Time is tight

We’re up against it now, time is slipping through our fingers like sand and we have to make the most of what we have left.

In other words the Digital TV recorder and TV are going next week! We got the letter in the post with the return address for the digital recorder and it has to be returned before the end of the month.

Of course this means that this weekend is potentially the last time we’ll have the joy of watching complete and utter, time sucking, mind melting, life absorbing crap on the box. I can’t say I’ll miss the 95% of the stuff I watch but there’ll be a few things I’m going to pine after.

Top Gear for instance, a new series of Spooks has just started, Heroes is reaching the climatic end of the first series, Later with Jools Holland has just started up again and of course Christmas would not be complete without The Sound of Music and Indiana Jones.

So this weekend is going to be frantic for numerous reasons. We’ve got dinner plans every evening, I’ve got to work for a few hours over the two days and so I plan to record as much as possible and watch everything I can before we post off the box.

As an aside, if anyone has any tips for hacking acquiring material from a Digital recorder so we can download what we’ve got stored on it(numerous films and the like) onto an Apple MacBook, for arguments sake (cough), then I’d appreciate the advice!

  1. LOL… thats what bittorrent is for. Watch your stuff when it suits you and get it as soon as it airs in the states.

    Of course as that is illegal I certainly would never partake in such behaviour 😉

  2. No Star Wars? Christmas just isn’t complete without Star Wars. 🙂
