I’m Cold and Without DVR

December 4, 2007

   I am in Massachusetts this week for work, consequently I am away from my normal programming schedule and will not be able to update a number of the episodes that I normally try to cover until I return next week. However, most shows are breaking for the holidays so I shouldn’t get too far behind.
