Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.

22 August 2004

With 150 TV channels, typing my personal TV schedule into my database each week becomes a real chore.

Why doesn’t any site allow you to really make your own schedule? Am I the only intelligent developer in the country? I want to check a few boxes and highlight all airings of Seinfeld, South Park and Friends. I want to have a list of all the movies of the week, check those I want to see so all their appearances are highlighted, then uncheck them once I’ve seen them. (And, while we’re at it, rate the movies after I saw them, so as to fill the database.) I want the same functionality for each individual episode of the series I watch. I want to receive alarms by mail for the really important shows, and have a personalized web page reminding me all that I checked for each day. I want to code this myself, but the satellite operators don’t give out their schedules easily. Why not? I only want to provide a free service to their subscribers! Heck, as an individual Cansatellite subscriber paying more than 60 € per month, I should be entitled to downloadable schedules for myself if I want them!
