tivolovers - bluraydisc - disasterporn - jamesburke - magdalenhsuli - epu - pmx - wormtownsingles - sharedcalendars


tivolovers is for TiVoholics - TiVo users and fans, or anyone curious about TiVo. If the links on the community's info page can't answer your question, then someone in the community probably can. I also try to post links to any TiVo related news that I come across, so it is a good way to keep current with the world of TiVo.

Blu-ray Disc

bluraydisc is dedicated to the next generation of optical disc. Blu-ray (BD) is competing with HD-DVD to replace DVD, and it has a much broader industry backing. It is also technologically superior, and has a larger capacity. While I feel BD is superior and likely to win in the market, the community does cover both BD and HD-DVD.


disasterporn is for fans of schadenfreude - and shows like Zero Hour, Seconds From Disaster, Air Emergency, Failure Analysis, Extreme Evidence, and other shows about engineering and other disasters. I co-maintain this with z_gryphon.

James Burke

jamesburke is a new community for fans of James Burke, author and TV host. Mr. Burke is famous for his fascinating take on the history of science and technology, and the interactions therein with the growth of society. You may know him from his TV series Connections, The Day the Universe Changed, Connections2, Connections3, or After the Warming, or his books Connections, The Day the Universe Changed, The Axemaker's Gift, The Pinball Effect, The Knowledge Web, Circles, or Twin Tracks.

Magdalen Hsu-Li

magdalenhsuli is a community for fans of the talented singer-songwriter, Magdalen Hsu-Li. Magdalen has been compared to Ani DiFranco, Tori Amos, and other talented female musicians. Her moving lyrics and powerful voice make her a musical force to be reckoned with.

Eyrie Productions, Unlimited

epu is a community for fans of Eyrie Productions, Unlimited. USENET's largest producer of quality fanfiction since 1991! EPU is known for stories such as Undocumented Features, Hopelessly Lost, Gods Willing, Street Fighter: Warrior's Legacy, and Neon Exodus Evangelion. ludo fore putavimus

Pacific Media Expo

pmx is a community for Pacific Media Expo - which was held for the first time on May 29-31, 2004 in Anaheim, CA. PMX was founded by former Anime Expo staffers to be more than the traditional anime convention, it is an Asian media convention - covering music, anime, live action film, and even Japanese Wresting. PMX is the first convention to stage full scale concerts, using the Anaheim Arena. PMX is planned to be an annual event.

Central MA and Worcester Singles

Worcester, MA is semi-affectionately known as Wormtown - hence, wormtownsingles. It is a nascent singles community for Worcester and the surrounding central MA area.

Shared Calendars

I set up sharedcalendars for different calendars and event postings. Right now I have a nightly cron job that posts a simple list of calendar dates and historical events. If anyone else would like to post their own calendars, etc, just ask for posting access.

I got all excited about The Day The Universe Changed being broadcast and spent a few moments trying to figure out what was wrong with the link before I realised that the post was almost exactly a year old.

Quick question. I was given as as a birthday gift in 5/04 -- but I've never activated any subscription. Because it'd sat unused for a year, I loaned it to a friend, who hooked it up, and told me that after working for a month, now it won't even do timed recording w/o a subscription. So, I guess I need a subscription -- is there any way I can get a better deal than the offer on the front of the TiVo site? Do you get comission if I refer you or tivolovers? etc

Yeah, Series2 TiVos are doorstops without a sub - unless it is one of the Pioneer or Toshiba DVD-R/TiVo units with TiVo Basic included.

There isn't really a better deal than the $299 lifetime, or the $12.95 monthly - unless you're adding an additional TiVo at $6.95/month.

But I am in the TiVo Rewards program, so if you give tivo @ megazone . org as the referral email when you activate, I'll get rewards points. :-)
