Thanks for the kind comments Ben!

I've been meaning to get down to doing some proper documentation for a 
while now (my Gentoo/MythTV/ivtv howto is still 90% finished after god 
knows how many months ;) but I've been really busy at work (I've finally 
managed to convince my boss that good file servers are a good thing and not 
a frivolous toy, and proved it by trebling our throughput at minimal cost, 
and he now wants millions of the things, as well as IPSec VPN's and rsync 
cron jobs, and as the only Linux bod in the company I've been a bit snowed 
under) and have had very little time to write anything, let alone do any 
normal stuff like eating or drinking. My mythbox has definitely proved its 
worth though!

Anyway, data is now being copied onto the shiny new RAID array, only 400GB 
more to go, so I should have myself a bit more free time now, as well as a 
damned pay rise and a holiday I hope. I'll delve into the wiki in a day or
