so, i've been very frustrated for the last few days...i hate it when things break, don't work, it's hard to fix..can't find what you need etc...the night before we went to hawaii, we had big power outage...for about 3 hours...that was a pain in itself, since i was packing at the time....get out the flashlights! when i got home, i went to turn on my tv to catch up on all my shows...and behold! the tivo wasn't working...something must have happened during the outage is all i can figure...so, i call and try to get them to help, they say to just unplug it for 30 seconds....that doesn't work..we try unplugging various different ways...no such luck, then we change the electrical cord...no such luck.it must be dead, they say i'm out of luck.....then i try finding the type of tivo i had...no such luck...what a pain...i finally found one...putting it together is a bother...it should be easy, but you have to move the tv..deal with all the cords, the cabinet etc....finally it works! yippee! then i start thinking of my last week when the most i had to think about was what to eat for dinner....hmmmmmm.....why don't vacations last longer?
