       TiVo gathers your likes and dislikes of shows, and suggests other ones. This could be extended for it to suggest people to you also, hence "TiVo Matchmaker" would be my title suggestion.

       "Ok, so we can't meet on tuesday night, cos Buffy and Angel are on then, or sunday, cos 24 is on, errr... wednesday? No... Film night, isn't it?"   

       I like it - The idea is good!

       can you find someone for me who enjoys: teletubbies, red dwarf, x-files, timeteam, bodice-ripping, swash-buckling period dramas, some news programmes and who detests daytime tv. thanks, phoe.

       The closest match TIVODate comes up with is once again: -   

       George W Bush, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC 20500   

       with a direct match for Teletubbies. He also mentions the X-files and the news in his personal profile. Here are the excerpts: -   

       ...watching the X-FILES because me and Dad just laugh and laugh about how wrong they got the aliens. They don't look anything like that - they all look like Colin Powell. I also...   

       ...nope, we don't watch much NEWS, either. Dad says it'll give me a big head, which is weird because I always thought you got square eyes. Colin said everyone likes me so there's no point in watching it and he says him and his buddies have it under control but i'm not so sure because a few days ago somebody asked me about a place called Irack and I don't know what that is but Colin says just shut up or you won't get dinner so I guess it's OK, because I got my dinner and it was steak and some...   

       Unfortunately George very much enjoys daytime television. Here is an excerpt from his profile: -   

       ...daytime TV because it's always good to see if the kids turn up on Springer or Cops. I don't know where they are half the time, but Colin tells me they're OK. I've always wondered about that guy. Why does he say it like 'colon'? Isn't that a little weird...

       We don't get Red Dwarf over here (yet). Nor TimeTeam as far as I know. Bodice-ripping I like, but I can do without the swashbuckling period dramas.
phoenix, Apr 03 2003

       Bodice-ripping teletubby news programs...

       you can't rip a bodice without swashing a buckle :)

       Friendster has a nice engine for this.
LoriZ, Dec 05 2004

       Maybe [po], but a swashbuckling period sounds like a contradiction.

       So I guess the point is to round up everyone that likes television into one pool, then detonate the pool with some horrid destructive device. croissant if that's the intention. May I suggest dynamite?
