Good question: I mean the MythTV home page at mythTV.org.

mmm my gopher browser didn't seem to go well on the home page ;) so I
assume you mean excessive use of graphics... I can relate to that, i'm
still not over the period that everyone had animated gifs on their
homepage. And I know mythtv's code is better, thats why i'm using it.

But seriously, I'm more concerned about the content en how its
presented. Correct me if i'm wrong here, but isn't the goal to inform
(potential) users and attract skilled programmers to the ongoing
improvement of MythTV? If not I take back anything I said and find the
website perfect as it is.
