    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Seriously. DIRECTV just changed their whole interface last night and I am not a happy TV addict.
    I haven't noticed a change.

    Yup, mine changed last week. Still getting used to it. I don't like the fact that they don't show the date in the upper right corner anymore on the guide.

    I would bet that if you took a team of the best MLB players and put them up against the best players you could find that don't play in the MLB, the MLB players would win a 7 games series more often than not.

    The "world champion" thing is like calling American football (NFL) "football" - it makes no sense, but we're used to it. I like the sound of "super bowl champion," "NBA champion," "Stanley cup champion" better.

    That would be interesting concept and series to watch. But, like you state, MLB already arguably has the best players worldwide. So in that aspect, I can concede to your point. Without an international league of the best players, which is logistically impossible, it as close as one can come to being a world champ. And MLB provides a huge opportunity to great foreign players whom otherwise probably wouldn't get that in their own country. Good talk! We should do this again sometime. Except over large amounts of beer and really great bar food!

    I feel your pain. Once my mother asked me if website colors fade over time and I had no idea how to answer. Technically the monitor could degrade over time making it seem like colors are fading, but I know she didn’t mean it that way. I had to laugh and explain that it’s not possible for RGB values to fade because they’re all just numbers. Of course that went right over her head (which of course I knew it would, but the geek in me couldn’t resist) so I just updated her site with a brighter color scheme.

    Noticing your location, I think my family and I drove through Wichita last year when we were on vacation. We stayed a few days in OKC and then drove up to see the Wizard of Oz museum in Wamego.

    At work our building is split into 3 wings. Each wing has 4 or 5 floors. Each floor of each wing has 1 bathroom for each sex. The bathrooms are situated in the middle of each wing, and all stairs/elevators are on the end. Each mens bathroom has 2 stalls. On average when I need to go #2 I need to search 3 or more bathrooms for an open stall (or one that isn't being cleaned). This is quite frustrating when you really have to go, because it is a "long" walk between bathrooms.

    Apparently someone at work has had enough of this. I don't normally take pictures when on the toilet, but thought you would find this amusing.

    I got an update about a month or two ago, I wonder if that is what you are seeing or if it is yet another one.

    It sucks really bad. I like to watch my DVR shows oldest first (regardless of series), and to determine that info, takes me a couple of minutes.

    Also, it tends to freeze a lot when in the DVR menu, sometimes I have to power cycle to get out of it.

    Yeah that's the system I have had for a month or two. What they don't mention is how sluggish it is. Most of my issues with it aren't even mentioned on these video's since the way I watch is different then they do.

    I recently upgraded to the 4K receiver, but it was a waste of time since you have to subscribe to a higher package to get a few channels that will have a few documentary type of shows, or an occasional sports broadcast, and I think it would be an extra $15/mo. So now the only 4K content is from on-demand, and I never pay for on-demand. This receiver is very slow, and now has two components to it. I often have to wait 30 seconds or so when turning the tv on for it to sync with the server. Also, channel changing often takes several seconds.

    Strongly considering moving to TW/Spectrum. If I do that my internet cost will go down too.

    We had the same issue when I worked Down town. 5 story building, 1 men's and 1 women's restroom on each floor plus one unisex handicapped bathroom. the men's only had 2 stalls in some but most had 3. I used to have to go down to the lobby bathroom just to find a place. (Maybe it's an Austin thing)

    Regarding the Directv debacle, let me first say that I have been a DTV customer for almost 30 years. I signed on when you had to purchase your own equipment from a 3rd party provider (P.C. Richards & Son, N.Y.) and all they really offered at the time was the NFL package. Being an owner of a telecom company, from the git-go I was amazed at the customer service they offered. They really appreciated their customers and got better at it year after year. At one point, I was issued a "Platnum/Premium" customer service card which had a personalized "800" number. When I called with a problem they answered "Well, hello Mr. Bender what can I do for you today"? I mean they were the best, hands down. I have always had their premium package and when ever there was an issue they were quick to resolve it and always offered credits. I felt appreciated.

    Since, AT&T bought them (3 or 4 years ago?) their CS immediately began to slide deeper and deeper into the lands of futility. Let me point out that I have also been an AT&T customer for over 30 years and my firm was also an authorized reseller for their long distance and the AT&T/Lucent line of business communications systems. When the purchase occurred I was optimistic that some of that fine DTV CS would rub off on AT&T. lol Obviously, I was dead wrong.

    Anyway, I contacted them for the third time regarding this new "skin" rollout that occurred in my area (AZ) approx. 10 days ago with no warning or notice of any kind. My issues have ranged from the "Guide" info being out of sync with the actual programming, to not being able to access my "Playlist". Of course, the poor bastard that I got on the phone apologized profusely and told me that they are rolling it back to the previous skin by 5/31 and to be patient with them during the process!!! lol I asked her to inquire with her superiors would they be patient with me if I decided to withhold partial payment until they worked things out on their end? Of course, now way. I then petitioned for credits which are "being taken under consideration" and they will get back to me!!lol

    While, if you talk to 20 people at either AT&T or DTV you will undoubtedly receive 20 different and distinctive stories, they are supposedly going back to the old skin by 5/31 and we just have to deal with it until then. It saddens me to see what AT&T has done to such an amazing customer service department. While, IMO DTV still offers the best content and tech, God help you should you need service. It seems that too many large service companies are following suit. They just let some poor asshole have to sit and listen to people like you and I rail on about the lack of service or some ill advised upgrade and then go merrily back to taking our money on a monthly basis dealing with issues in THEIR own good time!!!

    Anyway, rant completed. If anyone hears anything else, news wise I for one would appreciate it if you shared. Oh, but for the good old days when my business actually counted to someone!!! lol lol lol

    I quit DirecTV and cable a looooooong time ago and never missed it for one single second. I figured I was paying to get 'pure' TV, whatever that is, and when HBO, etc. begin talking during movie credits, putting their logos in the corners of the screen and doing those damn pop-ups, I wrote them a couple of complaining, but very polite letters (no internet back then). They sent me a reply and said most people didn't mind those practices and others wanted to know what was coming up on the next program. I said, thank you very much and cancelled cable. Am I too picky? Possibly, but like I said, I don't miss cable even a tiny bit.
    Wait, I did miss not seeing the last season of The Larry Sanders Show, but I have since purchased the DVDs so I made up for that.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    I did get a notice some time ago from them that this was going happen. I hadn't heard they are going back - that's great.

    AT&T are totally incompetent. When I switched to Direct about a year and half ago, I cancelled Dish. They then sent me a "final" bill for a month after it was cut off. I refused to pay. They sent it to a collection agency. After many phone calls and IM chats and not being able to find any e-mail addresses to send complaints to someone at AT&T I simply gathered up my evidence, sent it to their lawyers in Atlanta and told them take care of it or a judge would. The Manager, Office Of The President of ATT couldn't take care of it fast enough for me. I wonder how many people simply pay a final bill from those pond scum and never check it.
