  • More Preliminary Progress

    Made some more progress over the last few days. I still don't consider this the install phase, more preparation really. In any case, nearly all the components I will be using for the base install have been delivered to my house (Lilluput, P1900, cords and adapters, etc), so I can't wait to get done with the semester and get home to start working. I picked up a cheap USB trackball from Walmart, for the cases where a touchscreen won't cut it (right-click, for example). I'm starting to get used to it, but I figure once I get everything set up, I shouldn't need it often.

    I also hacked the cord coming off the power brick, and soldered in a molex connector. Works great, and now I don't have to buy another brick or sacrifice being able to use it in the house. The bottom pic also shows the vinyl I added to the top of the case.

    I think I've got just about all of my major concerns out of the way now. Look for a lot of updates from me around next Monday, that's when I'll really be getting into full swing. In the meantime, let me know what you think!

    MY04 Subaru WRX, San Remo Red,
    Mac Mini carputer (Macindash) nearly complete. Current capabilities: Media playback, touchscreen interface, dual OS via VPC, iGuidance navigation. Future plans: Video capture, OBD-II interface, more racing stuff.
