Hey folks, some of us don't run Ubuntu or Mythbuntu, so when you say something 
about "upgrading" a Myth frontend, then give a couple of Ubuntu version 
numbers, weak-minded people like me tend to get confused.

We were discussing Myth upgrades, (having wandered off topic from the initial 
NFS problem). Do you mean you upgraded the OS without touching anything Myth, 
or do you mean you upgraded from one Mythbuntu version to another, which 
would seem to include both an OS and a Myth version upgrade? Or did you mean 
upgrading the OS, then manually installing an updated Myth version?

I can see a benefit to Mythbuntu tracking Ubuntu release numbers, Mythdora 
moved to a similar scheme with FC version #s, but it means simply mentioning 
a version number could mean different things.
