On a beautiful morning at somewhere of the Earth ..
one of the three gentlemen raise one surprise question..
“Where did you put your company mail server ?”
the other one answered..
“I put it somewhere at private hosting company .. (Locus)”..
and the other one.. added..
“might want to consider GMail hosted mail.. as can also point the MX there..
and the chat will also work and all..”
.. here come.
“But I rather put it at our own office at which I know..
all my email is on RAID 5 hardisk..
which is having nightly backup to a remote site..
if anything ever happened..
I know my email is safe there and not too worried before going to sleep..”
if it is using Google Mail Hosted services ..
if one day.. “it happened to be inaccessible..” for whatever reason.
and your “CEO” or someone above is asking you what happened..
what number did you dial to get
the real thing up & running again ?..
None .. as it is free..
so we tend to take it for granted..~.
.. yeah.. sometime streamyx also suck.. but we got the number to call in and complain.. and made us excused…
at least at some point you would not able to see the CEO “jumping” that much…
p/s : how bout yours ?
Let’s see how long that WEBSITE WITH XMLTV FILES for MALAYSIA’s ASTRO THAT CAN BE USED ON MYTHTV lasts … 😎
keh keh keh keh …
you can also use tv_cat to concatenate multiple xmltv files into one, and pass it to mythfilldatabase in one go.
Got a few other useful tv_* utilities, e.g. tv_to_text.
Having good content can only get you so far unless you also provide a good atmosphere to comment in
I write a music blog for my audience research class. I’m new to blogging and I want them to be good! So any advice you guys could give me would be great
oh.. haven’t done exploring all the utilities
that come with the myth app..
google still working even while i was away.. 😎
complex post. upright one detail where I contest with it. I am emailing you in detail.
Guys…. if you look at the Astro website (http://www.astro.com.my) they now publish their complete tv listings (albeit channel by channel) in XML / RSS format. For example TV1 is at http://www.astro.com.my/channels/rtm1/ with the RSS feed being at http://www.astro.com.my/rss/channels.asp?sid=M038. Although I am not as technical as many on this forum, surely this must make life easier?
Great idea chaggy!
I wrote a script to convert the RSS feed(s) on astro’s website into XMLTV for mythtv:
If anyone tries it, let me know how it works. Instructions are at the top of the script.
Astro stopped their RSS feeds some months ago. I wrote yet-another script based on the EPG as of January 2011.
