  • Finally buying a car :)

    Okay so I'm still a student, a young one at that, and I've been saving for the past year to buy myself a nice car: a 2001 Mustang Convertible.

    Its black with a nice shiny clear coat and 5-speed, which should be fun to learn to drive

    I've been preparing for this for ages; I've purchased a computer, a screen, a GPS, an OBD scanner, etc etc etc. I've even created my own hardware and firmware for a VERY specialized USB control board, which I may end up selling if it's not too much hassle.

    I've written my own frontend using Flash and Pascal. Although it may not be complete, the functionality is beautiful and exactly what I wanted. I've "acquired" over 150gb of music -- all of which is sorted with specific formatting: /Music/Artist/Album/Artist - Song Title.mp3 where all of the necessary ID3 tags are also input.

    I can't wait, I have a trailer set up for tomorrow night and a nice wad of US cash sitting on my dresser. Just had to tell some people because I can't keep that to myself

    Thanks for all the knowledge so far guys, and at the same time -- its all your fault. If this site hadn't popped up in a google search for custom arcade controls (BYOAC -- great site!), I never would have spent all this money! Thanks
