Time and money should be free for all
The last few weeks have been rather busy. Last week was hectic as there was only three effective working days (I had one day off and there was a public holiday). Just when I thought things were going to wind down a bit my kids got one of those majorly unpleasant stomach flues, after which I managed to catch it. Yay.
I haven't yet gotten my CV updated, but I have managed to start work on that. Once I get that done I will finally be able to concentrate on getting the new site engine up to a deployable state.
Dreams of PVRs
I have been interested in the MythTV project for a long time now. MythTv is a PVR (Personal Video Recorder) software for Linux, which has some very cool networking features. Properly configured, you can have a badass MythTV backend server hidden somewhere in your house taking care of all the recording, playback and live TV stuff. Then you add a MythTV frontend which can be a rather minuscule machine which you connect to your TV, for showing the stuff off the server.
If you combined a Mac mini with the Apple DVI to Video Adapter and an M-Audio Sonica Theater you could well have yourself a very nice little setup. Assuming, of course, you'd set up a MythTV backend server as well.
