Run Joost on an AppleTV

I'm starting to get the feeling I could make a full time job out of blogging about AppleTV hacks, but this one's pretty cool. Yesterday reports started to surface that you can install the WebTV program Joost on an AppleTV. Since I don't have an AppleTV, I couldn't put this to the test.
But luckily our friends at tuaw have an AppleTV, a Joost beta account, and a hacker spirit. Apparently the program was slow to load at first, but it does work. You'll need to run Joost using VNC so that you can type in your account name and switch channels. The AppleTV remote isn't supported. But hey, you can watch Joost on your TV using AppleTV. No complaining, okay?
