    • Brian PeekBrianPeek I like pie.

      Hey!  To set the record straight, *I* didn't record Access Hollywood.  My TiVo recorded those things as Suggestions.  That's what the (S) appended to the tweet means.  I have little to no control over it.  Tongue Out


      Feel free to make fun of the non-(S) recordings though.  There are plenty of crappy shows I actually DO watch.

    • Ok, since the "S"s are off limits, how about...

      Cheaters: "Husband has another woman"

      Cheaters: "Boyfriend has found someone new"

      Cheaters: "Wife gives her love to someone new"

      See?  Told you I watch plenty of crappy shows you can make fun of.  Smiley

    • Dan FernandezDan

      LOL, Isn't it worse that your Tivo has decided based on your TV tastes that you would like shows like Access Hollywood?!

    • Brian PeekBrianPeek I like pie.

      It's not based solely on taste.  For a while, it thought I loved Univision and Spanish television.  Though, El Sabado Gigante is pretty great.

    • BassBass Knows the way the wind is flowing.

      Codeplex supports Mercurial?

    • BassBass Knows the way the wind is flowing.

      Wow apparently it does.

      OK, so it took me 8 episodes to notice... but I'm lovin' the increase to 1280x720 for the Hi-Res WMV download.

    • mksmks

      Twittering Tivo is the latest result of more disk space. I am glad that in the future I will be able to show the public how much I love to watch TMZ make fun of people.
