  • Melbourne, Australia, 08/2006 - Check in.

    Hullo, been a while!

    Alright, lets get organised and have a repeat of last time. Box hill is a relatively sensible location for most, 10 mins east of the city, just off the freeway. But I'd be happy to go somewhere different, if only to give the GPS a run.

    Whos coming?
    What dates/days suit?

    I'd say lets push it 2 months or so max, so September maybe? (Let those stragglers realise theres a thread here)

    Comments! Suggestions! Committments!

    Cheers, Feral.

    Date
    Saturday August the 26th, 12 Noon

    I will be there for sure. As long as its not this month, I should be fine.

    I can make it any day of the week, so long as its not a monday or wednesday night.

    Box Hill is fine by me. Im in Berwick, so anywhere East or South East of the city would be great

    Can't wait to get some ideas from the locals

      I can do pretty much any time so long as enough notice is given
      Box Hill is alright for me also.

        Last time, hmm, under 10, but there was a good range of ideas and some very differing installations. I think this time, we must organise some wifi / ethernet connectivity. Hmm wonder how many volts my WAP uses.

            I've got a tiny USB WAP, works pretty good, but I guess you would need a hub to plug it into.

              Yep absolutely ... I'll let the guys on www.carputer.net.au know also.

              I'll bring the BMW with me, but i just bought a Pathfinder that I can fit a 17" touchscreen in now

                        PM'ed all the potentials..

                        (and today put some wiring for the LCD and power solution under the carpet..)

                        LCD has a different mounting from last time for those of you who remember..

                              Why, cant you afford to run your vehicle with the current petrol prices ? :P
