    help/opinions

    Heya folks... been reading these boards for a bout a year just stirring up ideas for my setup, and I'm gettin close to having all the components finally.

    Just wanted to get some opinions on my choices

    -the computer: most likely a 433celeron/128mb ram/20GB HD/DVD ROM (most of the stuff I already have, the dvd comes w/the barebones computer)
    the good part, you can just plug it in w/a lighter adapter thing so you don't have to worry about dc-dc ps's or inverters
    http://www.atoz-ezgo.com.tw/e3032sb.htm

    -the screen which i'm gonna make a custom enclosure for... I'd love to motorize it, but i don't know if that'll be possible.
    payed $70

    -IRman
    -credit card universal remote (will this work w/irman?)(please say yes)
    (if not, could i use my ipaq for a ir remote?)
    http://shop.store.yahoo.com/wholesal...dcarunrem.html
    -serial-usb adaptor... (hope it works)

    (GPS to come later)

    software.. now that's the next question...
    i was thinkin hometheater of whatever it's called... i downloaded it and it has girder support (my main goal is not to have a keyboard/mouse)
    then winamp
    w/resumer plugin, (i think girder already has winamp support, right? or vice versa?)
    any dvd player suggestions?

    may the force be with me

    Directron...

    http://directron.com/directron/ezgo.html has the lowest price on the ezgo's from what I have found. Don't choose the options for the components off that ezgo page though. CPU and HDs are much cheaper if you buy them seperately though the directron pages.

    Search google for "directron $10 coupon". Pays for shipping
    I'm a ghost...email me if you have any questions on my old setup

    My way outdated website: http://www.poboytech.net

    FYI: I sold my 96 4Runner and bought a 1985

    doh! I ordered the one from directron, but guess what... it's not the firewire version... I guess i'm gonna get the one from atoz cuz it's the better motherboard.
