Well it certainly looks like this week there is no Monday night (Tue morning) Vault. Whether this is permanent, or only during the W-League season, or only this week - time will tell...
Looking at next weeks' programming they are only showing the women's soccer on the Tues/Wed night - which is a repeat of their regular Sunday afternoon program.
It looks like they will only replay the Saturday afternoon soccer on the Mon/Tues night and next week there is no game broadcast in that slot so it should be back to normal vault segment.
Checking the soccer broadcast fixture it appears that the Saturday game shown last week was a one off to launch the season (although it was actually round 2 apparently). The W League season runs for 14 weeks plus 3 weeks of finals but in round 10 (Jan 1&2) there will be no broadcast game.
So it looks like we will be back to normal after tonight.
I've noticed Rage don't seem to be posting anyone's message on their Facebook page lately too.
I put up my Countdown episode requests for January last week and they haven't materialised on the Rage page yet.
Hopefully they will take anyone's requests on board at least and make note of them - I'd like to see a good January season considering there's 5 Saturdays next year. Here's hoping.
Tonight's Vault episode seems to feature many mid-late 90s/early 00s touring dance/pop acts, plus similar:

Do i record in 4:3 or 16:9?
I'm recording in 4:3, but several (if not most) of these videos might air in 16:9, due to either being widescreen or letterboxed 4:3, which rage usually enlarge. However, there were a couple of vault videos they've aired recently that were letterboxed but they did not enlarge them to 16:9. I wish they'd do that more often.
Whigfield's 'Sexy Eyes' will definitely be 16:9, as it was when it aired a few years ago. Same with Gina G 'Ooh Ah', BZ/Joanne, ATB, Jam and Spoon, Alice Deejay, Billie Ray Martin, Vengaboys, Dario G, Sonique - which have aired on rage in recent years, other than Vengaboys' 'Up and Down', which is letterboxed, so will probably be 16:9.
Eiffel 65, Shanks and Bigfoot, Urban Cookie Collective, and Melanie C have all aired in 4:3 in recent years.
Whigfield's 'Saturday Night' will be 4:3.
Ann Lee, ATC, JX and Aqua are all letterboxed, so will probably be 16:9.
I've asked someone to record it in 16:9 for me... but the ABC have got that additional '60 years of TV' bit to their watermark currently, which looks awful.

Thankyou Nathan. I will certainly look forward to this vault special. Some of these haven't been played for years.
The version of Life On Mars played during December 5 hasn't been played before until now
WOW!!! All the Kim Carnes videos!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO RARE <3 More Love and Invisible Hands, fantastic. WOuld have loved Voyeur as well but Kim Carnes videos are not easy to obtain and there amre some RARE ones there xxxxx And Looking Over My Shoulder by Til Tuesday!!!!! How AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If only rage included the video to Breakdance by Irene Cara!
But how super duper COOL!
Shoina Lang as well!
Could have done without the common Cyndi Lauper, Janet Jackson, Pointer Sisters videos and replaced with some Stacey Q videos like Don't Make A Fool Of Yourself and Give You All My Love ...
And some Shakespear's Sister clips like Break My heart, Heroine, Hello Hello (Turn Your Radio On), I Don't Care ...
And some Kim Wilde videos rage haven't played in ages like In My Life, Kids In America '1994', The Touch, Anywhere Anyplace Anytime with Nena
Helen Terry - Stuttering ...
As much as I love Janet Jackson, would have preferred La Toya videos!!!!
B U T .... still, a great theme and again the Kim Carnes videos are WOW and so MEGA RARE ***** !!!!! ***** As is Looking Over My Shoulder by Til Tuesday ... I do have a Til Tuesday Video compilation but it's NTSC so will be nice to have a PAL copy of Over My Shoulder ....
Looking Over My Shoulder video just aired on rage and it's actually not on the Til Tuesday Video comp I have!!! My one has Love In A Vacuum which is another fav. I have actually never seen the Over My Shoulder video so WOW, that was a real TREAT!!!!!!!
Til' Tuesdays debut album is one of my favourite albums of all time, it is simply STUNNING
One of the best vaults for the year.
I seemed to get some glitches (pixelation and freezing) throughout but fortunately didn't seem to affect the clips that I was interested in. Just wondering if others had this and it was a broadcast issue and not my reception.
Hopefully a precursor to the quality we will see in January - quality of programming not the glitches that is.
Maybe Looking Over My Shoulder is on the VHS, I don't remember the video for Over My Shoulder though, I watched it a long time ago so yeah. The VHS was a 5 track so it must be on there.
As far as freezing, I had so much freezing last night and dropouts during quite a few clips, but the ones I wanted which were RARE were fine. This occurred on the DVD Recorder broadcast, on the Foxtel IQ recording, no freezing at all
Rage has been glitchy for a few mondays now. Grrrrr
rage have never played The Touch by Kim ... I had a really good copy of the video anyway but would be nice to see.
Rage did play In My Life and Kids In America '94 but they must be long gone from their library which is interesting as they have way RARER videos in general and they even played Dancing In The Dark by Kim after she programmed which is one of her very most RARE videos along with The Touch ....
I've got an official promo VHS compilation copy of 'The Touch'. It's complete and clean other than a 'Kim Wilde' superscript appearing for a few seconds over it.
Wow, rage are airing 'Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree' this Saturday morning.
Ooooh, an official VHS of The Touch, can I PLEASE have a copy?????
Thanks for letting me know about rage airing Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

Super Fly Guy would have been great instead of Theme From S Express, but anyhow...
Would have loved rage to dig out Rookies Revenge from Lou which was a PWL production from 1988. rage used to play it lots in 1988, I wonder if they still have it.
Most of the clips were selections that are played many a times though Bomb The Bass with Beat Dis isn't one that is aired much, it was aired heaps in 1988 but glad they still have the video. Don't Make Me Wait is my favourite Bomb The Bass track though...
Coldcut & Yazz with Doctorin' The House would have been good for this special and the original 1988 video for Coldcut and Lisa Stansfield with People Hold On which is not on Lisa's official DVD....
