Re: okay?

Channel 4 used to show the old Godzilla movies late at night, we did a lot of programmed recording at the time.

We also had a later model vcr with a barcode reader on the remote. For a while tv listings were published with barcodes beside in an effort to make life easier for those who found setting a clock difficult / sell new vcrs to people who already had them. It was a little pen-type scanner that had to be dragged across the barcode and almost never worked.
