My wish is that the port does become active for external storage devices such as a second harddrive.
Actually, (per the ReplayTV Web Site) a software update due out the 1st quarter of 2003 was supposed to address this by enabling the USB port to allow connection of a USB 802.11b Wireless Ethernet Adapter, but as we all know, because of the bankruptcy filing, all software updates have been (presumably) delayed to who knows when.
This obviously doesn;t address the "storage" issue, but it does address what the USB port was intended for.
Since the 1800s, â€˜pony up,â€™ or â€˜poney up,â€™ has been American slang for â€˜to pay up.â€™ These words may derive from the German â€˜poniren,â€™ â€˜to pay,â€™ but â€˜ponyâ€™ was British slang for a small amount of money in the early 19th century, probably because a pony is a small horse (not over 14 hands high), and the term to â€˜pony upâ€™ probably derived from this expression. Other uses of â€˜ponyâ€™ to indicate smallness include the â€˜ponyâ€™ that is a small glass or bottle of alcohol beverage and the â€˜ponyâ€™ meaning a trot or crib â€“ a translation used by students.â€ From the â€œEncyclopedia of Word and Phrase Originsâ€ by Robert Hendrickson (Facts on File, New York, 1997).
