Tell me how to fast forward through live TV...sounds like a Canadian trick....

nice use of the quote button...proud of you!

you mix drinks, snack and pee for commercials during the game. All other tv, you watch later or record earlier

Just so I got this straight, you're now advocating that I rearrange my schedule so that I'm not watching live t.v.

So hypothetically, I'm ready to watch House at eight, and the cognitive center of my brain pings "you fool, you could watch this without commercials." So I set my Tivo, go downstairs, beat my face against the wall for an hour pontificating what a smart guy I am, then come back up at 9, watch a 40-minute House without commercials and pat myself on the back for for being so hip.

What an age to be alive.

well...personally...I have a satellite and live in mountain time, so I record all the shows I want to see in eastern time and then watch them all back to back once the kids are in bed. Suppose all y'all being in eastern time, you don't have that option...but I'd still find a way to do so....something about watching an hour long show in 45 minutes, commercial free.

And I've had the same PC for the last 5 years and haven't had one problem with it while all my friends with Macs are constantly posting on facebook that there Mac is broken again.

:Chevy_anim:

Hmm that surprises me. I guess they each have their own problems. My University supports PC and Mac and they have twice as many PC's come in as they do Macs for repairs.

Well now that I am gainfully employed, I probably should invest in a Tivo. Especially because I have to skip the gym a few times a week due to the TV schedule. I won't miss House or a new episode of South Park.

Yeah, I'm not saying that PCs are better. I don't think they are honestly.

It's just that the commercials piss me off and make me really not want one. This sorta goes along with Geico and Progressive commercials...and those stupid Subway commercials. Every time I hear that 5 dollar foot long song I change the channel.

The funny thing is, it's made Windows do the same thing with their ads.

I disagree. The "I'm a PC" commercials flout their product without bashing Mac
