It marks which ones you've watched by embedding a red line underneath the episode thumbnail, similar to Youtube.

I read a book that involved arctic survival. If I recall at those extreme temps the fluids in your eyes will freeze almost immediately and you're pretty **** at that point.

Yeah. You're basically tagging a series when you add it to your library. If you untag the series it will stop recording but retain the series until the recordings expire. They won't stay on your Home/Library main screen for that long, though. Eventually they'll drop into the 'Shows' category and you...

Killer NOTAMS did it for me.

He is a pretty good follow. This is the first I have seen him do something this overproduced.

Flipped it on and it's a goalie shooting competition and a bunch of women hockey players.

In the summer I take my dog out and just sit on a bench in the front yard and zone out for a while. Winter sucks.

Well, yeah, it's still network TV.

Some of the networks are broke as **** and don't even have ads, just the commercial breaks. :lol:

That's what happens when you play from VOD. If you play from a 'recording' you can ffwd through the ad breaks. When you put a show in the library for the first time it will populate with VOD offerings. As the shows air live and is captured you'll have the option to play the 'recording.' Sometimes wh...

It makes sense. That used to be my podcast time.

I can schedule podcast time at home if I need it. In fact, a few days a week, the Peloton ride marks the delineator between work and home. And that's way better for me than sitting on I-376.

Yeah, let me know. Maybe not much we can do about it but it's nasty how families treat each other in this kind of situation. That's why I'm so adamant about my parents and remaining grandparents getting wills and healthcare directives now, not later.

I was helping someone sort out some estate concerns (yay, free lawyering). It costs $8,500 to cremate someone. No service, no viewing, just reception and disposal of the body. Seems like a lot but it's not like you can just not do it. Since you brought it up. Do you do this for a fee (estate law)? ...

My guess is that this person died with only neices and nephews, who all opted out of doing anything with the estate. So the attorney likely handled the final disposition. If I'm a funeral home dude I'm going to quote higher knowing the attorney doesn't have a stake. The total value of the estate wit...

I have one more question that is probably an obvious answer: say you have a recording on Fox for a TV show, but the baseball game before it goes long. Does YouTube TV still capture the show in full, or is it like traditional cable, etc. where it will just record the timeframe, so part of the show i...

I like how it handles DVR. You basically tell it what shows/events you want and it just starts building a library as the shows air. Maybe all the new streaming services do that, but the recordings are kept nice and neat, organized by season. If there are duplicates you get a drop down and can pick w...

It takes very little time to grab any of the help wanted signs in town.

So the unemployment rate is definitely higher than the reported number, but as Dodint seems to be on about, it’s always higher than the reported number. I don't have an agenda here. I was just curious if it was possible we were seeing a lower rate because of uncounted people that fell off the rolls...
