Hi Andrea,

Sorry, I don't have anywhere near the amount of storage required for this at
the moment :)  Besides, NBC, which is carrying the feed in the US, has a
stern warning/legalese about this being the property of the IOC, don't copy
it or we'll sue you, yada yada yada.  At 6 GB/hour, they probably don't have
to worry for another few years, as this amount of data is still a little bit
difficult to move around.
