I remember driving to the mall after work one day and right as I got onto the onramp for the highway I remembered I forgot to set the VCR for one of my favorite shows that was about to start in 20 minutes. It took me about 19 minutes to loop back around and race up the stairs into the apartment to get it set up. A week later I bought my first TiVo. Soon after that I was supplying friends and co-workers with tapes of shows they missed.
