This morning my radio recording backlog brought me to 20 July 2014 
That is not a typo - some of my unlistened-to programmes really are
that old and I fear I've lost control. What am I supposed to do - for
instance - with all those programmes I've listened to once and put to
one side as worth another hearing when I'm years behind listening to
other stuff for the first time?
Just back from three weeks away in the caravan, current umra
My podcast backlog tends to have stuff I try to keep up with,
currently a couple of months long, plus stuff to be listened to
"sometime" (up to 5 years) and stuff BOFE wants to hear (but is
never around to do so, having a job)
The landline showed 15 missed calls, all unrecognised, plus 5
answerphone messages, all recorded announcements expecting me to
believe that they were going to "disconnect your Internet".
We managed to make enough space on the PVR to record what we knew
about, but still need to find a few other new programmes on
Just don't mention the several hundred DVDs of stuff taken off
the old PVR as it filled. To manage them I set up a database.
The unwatched includes a reasonable pile of commercial recordings
still in their shrink wrap.
Every so often we deem a few as "will never be watched" and dump
them. Who knows if we will ever look again at stuff deliberately
Today I need to deal with some rampant plants (how fast can
passion flower grow?) and see if I can stow some laundry to make
room for the next load.
