    Do any of you young’uns remember MythTV?

    We blocked ads when they were a part of the video way before internet ads were ever a thing. We’ll be fine.

      Did you ever hear the tragedy of MythTV? I thought not. It’s not a story the Youtubes would tell you. It’s a Pirate legend. MythTV was a Dark Lord of the Pitates, so powerful and so wise he could use the PCs to influence the airwaves to create watchable TV… He had such a knowledge of the PCs that he could even keep the shows he cared about from dying. The dark side of the PC is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice XBMC everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

    If there is a will, there is a way. I trust the smart people to find a way.
