While the VCR suggestion was the best from the flame Iggies, Tuesday is 
still, as T.E. Lackey has mentioned, a day where all the premiere shows run 
and is one of the few days that people with significant others or friends 
spend significant time watching television. Thursday is the only other day 
where this really occurs. The other days, such as Friday, Saturday, Sunday, 
and Monday tend to contain social events, family events, and football, as 
well. This only leaves Wednesday where the turnout would be the best. I 
believe another person commented that he had hockey practice on Tuesday as 
well. If I am not mistaken, increasing player turnout and tuning out the 
conventional flame Iggies  would be ideal to increase interest, to increase 
the sample size of players, and thus, increase the validity of the game 
statistics collected--something even an conventional flaming Netrek geek 
would have interest.
