Thanks from another attendee - The Build-in was a lot of fun, and I
learned a great deal about putting together my own MythTV box. It was
great to finally meet some of my fellow ALErs after lurking on this list
for the better part of 8+ years. :)
I look forward to seeing y'all again soon, and thanks again to Preston
for getting the Build-in organized! (And to Chris, and all the Emory
folks ... And every whose name I'm forgetting. :-) )
