Heh. I sent a refractometer to xris (Chris Peterson) some time ago just
as a general 'Thank You' for the time he has put into mythweb. He seemed
flabbergasted at the time but think about it: Control your recording
device from anywhere you are? That capability is just about the coolest
shiite around. Besides, if a refractometer helps improve his beer, I can
only assume the quality of his code would follow.
