    The future

    what id like to see in the future for frodoplayer would be a frodochatroom for nearby frodo users. it would be really cool to be driving and pull up next to another vehicle running frodoplayer, and chat with them, or express our frustration with their driving ability. You could also share your music directory, or broadcast your song to nearby drivers. A connection would obviously require transmitter/reciever hardware but could be implimented nonetheless. i realize this will no doubt be in the future. I really cant wait to use it, so i can verbally abuse the poor drivers, and bring my road rage to unprecedented levels. With the help of frodoplayer, i believe all this and more can happen.

    Up here in Massachusettes we have hand signals that do all that (except the sharing songs part).

    Can't two WiFi enabled carputers do just that? I have a cheap 5dbi magnetic antenna that works about 800 feet away (line of site) tho it could be more 800 is about as far away from my router as I can get. Though I pick up me neighbors wLAN from about 1/2 mile away, but I have no idea what kind of antenna he has... he's a crazy old man... i'm talkin sittin-on-the-back-porch-with-a-newspaper-and-double-barreled-shotgun crazy...

    What we need is a universal, WiFi compatable, carputer protocall to be installed in all front-ends.

    What we need is a program that looks at something like MMC database, compares the two and transfers any files that arn't on one, to that one.

    Automatic filesharing. You'll never know which songs you have. Just have a prompt that says "There is another peer2peer.... er car2car capable vehical within range"

    User IDs could be based on plate tags.
