Join me on a tour of my house as I show how I use open source software in nearly every room. This episode also is the first to use my new intro. This episode is NOT sponsored by the Apple iPad.

You really have a lot of nice stuff in your house, but you'll have quite a high electricity bill, don't you?
I loved your episode about Linux in your house (in fact I watched it twice). I have a similar geek-streak in my house, with Asterisk for my phone system, 12TB UnRaid server, Ubuntu Media servers throughout, OmniFi Car MP3 player with wireless link to my Linux network when the car enters the garage, IPCop firewall in front of it all, and 8 Linux servers (one with VMWare & about 7 virtual Linux servers) all chewing up my power.
But hey, I'm a free man! Lovin' it.
Keep up the great work on the shows. I'm going to try and study how you do this with Cinellera. I'm also a recording engineer and looking to throw out my Mac OSX rig and replace with Linux & Ardour. Wish me luck!
Looks like you need some mythtv metadata.
Isn't zfs on Ubuntu a bit slow through fuse? I've also heard development has mostly stopped. I wonder if it might be better to run OpenSolaris and virtualize Ubuntu, or even run Ubuntu, virtualize OpenSolaris and just pass the sata disks through. Personally I'm waiting for Btrfs.
Thanks Daniel. I will check into the metadata. As far as ZFS is concerned "slow" is a relative term. I think ZFS is a little slower than ext3 or ext4, but I am sharing over NFS so I really don't notice a difference. My HD videos play just fine all over the house :) I am using ZFS for the ease of management and data protection features. I am not sure I would hold my breath on btrfs. I am have no contact into that project, but with the acquisition of Sun, Oracle now has several teams of engineers working on ZFS. I don't think there are as many working on btrfs.
Great episode. It's awesome to see people using Open Source in the household. I can't wait to see how you built that arcade machine. Also, love the credit music.
Hey I liked the video a lot. I currently have a Macbook and want to dual boot my laptop in the same configuration you were showing with your Pro. I want to use OS X for "emergencies" since my office is Mac based but I am switching myself to Ubuntu.
Do you have a tutorial, or know of any, on how to safely configure my Macbook (running 10.6) to dual boot with Ubuntu? I saw a few sites and wasn't too secure with them and figure it would be wise to ask you directly. Please let me know if you can point me in the right direction.
