A few weeks ago, a user posted on the KnoppMyth forum about a KnoppMyth
Installation Party. Great idea I thought. However he is in Europe and
I cannot say I have any plans of going to Europe within the next 9
months... At any rate, I thought why not parties all over the world?
So, we started chatting it up on the KnoppMyth forum and we have folks
interested hosting parties! We (I actually) decided on Saturday,
February 16th as the day of the party.
Well, I thought... Why not open this up. Although KnoppMyth would
be/have been the installation method at WKIP, the focus would be on
MythTV. So, I've chatted with Dennis (MythDora) and Dave (Mythubntu)
about a Worldwide MythTV Installation Party. Both liked the idea!
The idea is simple, get together and hopefully introduce new people to
MythTV. Here is what we have in mind:
Each location would have a host. The host would be responsible for
finding a location for the party. Ideally, the location would have
Internet access, cable and hopefully be able to get a good OTA signal.
Enough room to work for folks that would be building systems, etc.
At the party, MythTV would be installed using your distro of choice.
It would be nice to have folks step up and do things like demo editing,
I've created an area on the KnoppMyth forum to start the discussion on the various locations.
