More Idiot Tax
Last Sunday, I attempted to burn a DVD of clips for a broadband provider. I purchased DVD+Rs since that’s what my old laptop had. When I got home and popped in a disc, nothing was going on. To be fair, I really didn’t wait too long. I panicked and quickly came to the conclusion that I purchased the wrong media. I gave the DVD+Rs to Rannie. After me Seattle trip, I bought DVD-Rs. I went to burn my DVD and nothing happened. Finally, I want to the control panels and discovered that I do indeed have a DVD+R drive. Since I was in a rush, I burned three CD-Rs of clips, sent them to the broadband provider, and mailed them off. Thankfully, Best Buy let me exchange my DVD-Rs for DVD+Rs. Yes, I’m an idiot.
In other idiotic news, I lost my TiVo (MeVo) controller. TiVo is absolutely useless without the remote. I scoured my room several times over the course of several days — still not around. I ordered a new remote from TiVo. It arrived in a day and I now have this nifty blue TiVo remote…which means that my old remote will show up any minute now.
