    So the House gets the former NASA officials talking about the past and the Senate gets the current NASA officials talking about the future. I guess both will get to hear what they want to hear.

    Yes look at the archived hearing. I was thinking, I guess, Bridenstine would be on NASA TV which Dish has, but not HD and if no heavy rain. I can stream U-Tube with DSL, but not HD. I did find a way to double my download save to file speed. Start download save. Go to another page. The download will continue. Firefox or Chrome will double download if you don’t. It down loads to run what you are watching and downloads the file at the same time. I was getting 123kbs., but downloading a file I was getting half that. I moved to another page and it said 123-400KBS., but timing it came out to 123KBS. Sorry for the long post. Maybe everyone knows this except I.

    My condolences on being limited to DSL.
