Fixed permissions issue in the original thread. Moved requests to that forum.
Why is the forum we are supposed to post to locked?
Can a forum member use this thread to sponsor a specific innovation. For example, I'm willing to sponsor someone develop a USB interface for both BoomzBox and XM that also has audio over USB for both controllable via Ride Runner - $100.

There are several other innovations I'm willing to sponsor because I either don't have the equipment to build or expertise to program. I think this could be a great way to link the thinkers with the tinkerers. Probably need to establish guidelines for it to be fair, i.e., sponsors must deposit funds into an MP3Car coffer before announcing availability. Takers will have to demonstrate their ability to fullfill the task, etc. etc.
