I love my Tivo and have had a hacked Series 1 since it first came out. I upgraded the memorycard, network card and hard drive myself. I've been a huge proponent amoung family and friends encouraging them to live a life free of commercials. I never took the plunge when the Series 2's came out, opting for another hard drive upgrade arround that time for my Series 1. But now Tivo is offering the Series 3 with lifetime service upgrade to Tivo Series 3 for owners of a series 1 or series 2 Tivo. Dual cable card inputs, HD tuners and cable tuners it has everything I wish my old Series 1 had. While it is expensive, its simple interface and HD features make it worth the investment. I get only a small amount of time to watch the few quality shows that are out there and the Tivo makes sure I always have something I want to watch. Considering the frustraitions I have with the 'DVR' provided by my cable company I'll be watching the door for the delivery of my new Tivo.

Lebanese television featured a two part interview with the public executioner of Mecca, Abdullah Al-Bishi. The eleven and a half minute video opens a window into Middle Eastern culture, though the insight it provides is undoubtedly unintentional.

In the first ever open act of nuclear terrorism, with the Russian embassy to the UK and several British Airways flights now known to be contaminated with radioactive Polonium, one British citizen dead by KGB methods on British soil, and many others either targeted or unintended casualties, Scotland Yard has declared this open act of war, this open violation of British sovereignty by the Kremiln, to be a ... "murder case." In other investigations, World War Two is officially being re-investigated as a hate crime, and World War One is to be reclassified as a pub brawl.

It is illegal in NZ to smoke inside any public building and in some cases, outside as well. At Auckland International Airport, there used to be designated smoking area's, which have been removed because of the governments anti-smoking campaign.

Whilst listening to Lindsay this morning on Radio Pacific, some callers referred to the Auckland City Council as funding seances.
“A spiritual medium group was allocated a $2500 council grant to seek NZQA accreditation for their seance courses, and another $2000 was given to help fund two tarot card reading events.”

Reading the article just about caused me to start banging my head against the wall. It's about the shortage of good 20-30 year-old men in the country and thus there is an excess of single women, the beauty in the headline is a victim of this terrible calamity. Or is she?

Whether or not both of them will I can't guarantee. What you should know about them is that they're both Statists- one is a self-proclaimed Liberal Democrat( I think I've mentioned that before. The other is economically "Liberal" and Socially "Conservative"- he's definitely an Altruist, but I believe he's more misinformed than anything else. He's also a great debater, and I think you'll likely consider yourselves somewhat honored to "give him a run for his money".
Republicans and Democrats being in Synch with each other has never been so clear and creepy before...

First off, I had a nice solid debate/discussion with my friend( he's in the post-modernist belief field, however he's one of the more calm, civil ones- a true rarity), using against him the very arguments that he used on ME. Folks I assure you- it was like the Carter Vs Reagan debates. I pretty much cleaned his clock. He still stands by his beliefs, but he could barely defend them( he defended them as well as George W. Bush defends Capitalism).
