TVNow for Linux

Sadly, the supplier of the TVNow listings, Tony Bray, passed away on October 4 2007.

I'm not really associated with Tony, except that I talked a few times. My Linux TVNow program was only made to read the TVNow listings.

From his www.theideaparade.com website:

GREENSBORO - Mr. Sidney "Tony" Preston Bray, the author and owner of this web site and many other web sites at age 60, passed away Thursday, October 4, 2007, in Greensboro, N.C.

A celebration of life was held Sunday, October 7, at Lambeth-Troxler Funeral Chapel. Mr. Bray was born November 5, 1946, in Danville, Virginia, to the late Marvin and Doris Peck. He attended George Washington High School and was awarded a journalism scholarship to Vanderbilt University. Tony was a man of many talents, an entrepreneur, a publisher, inventor, musician and journalist, he was employed by Business Data, Cone, AMP, was the president and owner of TV-Now and Idea Parade, and he volunteered with the Page High School Band. He was a drummer for the bands The Twisters, The Kondors, The Venturas, The Imperials, and The Nomads . He was a loving husband, father and friend, he will be dearly missed. He is predeceased by his parents.

The following is the TVNow for Linux program that I wrote. It is for interest only as it has not been maintained and the listings may not become available again.
