This was new to me as well.
There is an access road to each tower (dirt trail) that has to be considered, but otherwise you can farm right around them. They must be spaced apart, and there's no reason not to use the land in between as farm ground.
I heard a commercial on the radio a while back here in the USA that said BP stood for "Better Petroleum". Probably just a marketing spin, but I laughed.
I believe there are many in this community that are willing to spend $200 on a toy. If I were to purchase a new video card for ~$200 to play games on my computer, I would consider that a toy. All the current generation gaming consoles are also in that range or above. Some may not consider them toys, but I do.. and so does dictionary.com
I often said my Calc teacher in college spoke 7 languages, but not a damn one of them was english.
Don't get my wrong, I love my TiVo box, but TiVo isn't prompt with keeping up with listings changes. I own 2 units and everytime my cable provider has added/removed or shuffled channels, I have to enter a ticket. It takes about a week after the ticket is entered for it to be updated.
So while I agree that this isn't going to eliminate confusion, I have no sympathy for any hardship bestowed on TiVo's update department.
We left Gateway 3 years ago. We felt this coming, and wanted to get out before our warranties were up. We got close.
We went to Dell for a year.. then they jacked up prices. We've been buying dc5750's for 2 years. Now are moving to dc5850's. The dc5750 has been pretty solid, so far HP has been good to us. It's been nice to have a model last so long.
