I've found the correlations staggering, especially as of late.
I checked this thread a few times in the past 4 years, but never had a desire to post. Never did chat rooms, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, any of that. No interest.
After my first post-Rovi lockup, I had trouble with the clock set and asked my husband to post an inquiry here (he's also on AVS). He was talking about a switch to satellite which I was against. So he set up mac24 using an old e-mail account. "Here you go. Time to put yourself out there. Just be respectful and don't talk politics." I was nervous, but thankfully you folks made it easier.
I'd swear that Joe and my H were separated at birth. Always right to the point. Short and sweet. And when he likes something, he buys another "just in case". He has a spare for everything.
Finding out that so many of us were Basic programmers and have other such similar experiences and interests - it's indeed strange that it's tied to a Sony DVR made in 2005. Six months ago I thought these forums were nothing but 30-year old techno-geeks. I could never have predicted any of this, but now I appreciate it.
Still smooth sailing, over 14 weeks, no lockups or restarts, use it all the time ...
