Ok, I am WAY behind on new technology. The other day,
I picked up my first DVD recorder at Costco for $180.
See, I'm building this entertainment center (I'll post
some pics a little later in ABPW), so I thought that it
would be real nice to have one of these things.
I have about 200 episodes of Norm from 1989 to
present - missing about 18 or 19 I think. Some taped
from PBS on their original air date, some from HGTV
when they were still showing them. Some EP ;-((but
Anyhow, I have these 200 "shows". Thought it would be
cool to transfer them "in the original order" to DVD. Why
original order? If you're asking, then you're not anal
enough to be collecting Norm!
A couple of observations (still in season 1 (1989)):
1. Norm was a lot fatter back then (opposite
2. No Bessey's, just pipes.
3. No brad nailer, just a hammer & 4 pennys.
4. No guard on his TS (now either) - sorry, me too.
5. At this point, I figure that I am about 10 years
behind Norm - but I was 30+ behind when I started
Of course, LRod's site is the best for NYW info, but
I am going to be watching (as I record) all 200
episodes in order.
Hope I don't get Norm'ed out. My goal is to have them all
tranferred to DVD before the new season (Jan '06),
so I can record them direct to DVD.
Why do this?
Don't know exactly - but I did learn a lot from them
over the years.
