    Hrmf, yesterday, Steph and I made a Fry's run and picked up a Tivo, I decided that I've had enough of american commercials, plus I want my daily B5 without having to be home at 16 o'clock. Got home and plugged it in (we have too many things attached to the telly already, and we're still short of one dvd player).

    It didn't work ... Turned it own and it showed the intro screen and then just sat there. So we had to go back this morning to get a replacement. Fry's equal oppurtunity employment policy must involve only hiring retards, the people at Fry's are in general really weird and apparently also happen to be really dumb.

    While grabbing a new one, we noted that half the Tivo boxes had "Defect Item Returned" stickers on them, what the fuck?! Do they just tape the box back together and dump it with the other boxes on sale ?!

    So we finally found one that didn't have a "defect item" sticker and didn't look too battered. Must try again tonight.

    And apparently, vicious thinks I'll pick him up in SJO tonight... It'd be fun to not pick him up, except that'll mean not having a good reason for drinking.
