    But why are they bringing him up everywhere all of a sudden? Why didn't this happen 6 months ago? Why only recently?

    I don't watch much TV. Well, no TV at all if you're talking prime time shows, haven't in 15 years.

    Consequently, I have no idea what his condition was 6 months ago. Has this saga been going on for 6 months?:icon_eek:

    It's like the old Don Henley Song "Dirty Laundry": Kick em when their up, kick them when their down.

    I've said this in another post: I don't see anything wrong with Charlie. He just doesn't take a lot of crap, he is very intelligent, and this is probably going to be great publicity for him. I never even watched his show before, I'd probably watch now.

    I think he's a moderator here in our forum too. Now I'm not giving out any names, but those two or 3 people who look to see what I might say next, you know who I'm talking about. :D

    Do you think that maybe what's driving Charlie off the deep end has been the Thunderbolt. IMHO many normal, good members have totally lost their minds over this phone. Could Charlie be a victim of TB mania?

    So....I see nobody has answered my question....that's cool. I'm just curious what caused him from being 100% absent from the tech media, to today where he's been everywhere for the past 2 weeks. Did he do something noteworthy lately?

    For the momement he's a media darling. He's the carwreck that your driving by that you dont want to look at but it so horrific, that you must take a look to see what's going on.

    Because he's a celebrity and celebrities love publicity. Good or bad. Any publicity is good publicity, as they say... or something like that.
    Like all celbrities, likes to be in the public eye, likes to be the center of attention. Since no tv, cable or movie will take him, he's went to the internet. Then celebrity "news" shows take him on. Then he's back on the internet. Then people post about him on forums. Then he goes back on the interenet to be back in the center of attention. It's a never ending cycle.

    Of course maybe...
