My work machine has a toasted harddrive, my TiVo's hard drive is also toasted which will cost $100 to get replaced under warranty, my cable splitter is busted so I can either watch cable TV or use the Internet but not both, I've had to manage the fact that first feature I designed from scratch for the next version of System.Xml was optimized for the wrong scenarios and should probably be pulled from beta 1 of the .NET Framework, and I just found out the Deli next door simultaneously stopped carrying both Mike's Hard Iced Tea and Bacardi Silver O3 since it looks like I was the primary customer buying either beverage.

I fucking hate Mondays.

Shit happens. Not only Mondays.

Agree with Oleg.
BTW, also, it would be good to know which feature we should bypass from current bits...

On Tivo front, you could buy a replacement drive rather than deal with the warranty hassle (it took me several weeks to get back a reconditioned DSR6000 when mine broke. Luckily, I have two...). http://www.weaknees.com sells some good kits, and all you have to do is swap in the new hard drive.

On the feature front, don't feel too bad - that's a fact of life when creating software.
