Right now, I don't have cable or dish - pulling OTA reception. I only wish I could record in HD but don't want to build my own PVR because at some point I'll probably finalyl give in and get cable/dish/direcTV/etc and would probably pull their version of the DVR.. and tiVo doesn't have an HD capable recorder yet (unless you go through DTV).
I had DVR with dish network for a while now. I love it - It's a shame the cable companies charge twice as much for it as dish though. Oh well, with them losing so many customers to satellite I can see why they keep raising there prices ..
See - I have stopped watching TV to a point since I started at ESPN. Working from 6p-3a is kind of a buzzkill, because I forget to tape stuff all the time. I can go weeks ahead of time, recored an entire series, life is good
Worst part about it now is I hardly get to spend time with the woman I adore and love - but - we are working through it pretty good. I wake up early when she goes to work in the morning, we have breakfast together and sometimes I go back to bed. I schedule all my stuff (freelancing, appointments and such) around days when she works, so our days off I try to keep clear - which is 2 days a week.
It's not great, but we are BOTH putting in the effort, so that helps.
This is my dream, and a great opportunity. Have to pay my dues on that shift first, and it's the busiest since all the primetime TV airs at that time.
It does save a ton on child care, but, what it also does it make it where the one working can't see them that much. Take me for example; I work second shift. My daughter goes to school, when she is walking in the door I am leaving for work.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
