Thanks for posting that article! A fun read! I love the author's writing style. I laughed out loud a couple of times. Especially this line:
"...the unholy prospect of setting up a week’s worth of VCR programming, a fate I wouldn’t wish even on my most hated, least technically-inclined enemy."
Oh, the good 'ole days of VCRing!
The person who wrote that quote is nuts. The VCR was the single simplest machine ever devised. Programming it was no trouble at all.
And yeah, I miss those days too.
