I gave a MythNetTV talk at linux.conf.au yesterday, and it went remarkably well. Hardly any fruit was thrown. I’m quite please that so far two patches have been sent to me after the talk, and questions in the talk promoted a release of version 7.
I should share the following resources from the talk: the slide deck, my cheat sheet, the MythTV book chapter beta which I wrote while gathering my thoughts for the talk. The last one is probably the most useful, as its pretty much an expanded version of the talk.
A historical note from November 2020: the mythtvbook.com website is now offline.
Some simple observations on the Wrest Point hotel… The room is nice, but nothing fancy. The in room internet is free, but doesn’t work. Most importantly, the breakfast place in the hotel plays Weird Al while you’re eating.
After some initial uncertainty because of the economy, I am travelling to Hobart today for linux.conf.au 2009. I’m speaking at the MythTV mini-conf about MythNetTV, as well as a new MythTV book I have been working on for a while. It will be good to get there, although I wont manage that until about 10pm tonight.
It looks to me like the linux.conf.au domain name is working again. I wonder what effect that will have on registrations? It would be interesting to see a graph of registration behavior over time…
