  1. From the look on his face, Daryl, I'd take a chance, and guess the idiot isn't you.

    1. Good luck, Toonman!
      One of our remotes came with a 200 pg. user's manual.
      Thank you for the smile! :-)

  5. No plan is perfect and a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. And I think we know who that is....

    Remember the Hard Reboot (unplug the box for 5 minutes) too.

  10. Not to tell tales out of school, but MY WIFE is usually the one who presses something and then the closed captioning for the hearing impaired starts scrolling across our screen. She says, "Whuh?!?" and I have to figure out how to get it back to our able-to-hear-just-fine-thank-you setting.

    (Of course, when the day comes when we actually NEED closed captioning, I'll never be able to figure out how to get it to function, so there's that.)
