About Me

Born Jan 1, 1982 (Extrapolate my age from that)

I'm a Distribution Engineer working for Nebraska Public Power District in Kearney Nebraska. I'm also a member of IEEE. I design Distribution power lines. I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln in 2005 with a degree in Electrical Engineering. I'm married and have one child, both of which love MythTV.

I started of using Red Hat Linux in 2001 and moved to Suse, then Mandrake before settling on Gentoo as my Linux of choice in 2003.

My first PVR was a Replay TV which had the skip recording ability. It died and become unusable. I couldn't live without the "commercial skip" feature which was already squashed by Hollywood. Thanks to google, I found MythTV and have been a happy user ever since. I first installed MythTV version .17 on a Gentoo Linux box and have been upgrading and improving ever since.

I lurk on the mailing list, occasionally answering an easy question. I can also be found on the Gentoo Forums.

If you really want to know more about me, by homepage is http://www.brodine.com/ although it is completely non-linux related. (My MythTV Link is passworded, so don't even try :) )
