Tonight's notes:

7pm PT:

A look at how you can save and archive content you've recorded on your TiVO, as well as how to hack the TiVO to save that data to a hard drive on a computer for later burning to DVD, plus ways to find out if you've been hijacked when connected to a Wi-Fi provider, the options for using your PC or Macintosh as a PVR (personal video recorder) and more.

8pm PT:

Different routers and using those routers to connect gaming platforms and personal computers to share net connections, the right firewall to use to be able to send and receive email, why you can't use truck stop and other public wi-fi outlets to play PSP, how not to shut down your Windows XP machine and what not to use the Task Manager for, a rant about Netflix' throttling of renter's DVD shipments and more.

9pm PT:

I very clearly re-state the answer I gave a caller earlier in the show about whether or not a Sony PSP (PlayStation Portable) can use Wi-Fi services, and the answer is complete - we take a couple of callers to task for yelling at Ms. VonSctupp about it, when actually listening to the question (the caller asked about paid Wi-Fi, like at Starbucks and in hotels, not free and open Wi-Fi) would have made all the difference. We also look at how to view Word, Excel and PowerPoint presentations without installing Office, how to upgrade Windows 98 to Windows 98 SE and more.
