Firefly—an iTunes server for AppleTV

I found this on the ‘Net today, downloaded it, and set it up.
It’s running happily, and I have a screen
session busily copying all my mp3’s from my Mac Pro downstairs to
the 1TB external drive hooked up to the AppleTV.

This is a great solution, since it means we can have a music server available all the time
without having to keep my power-hungry, 4-core machine on all the time.

Apparently there is another AppleTV plugin that does BitTorrent,
so I may at last be able to turn off my computer at night!
