to print your reply for my records. As for you printing my response for yourself and Comcast. Whatever floats your boat. If you choose to frame my responses or keep them with you wherever you go then who am I to complain? Hum aapke hain koun? (LOL) As for showing it to Comcast - Sure no problem be my guest. I have not stated anything different than what was conveyed to me.

"If you called and were connected to Comcast, why would you have to be looking up their phone# from Verizon? They have a great phone system--they can connect you."

- They have a great phone system? Wonderful - maybe they can provide some pointers to my cell phone service providers and my dropped calls. I do not see how that even matters here. Why was I looking up their phone number from verizon? Maybe you did not read my post correctly or maybe it was my "rambling" that stated the following: So I called the 800 number. I pressed 2 since Comcast is not in my area. I entered in this number: (215) 463-1100 obtained from the superpages listing at verizon for one of Comcast’s numbers.

- I will go into more detail here because I believe you still do not understand what happened. Please try and follow my logic here: I dialed the 1800 number you quoted in a previous message earlier tonight. The voice prompt system comes up and asks if I am calling from my home phone number to press 1. So I press 1. I am then informed that Comcast is not available in my area. So I hang up and dial again. This time I press 2. I am then asks to provide a phone number for where they would check again for service. Since I stated in my original message that Comcast is not in my area I needed to put in a number that was in their coverage zone so that I could get past the voice prompt system. Now I had a dilemma. What should I do now? I hang up and go to Comcast's webpage. After a few minutes I find the investor relations FAQ. Somewhere around there I found out they were based in Philly. So armed with that important knowledge I decided to go to Big Yellow. This is where one can pull up numbers for US businesses nationwide. I looked up Comcast in Philadelphia, PA. I picked the (215) 463-1100 that was listed as one of their non 800 direct line numbers. My thinking was that if they are based out of there they should provide service in that area no? Moving right along, I take this number and enter it into the phone call after prompt number 2. After holding I got Dale on the phone. Ta-daa!


"In contrast, when I called Comcast and spoke with a Comcast Customer Service Representative, I asked, "Is QTV available on Comcast?" the immediate response was "What is your zip code, I'll check to see if it is available to you." You don't need my zip code--but you know that too.

- Sorry but I do not recall ever asked for your zip code. Could you please show me where I did ask for it? As for the "but you know that too" - What are you trying to imply there? Am I trying to deliberately hide something and not putting it out for the rest of us? Why? Because I enjoy seeing my own QBID value tank?

"Give them any zip code, they know where they broadcast. Ask them which areas are included if you are interested in a specific area. The Comcast customer rep that I spoke with did not know the exact date (you said not in 45 days-where did that come from?). He said to watch for the mailing and call back then.

- The 45 days ... I quote my original post again: She also stated that customers in the area would know of a new channel being advertised 45 days in advance.

- What that means is that any new channel coming to the area is known and advertised 45 days in advance of its actual broadcast in that area. Currently as stated by Dale the only new channel being added to the lineup in that area is TCM. So my last line in my previous message: Either way - these guys are not offering it - at least not in the next 45 days - was to mean that if they provide a 45 day advance notification of a channel being added and if they do not have any information for our channel then it would be at least 45 days away right? Maybe they could add it earlier and say even put it into the carrier stream tonight! But I doubt it. Then again stranger things have happened...some even on the QBID threads on allstocks.


" QTV WILL BE BROADCAST ON COMCAST, but of course, you already know that. "

- Sorry not based on my call with Dale tonight ...but of course I already know that….


"As for recording calls, may means "permission", "calls may be recorded" not calls MAYBE recorded."

- I did not say that they 'maybe recorded'. My original statement: As for the they record all calls. I doubt it - maybe a sample of the calls throughout the day for "quality assurance" - *maybe* a sample of the calls. I have installed and configured call center equipment. I actually have employees that are currently deployed for call center duty at a few different companies. All of them state some sort of standard disclaimer for the recording of phone calls to ensure customer satisfaction and to even evaluate the employees on how they do on the phone. The only thing I was stating was that I doubt they record *ALL* of the calls. Economically it is not all that viable to do so.

"I'm glad that my cable company takes inquiries and all calls seriously and responds in a professional manner--not "never heard of it!" as some others have posted as Comcast's response to their calls."

- I am happy for the love that you have for your cable company. If some others have stated ‘never heard of it’ as the basic response could it not be taken as “Sorry ma’am but I have never heard of it!” … is that really all that unprofessional? I am guessing the professional manner in which you were treated is the norm throughout your entire cable company? I am impressed. With their thousands of employees they have accomplished something that we can not even seem to do here on Allstocks. Then again they get paid to do so right? Hey all you paid pumpers and bashers – can you at least act professional please?

“Perhaps you called another provider by mistake. You didn't name the provider available in your zipcode area. Again, did you ask a Comcast Customer Representative if QTV is available on Comcast?”

- No sorry I did not call another provider by mistake.
- I did not name the provider available in my zipcode area? Was I supposed to? Did I miss something again? I stated in the beginning of my previous ‘rambling’ that Comcast was not available in my area. A few pages earlier before rutti1’s post streak of 91 posts since being registered for only one day ended I stated that I spoke to the GM of the Insight Communications operation in Kentucky. That is where I am located. They currently have no plans to offer it or even decide to offer it as it has not been made available to them.
- Did I ask if QTV was available on Comcast – well I did ask if it was available. I would hope they would only tell me about their own cable system and not say their competitors such as Cox or TCI or Americast etc.

Hi friends!

I've got a situaion and would appreciate some feedback.
Yesterday I planned on selling about half my shares. Things got really messed up with the lots I selected to sell, an Etrade screw up. So, I sold all to avoid an accounting nightmare. Figured it would be easier to start over at that point, and based on the charts I did't expect this to explode upwards unless there's a PR. QBID shares were all gone when I logged out of Etrade yesterday.

Now here's the interesting part. This morning when I logged in there were 422,000 shares in my account with market value. AND, there were another 422,000 QBID shares that were shorted, balancing the value of the othr QBID shares. I've never shorted any stock and know I can't short pennies. When I asked Etrade coustomer service reps about shares, they seemed confused and claimed it would be off my portfolio by this weekend. Is it possible that some of my shares had been shorted and they didn't want to cover yet or just a very unusual mistake?
They (422,000 - 422,000)are still there. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

I'm still hoping that QTN is successful, and will be ready to jump back in.

Good luck!

DZ

Just for the record, I was the one that asked for Suz zipcode, since it seems to be the only area that is carrying Q (LOL). Obviously, she has dodged that question all day, until she finally flat out said she would not post it. By the way Suz, thank you for finally saying you would not post it, you made your point very clear to me, and probably many others. You're full of crap and just another pumper who can't do their job correctly. If your going to post something like a conversation with a cable rep, you need to include all the information for someone to follow up on it, which you did not. Unlike others who said that Comcast told them to check back in a couple weeks and that they were not carrying Q now, but had heard of it, you specifically said that you were told Comcast is carrying Q.
Sharkus, thanks again for actually making the call to follow up on her phony call.

Denzen, check this out:

I put in a sell order for a block of shares last month and the price kept dropping, ignoring my order. So I cancelled my sell and replaced it with a new lower sell, which went through. No problem, right?

Well, the NEXT DAY, lord knows how, but the MM decided to put my cancelled order through. Can you believe it? So I was now shorting this stock that is not allowed to be shorted.

My account had thou$ands added to it, but it said I had negative shares which I now needed to buy to cover. Luckily the stock had tanked, so I said screw it and jumped on that sell button. LOL Nice try! Scottrade wouldn't let me do it, which is further proof that it should have never been shorted to begin with.

So I called and they confirmed what happened and said they would buy to cover for me. A minute later it was over and I actually got to keep the profit!!! Believe me, if the pps had gone up I would've raised hell!

I know this is on a long weekend and no one will even see this, being in the middle of nothing happening, but do you think that the Q is broadcasting music videos??? If not, maybe they can use this as part of their 8 hours that is allegedly broadcasting now. Check this link out.

Denzen,

I have had this happen with Etrade as well - it clearly appears to be a mistake on their part. Although it can take a day or two (or 3!) they will clear it up for you without any problem.

My experience with Etade has been very positive. Not the case, sadly, with Ameritrade.

was browsing the fcc and found frank and rene back at the end of 97 as triangle.

don't know what it means. if anything they've been together this long. is frank a closet dude with a squeeze???

triangle (frank and rene both named) took over washington broadcast management in 1997. studio and all from what i can see. don't know if this has already been posted or not--if it has...sorry for the repeat. point is that triangle was (is) a broadcast co., and provided all the programming for washington broadcast mgmt--according to the fcc.

just info---make what you will of it.
not bashing or pumping.....researching.

Hi friends!

I've got a situaion and would appreciate some feedback.
Yesterday I planned on selling about half my shares. Things got really messed up with the lots I selected to sell, an Etrade screw up. So, I sold all to avoid an accounting nightmare. Figured it would be easier to start over at that point, and based on the charts I did't expect this to explode upwards unless there's a PR. QBID shares were all gone when I logged out of Etrade yesterday.

Now here's the interesting part. This morning when I logged in there were 422,000 shares in my account with market value. AND, there were another 422,000 QBID shares that were shorted, balancing the value of the othr QBID shares. I've never shorted any stock and know I can't short pennies. When I asked Etrade coustomer service reps about shares, they seemed confused and claimed it would be off my portfolio by this weekend. Is it possible that some of my shares had been shorted and they didn't want to cover yet or just a very unusual mistake?
They (422,000 - 422,000)are still there. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

I'm still hoping that QTN is successful, and will be ready to jump back in.

Good luck!

It is very likely that you have stumbled onto a "shorting" of shares situation. I no longer use E*TRADE but have seen incidents where I have held a stock for a period of time, and when I go to sell the stock, I receive a message "You may or may not own the shares" you have selected to sell.

hmmmmmmmmm. I am currently using an attorney to straighten out a problem with E*TRADE concerning CMKM forward stock split which occurred on Sept. 12th, 2003. Always check your Acct. history with this broker also as I have found multiple discrepencies between the recorded transactions on E*TRADE between "Individual Fills" file and the "Executed Transactions" file. Poor bookkeeping on E*TRADE's part. Stay on top of them as they will not always fix their errors and it is up to you to be aware of your account at all times. Good Luck.

They have a ten year contract with Time-Warner, yet they are not carrying the network? Doesn't make sense.
Have we heard from ONE person who has successfully contacted a company who IS carrying QTelevison? This is depressing.

Booty Quest, SMC, and Dardadog,
thankyou for your responses and the opportunity to look at this situation from various prespectives, based on your different experiences. I know, it's probably no big deal, but it's always better to have greater insight into unknown activities. Especially when it involves my account.

Thanks again for responding!
DZ

from talking to my local cable company (comcast) it really doesn't look like a full launch is possible till the fall programing as it seems the contracts are not signed yet. this is not to say it won't happen. i think the pr stating a july launch was just hopefull dreaming we may have launched and the signal may be floating for any carrier to broadcast but to get to the point where someone is billed for recieving it takes contracts with carriers and this is an area frank has no control on. they will do as they want when they want. if the cable companies feel there is a big demand then it will speed up the prossess. my guess is it will be released in a few test markets, places with some gay population but not somewhere like san fran. this will give the cable co.'s an idea of the % of the gay population willing to pay monthly to recieve Q. if the numbers are good then they will expand the area's into bigger markets. the reason is that the market for this channel will be only 5% of the broadcast area they service. in some areas more in some less. they will have to get 20% of that 5% to make it a money making channel. and if its not going to make money its not going to be there. i believe it is something that will be tested because of the want by the gay population and because of the buying power the gay pop. has. i believe the cable companies are looking to entire this market and q falls right into the catagory they want to fill veiw on demand or a "if you want to watch it you pay to see it channel" that way any advertizing dollars are a bonus

Hi Bill,
I take it from your post that you are in the San Fran area like me (Oakland) and that they told you that they aren't carrying Q anytime soon ? Just wondering, as I was planning to call local Comcast on Tuesday after the holiday weekend and ask them as well. Is the rest of your post, about test markets and such, something you derived from speaking to Comcast directly, or just your own thoughts? In my (albeit optimistic) mind I would have thought that since the GL tv phenomenon is the hottest thing on TV these days that the cable companies would not try it out in the proverbial "Pasadena" markets first, but that they'd be more eager to shoot first and ask questions later in the big markets, given that the subject matter is so hot right now. That's just an opinion, I don't really know how they think. But I do know that when I flip through my Comcast digital channels there are scores of empty channels waiting to be filled up, and to my mind not "trying out" a broadcasting GLBT channel on one of them just to see if anyone bites, in today's gay-hungry tv climate, is like the 1950's toy shop owner having an empty front window and a back room full of hula hoops, afraid to put them on display. What is there to lose? I can't figure this one out, where the problem lies, but it's getting hard for me to believe that it's because the cable company, especially in this area of the country, isn't interested in carrying the first broadcast GLBT network as soon as it's available.
Once again, just my own random thoughts.
"We shall see what we shall see..."

Have a happy, safe 4th !!!

Hi all,

Seems to me Bill1352's saying corresponds with the previous post (test market in some areas only):

called last night (and slept well). A sharp young man (David, ex 4416) asked my zip code and said that the mailings for QTV in my area are being prepared and wanted me to upgrade to HD and other features when I call in my order….. He gave me his extension number (twice) to be sure that he gets the commission when I order (he will). Did anyone ever really expect the competiton to offer QTV before they get their network on the air in 05? If so, I have some property, and I'll give you a great deal on it today…… Don't forget to call Comcast----we really launched--not everywhere. . . . yet.

hey guys just got off of the phone with a service rep with comcast in seattle washington. right now the channel is available for preview on channel 15 KHVC. She also informed me that they in the customer service dept have yet to hear whether or not the channel will be picked up but if they are previewing it then they likely will. Also she was under the understanding that the channel will be free and will not have to be paid for. That didn't make sense to me since frank olsen said that it would cost $2 a month for the channel. I'm sure she was just a little mixed up there. The number is 1-877-824-2288. BTW Don't tell them QTV...she and her coworkers had no idea what that was but once i said Q Television Network she knew right away.

All we need is a PR from QTV that let us know which areas launched. Granted not the entire US saw the launch (if it ever did) but most metro areas like Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia and the likes should have seen it and cable cos. should have heard about it. It would be really funny if they launched in the midlle of the fields of Nebraska, Arkansas, Omaha, etc. It would still be considered a lanuch but did it serve the purpose?
