  • Ok ppl...Please READ!

    Ok i think for all you newbies in here. Thanks to psalm for creating this page. Now most of the stupid questions being asked in this group will no longer be asked again right?

      They're not stupid questions, some have just been asked before. I'm sure you were born with all knowledge of MP3cars and never asked anyone anything or had to research something.. give people a LITTLE bit of a break.

          Ya know, I'm just a beginner at this, and I already knew most of that info...

          If someone is going to go thru the trouble of creating an FAQ, it needs to be very through and technical in nature.

            ImpoSSter: but just take a look over the course or a week and see how many questions that FAQ answers. If people use it, it could be a great asset and decrease the somehwat repetitive nature of sopme of the discussions. And it also covers a lot of the 'hey I'm a newbie what do i have to do' questions. And im not saying there bad questions at all just now theres a consolidated place for them.

            Oh and if your SOOO (notice the sarcastic nature of that word) smart then why don't you just go write that highly technical FAQ?

              Hey catlas, your section is 2.3.1 but with all of the troubles I was having with my email server maybe I missed something?

                I didn't say I was SOOOO smart. I said I was a beginner, but even I knew the info listed there.

                You know, if my quest proves successfull, I will be glad to post the information so that others may benefit. Seems that a lot of people associated with MP3 cars or Carputers would rather just keep all their info to themselves. That's their prerogative, but it doesn't help anybody else.

                    ImpoSSter: What do you mean people keep information to themselves? Really? Then why do web sites like mp3car.com, and many others exist. Why are there so many subdomains? Why does #mp3car exist? And why do so many users make web sites to post theyre info?

                      No offense to pslam, but the FAQ only answeres the most basic of questions, which are already answered on the www.mp3car.com page. In addition, there are spelling, punctuation and capitalization mistakes throughout. However, as far as I am concerned the layout is excellant. I think we all need to collaborate on a FAQ.

                      Now that I think of it, Microsoft Word has an excellant FTP feature which enables you to edit documents directly over the Internet. I have a public FTP server. Those who are interested could contact me, and I could set this thing up. We could work on the FAQ together until we have something decent, then convert it to HTML and have moon post it on the mp3car.com page....Anyone interested?

                        That sounds like a good idea, Aaron. I've been lurking here, building and improving my mp3car rig for a year now. I also am a FAQ editor and maintainer (not a word, but you get the idea) for the intranet at my work. I'd enjoy helping out.

                          raZor,
                          I have been to many of the sites you refer to. Any many list: "I did this and I did this and this...". Mostly, they do not get into the technical nitty gritty of HOW they did it.

                          Don't get me wrong, there are a few sites out there that get quite technical, but you have to SEARCH for 'em. This thread pertains to making a FAQ so you don't have to search. Most newbies would rather make a redundant post on this board than actually do any searching themselves.

                          I think that once my setup is done, I will post as much as I can on how I get it running.

                            I just took a look at that so called FAQ--now this is just my plain honest opinoin--it just plain blows. I mean, anyone who has ever built a computer and hooked up their stereo system could easily accomplish any of those so-called problems without it--I also know there are some who come here that need that help. However what about that bigger problems that everyone brings up? Like shielding IDE cables? Or tips on mounting HDDs? Or even how to make a dc-dc PSU? This site has generated a wealth of info on the intricasies ( i kow i spelled that wrong) of building an MP3Car. Somebody needs to step up, sift through all the posts, and build a FAQ on the questions that keep popping up.

                              HappyPuppy,

                              I couldn't have said it better myself.

                              I'm sure someone worked hard to put that FAQ together, but it leaves a lot to be desired.
