Couple of funny stories to add..

1. We're on vacation, and we walk into our hotel, on the first day,
and my daughter (3-y/o) says "Daddy, I want to watch Sesame Street
please". My wife and I both chucked, then tried to explain how, on
other people's TV's, things only come on at a certain time, and we'd
have to wait until tommorrow, at 10am, to watch Sesame street.

2. I've gone through some stabiltiy/tuning issues in the past with our
primary frontend, so my daughter is familar with the concept of
"fixing the frontend." "Daddy! The frontend crashed again! please

3. When we buy her a new DVD (Veggietales, etc) she asks me to "rip it
Daddy, so I can watch it"

4. We're in the store, and she sees the display for the "Cars" DVD.
She matter-of-factly tells the sales person, "We have that on Myth at

quite a few more stories, but I've had the same experiences.
