Chuck has just announced his impending journey into the undiscovered country. Many congratulations, the TiVo is a marvelous device. The kids are pretty fun too, most of the time!

However, getting Tiffany to agree to a TiVo is only a small step on the road to unbridled use of power. I tested my theory of Impending Parental Acquisition with a video camera and a new computer (to edit the video, dontcha know?). Once I realized the power that I held, I went for the brass ring. I got power tools, particularly a table saw, simply by justifying it as "for the baby". It is an awesome power, and with awesome power comes awesome responsibility.

Of course, one more kid and I'd've got a drill press...
