Aye :)

BTW, I've done a bit of myth hacking in the past but am just slowly 
coming back to Myth dev'ing after a fairly large break.

I've got some nice ideas about some add ons mythweb (I'm a php dev by 
day!), which I'd like your feedback on.

Specifically, I want to create an AJAX Remote Conrol module that will 
use the Network Socket Control capabilities to remotely control your 
frontends.... That way you could be e.g. viewing the listings and click 
a button that changes to that channel on a given frontend... would be 
pretty handy for web tablets that could act as a glorified remote control :)

If the server side part of the AJAX stuff was written nicely, you could 
even create fancy desktop widgets things to control your frontend which 
would be cool on OSX (tho' I don't use OSX myself).

I've done some socket stuff in PHP before and figure this would be 
pretty easy to do. What do you think? If you like the idea I'll work on 
implementing it in the next few weeks.

Also have some improvements I'd like to make to the music and movies 
modules, but nothing particularly ground breaking.
