Yesterday, I got an early Christmas present from The Rents, it is a Digital Hard Drive Recorder thingymabob!
Now, this is most exciting for me as I've wanted one since my recordable subtitled video gave up the ghost!
And it really is the best thing since sliced bread, which actually isn't hard as I prefer to slice my own bread anyway.
If someone had told me 15 years ago that when I was 29, I would simply attach a computer to my TV to record my favourite shows, AND that those shows would be subtitled, I would have passed out in shock.
In those days, I had a Caption Reader for videos, which had leads and cables that were more complicated to work out than the rewiring of The National Grid.
Even when it was plugged in, hardly any videos had captions.
It's so much better!
OK, so it's not perfect, but comparable to 15 years ago, it's a dream.
So tonight, when I get home, I can scroll through the crap TV that I experimentally set to record today…
I can't wait!
