actually its on the equinox, if you want to be a stickler

June 20, 2012 will be when the days start to get shorter to be exact. In the northern hemisphere its the summer solstice, but in the souther hemisphere its the winter solstice.

Now back to Tivo!

Well the first day of summer is 6/20 so I guess that means it's still spring on 6/19, so we still have almost 2 months of spring left.

Whaa?

Summer is when the days start getting shorter. Summer starts on the solstice. Spring starts on the equinox.

True - but the actual number of minutes of daylight per day begins to decrease after the vernal (spring) equinox, culminating in the "shortest" day of the year, the summer solstice. Equinox comes from the Latin, meaning "equal night".

That's not true. The rate of increase in day length decreases after the equinox. The minutes of daylight increase all the way until the solstice.

Hefe has it right. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=shortest+day+of+the+year

also

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=last+day+of+spring

The astronomical spring (Northern Hemisphere) began Tuesday, March 20, 2012, and ends Tuesday, June 19, 2012.

I hope you're teaching science in Australia - or at least not in our school district.

I realize that. There's also two solstices. But I thought it was at least clear which of them we were talking about.

Silly me... I figured with a whole page of new posts in such a short period of time that maybe the new update had arrived.

anyhow,

Happy Not Yet Summer Solstice Day to Everyone!

Smbaker,
Out of curiosity what features, or lack thereof, makes you feel the premier series is incomplete? I just bought an elite and love it so far. There are things I miss that were on my s3.

I'm mostly still pouting about the lack of a complete HDUI, although when I originally formed up that signature it was also running only a single core and the interface performed like a sick dog. The premiere has seen me swing form a 10-year advocate of Tivo, to someone who was almost ready to dump his Premieres and start searching for alternatives, to now tolerating the devices. The last few updates made huge strides for me (enabling second core, fixing performance problems, etc). If and when they finally finish up the HDUI, I'll probably revise my signature. I seriously doubt I'll ever be a strong advocate for the company or its products again though.

ETA: Add 'lack of amazon prime' to my list of gripes, although I'm not sure whether to assign that gripe to Tivo or Amazon. It's insane that 'the one box' still doesn't have Amazon Prime and sports a netflix interface that looks like it's old enough to belong in one of Lost's Dharma Bunkers.

OMG! I step away for a moment and all hell breaks loose. My point was that the update could be released anytime during Spring and still qualify as a Spring unpdate.
