I can't TAKE IT anymore!!
That's it. I'm done. I am completely over it.
Here's what separates me from the majority of you people.
First and foremost. Read slowly now, children, so there's no confusion.
I have a LIFE! And Heaven forbid I should have a problem with my TiVo, and the world might stop spinning and I should be shot out into space.
Oh, no, wait. There ARE no problems with TiVo! TiVo is perfect! If you don't like TiVo, then you obviously should take it back to the store where you purchased it, because you aren't GOOD ENOUGH to own one! You're not a high enough calibre person to even have this fantastical piece of God-like equipment in your house!
Do you all realize that you have spent the better part of what looks like two days debating the merits of a piece of electronic equipment that is supposed to make your life easier, better, and perhaps more fun?
Here's a word of advice for ALL of you - read a book! No, wait, let me take that a step farther. Leave your home! Spend some time in the sun and soak up some real Vitamin D. Find a woman and go on a date. Get lucky, if you've got it in you! I'm sure someone's recorded a show about how it's done. Engage in some conversation about something besides how great it is to have a over-rated VCR picking and choosing your television for you. Go to school! Learn something! Travel a little, and get out of your house, instead of watching prime time TV replayed "at your convenience" so you can get a feeling of what New York must be like, or Los Angeles. And everyone knows, The West Wing is an accurate portrayal of the White House. Current events spoon fed in prime time with name brand actors! Woo hoo!
And I would recommend WATCHING some live tv, for those of you who say that you are so enamored of your TiVo units that you don't ever watch anything live, you just watch what you choose to record or what it spoon-feeds you. There are these channels on modern television, they're called NEWS channels. And if you're REALLY adventurous, you might actually find some LIVE NEWS (gasp!) that's done in your home town, so you can stay connected with your local community and the issues instead of feeling tied to your TiVo and your internet connection, either being coddled by one or feeling the need to preach the virtues of it on the other.
This isn't real life, folks. Neither is TiVo. TiVo isn't alive, it's not a creature that is intuitive and knows what you like or don't like. It's a piece of electronic equipment, manufactured in some small Asian country I'd bet, where someone's busting their butt to make sure you don't have to get OFF YOUR butt - heaven forbid you would engage your brains for at least a moment and actually choose your own entertainment for you. And, while I'm at it, I'd like to point out that not only isn't TiVo alive, it's certainly NOT worth all of the time and energy you wacko freaks are putting into debating it here! Good lord, how much geekier and completely pathetic can you be?
I thought this was a helpful forum to help me learn about TiVo, which is supposed to make things more convenient for me. You know, free up my time so I can go about my LIFE. For those of you unfamiliar with that word, I'd recommend www.dictionary.com, since you're already glued to your PC reading my every word. LIFE. Get out of the house! Walk your dog! Play with your kids, if you're among the people fortunate enough to have a woman! Drive to the grocery store and get some nourishing food, buy a magazine while you're there, and come home and do something besides THIS or THAT! Educate yourself, further yourself, and spend some time on something that really matters.
Because this is just pathetic.
Don't even bother responding - I'm so done, it's not even funny. After all, I have things to do. Jobs to go to, dogs to walk, sunshine to soak up, books to read, and if I do plop my ass in front of the television, I'm sure I'll be watching something enriching like CNN or - gasp - that local news I've heard so much about.
