W00t! This Times article illustrates our latest favorite project: We’ve just finished our 3rd install of a Mac mini media server in the home. It’s beautiful. As this writer says, the mini replaces almost all your other home entertainment hardware.

Cable Freedom Is a Click Away
By NICK BILTON
A computer, with software upgrades and a wireless keyboard and mouse, can replace cable service.
I’m giving myself a little more time to budget for the right mini, because the one I use for my home server playground is a little underpowered, so I just recently bought an HDMI adapter for my laptops, so we are nightly plugging in a MacBook to the TV & stereo and watching all our stuff that way. It’s totally satisfying.
