    Recording terms

    So a friend and I was talking about a program that was on tonight, she said "oh yeah, I taped it". And just wondering if anyone else uses that term? I know I do, I wonder if it's an age thing.
    Pray I find more menial tasks to accomplish or you will be hearing from me again and I assure you that my commentary on forums of public opinion will be most unkind.

    I still say "Tape it." I grew up in the 80s when VCRs where pretty much it.

    My wife says "DVR it," but she watches more TV than I do (which is close to none).

    I just say record... because I don't re use words that don't belong... like people who use the word "Troll" when someone is sharing their opposing view "YOU'RE WRONG, YOU'RE A TROLL YOU STUPID TROLL!!!"

    Nah, I just say record... it doesn't seem right to say tape... because there's no tape.
