OK so it took us longer than planned: but at last, another episode of Salmon Days, our pay-per-view-live action comedy streaming epic.

You can check it out at www.salmondays.tv.

There's a few changes too:

One: the reverse SMS billing option is junked, unless you're a Vodafone customer (in which you can use M-Pay). This is for money, rather than technical reasons. The yield is too low, we're told (This is a euphemism for too many middlemen with snouts in the trough). It means that all of you who registered for episode 1 from non-Vodafone accounts will have to reregister. It's a pain, sorry.

Which means our PPV option for most is PayPal (yes, we know it sucks etc. etc.). It costs 50p if you're in the UK, or one US dollar - which makes sense to us, but not necessarily if you are American.

Two: the Salmon Day writers have moved on from the original loosely-inspired-by-BOFH concept to a beast entirely of their own creation. Some of you noted that the BOFH in episode one had little to do with The Bastard Operator as envisioned by comedy genius Simon Travaglia. We'd like to film BOFH episodes at some point - but that requires money. Which we don't have, right now.

Three: Salmon Days Episode 2 is the first of a series of five, linking together to tell a half-hour story.

Four: The website has been upgraded from the frankly shoddy "page not found" gag into a proper site which will have new text features and columns every week, plenty of short downloadable mpegs, and a full archive of past episodes and video material - all of which you can see for free - plus the new Pay Per View episode every month.

Five The Salmon Days crew want to flog a limited edition DVD of the whole half-hour to subscribers sometime in May or June. We'll probably do some merchandising too.

Six: There is no six. ®
