I don't understand the attention that is devoted to U know who.
I have lots of questions

What part of that is not obvious?
What is in it for him?
Why does he spend all of this time posting here?
Why does anyone buy/sell stocks?
Of course he sprinkles in a few facts--that's the bait, isn't it?
He has a game plan and he is sticking to it. If it works, why should he fix it?
Why enable him to manipulate our investment?
Who is controlling whom?
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Perhaps you see my reasoning as way off the mark. If so, please respond and explain it for me.
You actually think that U4 is making this stock go down by talking **** on allstock. If you believe all this whole basher pumper thing; majority the posters here would be pumpers. These pumpers have no evidence, so they are essentialy lieing just like you say U4 is.

Did I say that he was making this stock go down?
No, I just said that he gets what he wants as the reason that he posts here.
My original question was why give him the attention that he wants.
Based on his "RogerDoger" history, I questioned why anyone would repond to his post.
What I "actually think" is that your response is very revealing.
As fo the pumper/dumpers thing, I have personally read links (that were removed by the board administator) from groups with views that oppose this stock.
I'm as certain of their existence as I am of "lying" being misspelled as"lieing".

someone mentioned the idea that no big news till after buy back is done. this might be a bit shareholder unfriendly in the short term but it does help the buy back by not causing a quick run. i'm guessing here but the only news we will get between now & then is rcn up and running fully. if there are new carriers they probably will not launch till nov. anyway. remember the pr the first of the year said they were looking at a buy back plan not starting one.

Dont scared people, this is a good thing with the conference call because prs can be doctored, this will give us a chance to see how strong our ceo is, when we put a little fire on him, who knows maybe u4 will call him and grill him a bit. for me i can wait till the end of the month, this seems better than a pr. I want it straight from Frank.
just called RCN told them i was moving to NY, probably queens (no pun intended) and i was wondering if they serviced all area's then asked about Q, the lady said as she understood it yes sometime during Oct. it would be up & running in NY and as she understood it it was running in SF. bad news was she had not had any calls about it.

I think this conference call is going to be "hularious". Anyone who has spoken to Frank knows how he talks. U4's refernces to him being drunk are an example. He always sounds like he's had a few, and he speaks very brass. Kind of like a truckdriver. I have spoken to him on a few occassions, and if you mention anything negative to him, he gets very defensive and starts cursing every other word. He better learn how to speak to people between now and then. I'm not trying to bash, but anyone who has spoken to him knows what I am saying. If 1 basher gets on there and gets to ask a question, it will set Frank off. This call should be "hularious".
P.S. Mr./Mrs. Allstocks lots of words are being mispelled on here. Many laughs!

here ya go. Direct link to audio is at bottom.
Frank's Interview Corrected Word for Word -- The other one had a few errors. ------------- Good day this is Michael Wachs with CEOcast. I’m here today with Frank Olson. Frank is president and Chief Executive officer of Q Television Network, a company that trades over the counter under the pink sheet symbol QBID. One that was organized to create and develop a network devoted to providing television programming to the gay & lesbian community. Thanks for joining CEOcast today Frank.
FO: Thank you for having me.
MW: I thought perhaps you can begin with the overview of the company and then we’ll get into the programming and why this is so well suited for its audience.
FO: Well first thing the company has been tailor made for the gay community. We’ve been working on this for 11 years. This is not an overnight project, it’s an 11 year project. We have 70% of our money is private money that was invested in the company and the rest of the money is from stock sales. The company is a pink sheet which we plan on taking forward reporting. We’re in the process of doing that, we’ve made some mistakes and bought a shell which wasn’t as clean as we hoped it would be but now we got it straightened out over the last 5 years and now I think we’ll going to be reporting probably within 6 months to a year. 6 months. It’s going to take at least 6 months to finish that.
MW: As you look at the audience now, why is your content so well suited for it?
FO: Well because see, our content, I should give you a little bit of my experience. I’ve owned television stations for 30 years and I had 17 gay bars. So I know the gay community, I had the first black radio network and I’ve been specializing with minority broadcasting all my life. Native American broadcasting, all kinds of minority niched market broadcast. So by owning gay bars I’ve learned about the gay community. How diversified they were and what you had to do to make a television station for them. And that was not making a bunch of sitcoms and making the gay person the odd ball. Gay people do not buy gay toothpaste, you have to understand that. They buy fords, they buy crest, and they live and they’re only gay in their bedroom and the rest of the time they’re normal regular people that live a gay lifestyle and they have gay families. Most gay people just because they are out of the age of 30 have a partner, an invested partner and they have long relationships, probably because they’re not under the pressure of being married. (laughs)
MW: Frank what about the content itself, what kind of content do you provide?
FO: Ok, first thing we have a 3 hour block in the evening that’s repeated 3 times. It starts out with a gay interactive talk show that anybody from any place in the world can call us up and we can put you on television through your web cam and we’ve done some special technology that they used in Iraq and we boost up the signal so its not perfect for the person that is calling in but they are on television and you can see them very well and it’s a call in talk show and it will talk about gay issues and one day it will be fun, there’s 3 hosts of lesbian comedians, stand up comedians, And 2: 1 person has the longest running gay radio talk show which has been going on for 19 years, David Crest. Then we have Chris Fox which is another radio DJ but he’s been in several movies and some sitcoms and he will be the other host.
The 3 host that will address 3 plasma screen and will be a two hour talk show. One screen for the mid-America , one screen for the west coast, and one screen for the east coast. You’ll be able to call from any place on your webcam. Or you’ll be able to go to Kinkos which has a national teleconference system that the picture comes in very clear which will be able to bring in guests from all over the world and they go to Kinkos and they’ll be able to call and be able to get gay issues out on the table immediately. Gay people are very issue oriented.
The next show that comes on the 3 hour block is the gay events show that tells what happening out in the world of gay and it basically shows movies and film clips and its kind of a fun out and about show. Then we go to a gay sports show, I have the only gay transgender sports caster in the country. Used to be on ABC, I don’t know what name she used on ABC but now she has a man so now she is Jack E Jett and she does the sports behind the sports. And then we go to gay movies, gay plays, and then in the morning we do the lesbian show this is copy after the view called woman on woman it’s a strip show 5 days a week.
On weekends we do a tech show that shows where all the gay website are and then we buy some programming.
We just signed a contract with the gay Olympics in 2006, a multi million dollar contract. We have all the broadcast rights, all the network rights, and the line feed rights. So we’ll be able to send it all the over the world, if anybody wants it they have to get it from us. That we just signed yesterday.
We’ll be doing gay rodeos, we’re going to be following the gay community all over the country and that’s what’s different from every other station; we’re going to bring the gay community together. Person in Atlanta will finally get to see the Halloween parade in west Hollywood live on our station.
MW: Frank, what about advertiser and your advertising and your revenue base.
FO: Revenue base comes from 2 places. We charge $7.95 which we split with the cable companies and that is for 2 reasons. 1, we want to give the cable company some inducement to take us but also we want to be invited in the home. We want to be scrambled; we don’t want to force our agenda on anybody. This is very important because I’ve been married, I was married for 29 years and I have grandchildren and I do not want my grandchildren to ask me why two men are kissing on television; an 8 & 9 year olds. Come and ask me that. When they’re 12 I’ll sit there and tell them all about the facts of life. But I’m not going to have them; you know kids act out what they see on television. Now I’m a gay person, openly gay now, but they don’t need to know that right now; kids get to much force on them they don’t need to have that force on them, so we’re going to be scrambled.
The next revenue base comes from advertisers, we limit our advertiser down to, you ever picked up a gay magazine, we call them "Gay Rags", and if you’ll notice in gay rags there’s several fortune 500 companies that advertise in those but they really don’t like to advertise in those because they want to get to the gay community but they don’t like who advertising with because the next page is escort services and gay bars and strip joints and things like that. So we are not above these. Our ratings are TV14 and we don’t go any higher. So we give them a nice, safe place to advertise where the straight person doesn’t know they’re advertising and so they will not lose to, remember we have to deal with 13%. 13 - 10% Gay, 3% curious. Then we have the 33% religious community so advertisers have to be very careful they don’t want to lose more then they’re gaining.
The gay families have a 600 billion dollar a year disposal income. Advertisers want a big chunk of that especially people like American Express, Carnival tours, travel agencies, and beverage companies, and computer companies. They love to get into that money but they don’t want to offend anybody, so that’s why we’re scrambled and so we run a limited run of advertisers. We do not break movies, we do not break gay plays, we do not break some events, but we do break sports events, the talk show, we break talking head show and things like that. So we average about 8 minutes an hour instead of 18 minutes an hour.
MW: What should investors now look for in the coming quarters in terms of key developments from the company.
FO: Well we’re building 3 studios we’ll be all over the country and it will cut our expenses down. We’ve moved all our production facilities in Fort Worth, Texas because of the talent Fort Worth has and the pricing is so much cheaper, so we’ll be able to live within our budget and start growing to be a money making company. We should be showing profit within 12-13 months. And we should be off the penny stocks, I would say in a year we will be on an exchange, I don’t which one yet we’re having advisories and lawyers and everyone getting into that. But we’re a growing stable company; we have plenty of financing, plenty of money available to carry us 3 years if we don’t make a dime. But I think we’ll be making money within a year. Right now we’re building up programming, we’re building up studios, and we are spending money. That’s where we’re at.
MW: Well I’ve been speaking today with Frank Olson, Frank is President and Chief Executive officer of Triangle Multimedia Limited a company that trades over the counter under the symbol QBID and one that is owner of the Q Television Network. Frank thanks for joining CEOcast today.
I know, I was just using a line from everyones good friend Mr. Bung. I could honestly care less about the way people spell.

The same reason the cheerleaders never do either. Pure speculation and wishful thinking. Unfortunately this is a result of QTN's non-reporting status. We can guess all day long a the number of shares but never know. Even the numbers released in various PRs could be completely made up since there's no way for anyone to verify.

Ok, I will need everyone’s help here because I will not have time to do this. Frank and Rene have asked me to ask shareholders(myself as well) why we see things different and fill as if we are in the dark. They asked me to pull up all the PR’s in the last year and find out what issues we have with the company. For example, The April PR, announcing buyback with an O/S 7.5, then the dramatic increase. The website, etc. If people can start from the jan 1st, untill now with issues, things can be addressed.
RE conference call. Frank and Rene will speak for 30 minutes and open the floor to about 30 minutes of questions.
I was asked if we wanted Rene speaking on the company’s behalf. I think that this should be petition and a list given so that we talk with Rene vs Frank.
All issues...things that we want changed or added on the website. Programming, etc...etc
thanks..... Markjohnson555@hotmail....i will not be responding to people email , i will be posting the info on the board so that we can agree to what should be given to the company and as well a list of questions to be given for the conference.
I vote that we send U4 in there on our behalf. I am sure he will address all the issues without fail and to the point. Just hope he remembers to bring his calculator to address funding, operation cost, projected revenue and subscribers. U4, has my vote!
