I feel like I'm drinking from a fire hose, reading this list. And while
I'm usually good at finding stuff in Google, for some reason my searches
on Myth are not fruitful. It's good to know so much is going on though.

I think I have a 3 hour live buffer, so that should be an easy workaround.
I had just left live tv running overnight to see if it was stable. I don't
think this will normally bite my, I'll just have to be careful with the
kids watching SpongeBob marathons.
