About Me

I'm Jason Thompson. I'm a computer programmer for RSI. Often times when I come home from programming, I like to program. I spend most of my time fixing annoyances on my network. Are you bored yet?


I use two machines to run my myth system. The frontend is a machine called SPOT. Here's a little about SPOT

  • Ubuntu
  • Via Motherboard
  • Athlon XP 2200+
  • 512MB RAM
  • 10 Gig Harddrive cannobolized off an old computer
  • PVR 350 (Used simply for remote control)
  • NVidia GeForce 5600 Graphics
  • DVD Drive
  • One For All Remote. I bought it at Wal-Mart and it works really good!

Okay, now here's a little about the backend. It's pretty temporary since we've had hardware failors and we're thinking about moving.

  • Debian
  • Via Motherboard
  • Athlon XP
  • 512MB RAM
  • 2x 200 Gigs Harddrives just for recordings (LVMed)
  • 2x PVR 250 MCE cards
  • ATI Radeon 9200 Graphics
  • Other computer stuff
  • No remote?



I'm not working on anything official right now (except confidential work junk).


  • BS in Computer Science
  • Minor in Networking


I hope you enjoy my contributions to the Myth Documentation. If you want to compliment an article or (more importantly) give me suggestions on how I can improve the documents I've done, that'd be great.
