My wife has various pictures of her and her sibling's childhoods. [insert evil laugh here] I imagine that my in-laws will be forming a lynch mob sometime around Christmas.

Really want to know how they did it? Go back and take a look at their stats for the past 7 or 8 years. Notice how they almost always were in the top four finishers but most often had the suckiest "defense" stats? Care to guess what they fixed this year?
As for the other teams, they didn't place first but they definitely didn't place last. Those that actually played had to beat out nearly 400 other entrant teams (we're talking thousands of people here!). They all busted their humps to get there.
It is hilarious though, seeing team points graphed over time, with the Bossman narrating (similar to the effect of shifting into the next higher gear when the guy you're racing thinks you were at top end). Before you start buying torches and pitchforks, he was respectful of the other teams. Mebbe we can get him to digitize the commentary? (hint, hint!)

Example 1: The local Walmart dumped their shelf of Linksys PAP2's for ten bucks a pop. I donated them to Sploitcast and they were (mostly) given away at this year's Shmoocon.
Example 2: I just picked up an ATI HDTV video card for thirty bucks. I think the little OTA antenna may be missing but the price was low enough to be interesting.
Now my only problem is that I'm running out of slots.

- you need to run xamp as the mythtv user at least once from the command line
- and you need to create the /home/mythtv/.xmonline folder (as the mythtv user) before you run it from the command line
Other than that, it's a pretty straight-forward install. My notes are here.
