On a MythTV box? I think that's a delusion for the next couple
of years.

If I get hit by a bus tomorrow, when my family finally stops grieving
and wants to watch some TV, my wife will buy a TiVo. And she knows her
way around IRIX, Solaris and MacOS X, as well as spending some user time
on Linux.

I'm irreplaceable.

(In a business context, my behavior would be insane. In a
business context, I have a plan to make money by spending
some, though.)

Tyranny is something that creeps up on you.
