heh, never thought of that one
Gold doesn't oxidize like copper.
heh, yeah, no idea what the buzz is about plasma screens...
But I said 10,000 on one customers install we did on Sat. The Pioneer Elite. 52" Never said that was my choice. Dude, I got sore *** biceps now.
Also we warned him about using the Linksys media player though the TV and leaving it on for longs time, since it will burn in.
the computer kind allows much better resolution when you wanna play nasa during those mars missions...
We all opt for DLP projectors. I may get one for 1400 buks only cost. Home Theater kind, not computer kind.
nasa tv on a quarter of the screen (mplayer rulez), and self-written apps to show current position of space station/shuttle/whatever on the rest of the screen
you surely meant to write inexpensive, as cheap really means flimsily built and shoddy
I told my friend I thought that it was cheap.
and they happily part with the large sums of cash they feel they won't need for the time being, buying inferior technology
And yes, getting alot of money from customers is great, especially since they are generous and nice.
heh, can't blame you, I'd also do it, but I have a life (searching for a SO is a full time job these days)
I am only helping him install some lately, my job is computers. I'm a programmer, I just do this for fun and some extra money.
the PC acts as a complete multimedia center which, unlike those crappy MS boxes, is actually extensible
I don't even have a Home Theater on my PC. :) Just a Dolby Digital using Optical hooked up to my Audigy 2 NX.
yeah, as long as the amount of noise generated freaks the hell out of the neighbor
I'm not a sound freak, but all my friends are. They own B&W million dollars Kevlar speakers. Me I don't care, tin can is fine. :)
yeah, well, I wouldn't trust admin of my switches/routers to anyone else :D
I also am a network dude, by we just hired Cisco to take over our switches at www.aig.com
thats where I work on Wall Street. O yeah, the orange fiber cables. We have alot but not as many as the spagehtti of Cat5.
I'm a university researcher, doing network and information systems (I know it all on all the others)
Where do you work? Why Linux for your Multimedia PC? What distro?
Linux on the multimedia PC, simple, I can extend it, I can add things, I can do things that were not supposed to be done (see the nasa spiel above)
also, I feel like it handles the load much better than that other so called "operating system".
distro is the same as the carPC... Linux From Scratch (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org)
