Dispatches from Maine

Just another person of little note writing about ordinary things. That I reside in Maine is icing on the cake.

Time Shifting, The Weather and a DVR

So, I just had the weirdest experience. I am sitting here watching Numb3rs, the TV show, from my DVR. Part of the experience of watching shows from a DVR is that hazy that sense of when the show was actually on. How long ago was that news bulletin? Did something really happen at the State House today? Was it last week? The feeling was even more pronounced when I saw the weather forecast come on. The brief soundbite was, "It looks like the sun is not going to last long this weekend." The question was then, when was this forecast for...? Was it for this weekend, which found a beautiful Sunday and a moderate to rainy Saturday? Was it a weekend a few weeks ago?

I have no idea, but I do recognize this feeling. I have frequently experienced this sensation since acquiring the DVR. Welcome to the world of time shifted TV.

fraternal greetings...

yeah it boils down to if you mind living in a time paradox if you will and don't mind a personal suspension of the space/time continuum... lol
