The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Recommend me a DVR (or maybe just a second-hand VCR)
I'm starting to get tired of two things: missing the end of Mythbusters because of a prior obligation Wednesday evenings, and having to stay up to 4:00 AM to catch certain shows.
I remember a few years back, there seemed to be a few DVR options at various budgets. I assumed prices would go down and the selection would increase, so I waited. Instead, the opposite seems to have occurred: there are fewer models, and they cost more. I have no idea why, for the life of me. I've seen more options for DVD-Rs, but there seem to be a lot of compatibility and recording issues (high failure rates, inability to replay, etc.). At this rate, I might as well just buy a second-hand VCR, VHS cassette and learn to program it.
If anyone has a DVR they can recommend, that is within a reasonable price (I'm open, but I don't want to go bankrupt), please enlighten me. I don't have Tivo (a given), and I get cable without a box.
