Houses: expensive things

I’m buying a house. Or rather, I’m going to. The search officially started this week (first viewing on Monday), and continues until further notice.

So – anyone expecting good Christmas presents, best start resigning yourselves to disappointment!

Mythbox: still not working (properly)

Well. Replacement parts have arrived, latest version of Ubuntu installed, MythTV configured. Lovely.

Except, well, it’s completely unstable. I think it’s a heat issue, possibly the northbridge. As soon as anything intensive kicks in, it hard locks and needs a power cycle.

So I think Mike’s old mobo might get an airing…wonder how well ubuntu will take to having the motherboard replaced on a live installation?
