Joining the DVD-R age
We don't have Tivo or cable, but we have a DVD recorder.
Fancy that -- the nice 5-disc DVD player died abruptly. Probably due to being on Pause for over a week (couldn't squeeze in any S:SG-1) and the laser tracking blew. Since it's rarely economical to repair these sorts of things, Pete decided to buy something new and was taken by Best Buy's arrangement of fancy DVD recorders. We bought the cheapest one and it's not too bad. Makes watching TV a little harder because the antenna signal isn't as strong as when it was going through the VCR and then to the TV. But it's a compact unit and very easy to operate.
A colleague of Pete guffawed when he (Pete) mentioned he didn't have Tivo, yet was paid as a "multimedia specialist" at his place of employment. Pete cried.
