No problems at all, glad to be doing work for someone who is defending the land where I build the carPC
In the jungle war, we didn't have the Internet, or email, or even very good snail mail. Trans-Pacific calls were rare, and generally for emergencies. Our short-timer's calendars were "xeroxed" copies. We usually had something like a map of the U.S., or of our home state, or Vietnam, with lines that divided the map into as many pieces as the days of our tour (Army, Navy and Air Force: 12 months; Marines: 13 months). We'd mark off or color in the days as they went by, just as your calendar does electronically. We definitely didn't have pictures of draft board lovelies. Actually, I had two short-timer's calendars -- one for the first year, and the second for a five-month extension. And, from about six months on, I could always tell you how "short" I was, to the day.
No matter what you're doing over there, thanks again for doing it. Guys from my era of warriors may not say much about it, but we respect your service. You stood up when the call came, said "I will", and headed off to do whatever was asked. We know that takes guts, and we're grateful. I'm proud to call you brother.
blk02si, thanks for letting us hijack your thread for a bit. Back to you.
If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

Got this in the mail today, drive works great, seems quite fast data with transfer in my initial tests through USB and IDE. It also passed the boot test so its will work as an OS drive.
Shown here in the male IDE>CF adaptor.
is it faster than your CF drive?
I'm not sure yet, I'm going to install an OS on it and see how it runs and compare it to the CF. Even though this drive is an actual hard disk I think it will still benefit from running XPE on it so the OS doesn't attempt to write to the platter when there is some potholes about to be hit at 50mph
I agree with you...I like the idea of still being able to do hot shut downs and not have to worry about the OS getting corrupted.
You've got a PM!! $$

I had been inquiring about purchasing one of your aluminum chassis back in late may/early june.
Well, believe it or not I was sent to Jail for 30 days for speeding on my Motorcycle last summer. I was leaving a nightclub in DC and heading up the BW parkway to my house late at night. I did not know I was being pursued, and when I slowed down due to deer on the roadway I was overtaken. I got out last week. It was quite a shock, but its finally over with and I am now free.
Anyway, I see that you are now selling complete bolt in carputers utilizing your chassis. Have you determined a final price for these? I'm still looking at ordering from you, but this really has me interested in getting a complete system from you.
Keep up the good work, and if you have any additional info on the specs/final price let me know.
