I'm using MythTV for my TV recording system. Things can go wrong from time to time with such a self-built, on-the-edge system, causing some recordings to fail. That's why I like to keep notified about any finished recordings, especially while I'm on the road, when it really counts that recordings work. So I taught my media PC with two lines of code to send me a tweet for each finished recording, using Horde's excellent Twitter and OAuth libraries.
