  • Melbourne, Australia meet

    I live in Sydney, but there seems to be a lot of interest in a meet in Melbourne.

    Unless it's mid to late next year, I won't be attending, but I figured that you Victorians could use a thread of your own so that you can stop crapping the Sydney one

          Well it doesn't matter if u got nothing to show its more for people to show off and exchange ideas on carPC's.

          I have all my parts basiclly its just sitting in my back seat with the LCD on the passengers seat.

          It just to meet up see what people have and chat about the pc's and our idea's thats it

          If you don't have a carpc yet still come to get some ideas

                I am interested, but I can only attend from 10th Dec -> 14th Dec (leaving on the 15th) and from 6th Jan -> 30th Jan
                I should buy my Xenarc soon, although I already have a Lilliput. The carputer is in the trunk, just gotta buy a long vga cable and a long usb cable.
                Maybe even an FM modulator if I get sick of this FM Transmitter!
                I'm up for a meet even just for a chat, count me in.

                    Sounds good - I wouldn't mind meeting up with you guys, even if my carpc isn't exactly completed in time.
                    I'd only be able to meet up on weekends tho (stupid full time job)

                          will you be selling ur lilliput when you get your xenarc?

                          oh yeah, for the rest of you melb ppl to, if u want to sell 2nd hand parts for the carpc then let me know, so far i just have a normal pc box. I'd really be interested in a 7" vga touch screen, d2d power supply and um cable.... and anything else i'd need to get this project started.

                          cheers

                              I'm glad some have replyed so far thanks guys

                              Swapping or selling parts aint a bad idea either.

                              The meet will be on a weekend as most of use are to busy weekdays with jobs school and what else
