Iffy.  The TiVo im using I bought a couple weeks before 9/11.  How many other appliances last that long?


My home air conditioner.  Lasted from 1976 (new house install) until 2015.  Furnace still going strong...

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

I don't know if the email is legit; I haven't gotten one of these.

A confirmation of sorts... DirecTV is phasing out Standard Definition, so the loss of local channels is collateral damage.

If I were just going to loose the locals I wouldnt care thanks to a newfangled thing called an antenna (and if you live in Tornado Alley you should really have an antenna)  but at&t is just going to let the old satellites fall out of the sky (looking at you, China) and go all HD and 4K, etc.

Sold the grandparents home about 2008-2009 or so.... still had the original Sears A/C system working from when the house was built in 1957 (21st and Memorial area - just before Hale High opened).  Couple years later, I drove by and noticed there was new unit installed.  I really was hoping for mine to match the performance of that machine, but sadly, it was not meant to be!   Points to the slow, inexorable, degradation and slide of American manufacturing over the years!
