Something else that annoys me
2007-04-30

Certainly, the list of things that annoys me is large, and growing. One such thing: the SciFi channels love of "marathon" sessions of shows. For instance, I hadn't gotten around to watching last Friday's Stargate Atlantis episode on my Tivo yet... and today, its gone. SciFi showed 7 episodes in a row this morning, which my Tivo dutifully recorded... but I only have it set to keep 5 episodes (the default) and so the one from last friday is gone.

Now, I could set up my recordings to only records "new" episodes... except I often record episodes on repeats because there was some conflict with the original time, though this happens less with the new dual tuner Tivo I've got.

Oh well, I wasn't that interested in watching it anyways.
