I work for Catalyst IT, an awesome New Zealand company that works mostly with open source software. I spend most of my time maintaining the software that runs the .nz domain name system. I also build grid computers and generally muck around with fun stuff.
I've been running MythTV at home for a long time now, which usually receives very high levels of wife approval. One day just before my wifes favourite programme started recording I started recompiling a kernel, the resulting unwatchable recording caused a major drop in the wife approval factor (WAF) which resulted in me writing mythtv-status so that'd never happen again. It turns out plenty of other people have found this useful as well.
Because of this interest in MythTV I'm going to run the MythTV mini-conf.
Susanne and Brooke (my wife and daughter respectively) will both be on the partners programme.
