Silly for the Night

Every time I told my TiVo to record a show for a season or to make a "Wishlist," it would create a whole new artificial intelligence to deal with the task.

One small thing: the task didn't require some full on AI, so they tended to get bored. I think I learned how to communicate with a couple of them, but, for the most part, I pretty much just felt guilty that my TiVo pretty much brought into being these sentient intelligences then enslaved them to do something pretty menial for an AI.

And if you've known me long enough, you know how guilty I can feel about the smallest, silliest things. . .like sending the fiancee down a one-way street and nearly getting her killed.
