“Now Playing” 1

One of the things I like about my new MP3 player is that, if I shut it down in the middle of a podcast and later turn it back on, it gives me a chance to pick up right where I left off with two clicks.

I just discovered that Comcast’s On Demand does something similar, except that it takes three clicks. I paused a show, then went downstairs to fight with Windows (Windows put up a titanic struggle, but I wrestled it down to the electrons for three falls) and came back to find the On Demand main menu screen on display.

But I was able to restart my program at the 27 minute mark.

    It’s 11 PM, & this just struck me as hysterical.

    Beating up on Windows & playing with Comcast.

    I must be more tired than I thought.
