I would feel like I was cheating myself if I blocked channels. I'm paying for those, dammit, I want to see them! Even if I don't want to *watch* them.
:)
It would be awesome if I could block from the guide, and block from even being able to tune in:
-all the SD channels fro which there is an HD counterpart
-all the channels I don't subscribe to
-all the spanish chanels
-c-span

This comment could have been written by me about my wife.
"Kind of reminds me of my ex-girlfriend. She would always manage to watch the regular definition TV channels, despite having HD cable box/TV. I would get home after work and find her in the living room watching a fuzzy version of Friends or some other sitcom. It would drive me crazy. I showed her at least a dozen times how to search HD only, or even switch to the HD version of the current channel, but the truth was that she simply didn't care enough to retain the info."
Forwarded the story to a friend, he had this to say,
"I think I almost have my wife converted. She would watch shows in 4:3 because she found it easier to find those channels than the HD channels. Would drive me crazy. I would switch it to HD and say "doesn't that look better?" Her reaction was like "whatever".
That is totally my husband and me. I remember the low numbers. I cannot be bothered to remember that 805 is Fox HD (or whatever the number really is). I honestly don't notice the difference. It drives my husband crazy.

Plus, recording in HD uses up way more space on the DVR. We tend to record a whole series at a time, then watch it during the winter or summer break. We do that for several series, in addition to the ones that we watch weekly. If we did that on the HD channels, we would have no room left on our DVR.

I think it is hysterical that someone is actually taking the time to judge each one of Toj's comments clueless, regardless of what she is saying.

What is up with women stabbing babies?

The nanny in NYC, the mom in Naperville, now some mother in Texas stabbed her new-born to death - I could even bring myself to read about that one.

WTF is going on?

Oh no, now some Texas nutcase? I wish they'd just off themselves and leave the kids alone.

<quoted text>That sounds awesome except the part where you blocked the sports channels. Why would you do that? Have I been hallucinating because I know I've read many posts from you about sports.
I've gotten more into watching sports since dating Hal, who was into Twins baseball.

But remember, there are tons of sports channels on satellite, 99% of them of no interest to me -- specialized channels. I don't want to watch NBA, college sports, etc.

Did your cost of satellite go way up after your first year? Just wondering. I've never had satellite.
We didn't pay, his boss did because my ex was in the cable advertising industry. More l8r! Outta here!

Is your family doing okay?
My house got power back on Wednesday night, so we weren't without for very long. My Dad's mother got her power back on Tuesday night. My Mom's mother and my great-Aunt are still without power (they live in the next town over), but they didn't sustain any major damage to their houses).

My in-laws don't have power and they lost half of their roof. Still not a huge deal, since insurance will cover that.

My husband has been working ~18 hour days, delivering generators or doing extractions if conditions warrant and he said that seeing pictures on tv doesn't prepare you for coming face to face with the destruction that the hurricane caused or the suffering that the people are in.

BTW, did you guys see that Bloomberg cancelled the NYC marathon? I can't believe that it took so much outside pressure for him to come to that decision. I had a lot of respect for him until I have seen the way he responded to his hurricane. I can't help but compare him to Guiliani. Bloomberg comes across as very selfish and uncaring of anyone who doesn't live in Manhattan.

So I was just walking the dogs, and my cheapo flip-flop broke. I had to carry it home and of course ran into the neighbor downstairs whose balcony is right by the door. Crazy glue, don't fail me now!
