    I think that is perhaps the best advertisement I have ever heard for purchasing a Mac.

    Hmm, yeah. I don't really care much for Fedora, although all things considered I prefer it to Ubuntu. I've never found anything I prefer overall to Debian.

    Up to a point, the more the better. It means having to mess with managing recording that much less frequently. With 12 days of data, I only have to deal with recording management once every 10 days or so. If I had access to a month's worth, I would only need to browse the data once a month, and the fact is the data for a month is only a little bit more voluminous to the user than that for 12 days.

    Or years, but that doesn't require guide data. Quite a fair percentage of the programs my TiVos record were set up years ago.

    What is it with you and season passes? I only have a handful, and some of those are defunct. If the season pass capability were to be eliminated, I would only be very mildly annoyed, and hardly inconvenienced at all.

    Well, me, either.

    Fewer than 5% of the shows recorded by my TiVos are even eligible for a season pass, and most of those are recorded via Suggestions, not a Season Pass.

    So is a TiVo, if one wishes to make full use of it, albeit a transient one once one has the TiVo set up.

    You didn't build it, you just assembled it. 'Not that there is something amiss in being satisfied at assembling something, but it is not the same as building it.

    Yes, and what is important to me is not supporting the @#%@%^^^% in Redmond, or bending over for the #$^#$^^& in Hollywood, or promoting closed source programming, or going to the trouble to build a video library only to have it evaporate when - not if, WHEN - a card fails or a re-install of the OS becomes necessary.
