                  Let's see...
                  I estimate that I've spent 1000 hours over the past 4 years reading MP3Car.com and building my machine. I bill myself out at $60/hr (I know, cheap) so that would come to $60,000.
                  Minus hardware, coffee, and pizza expenses, of course.
