i cant believe this thing is still going...and now 12 posts strong...WTF!!!
I'm 34, live in the Seattle area, and work in software usability.
I started my CarPC project last fall after dreaming for several years about how to get my mp3s in the car without buying an expensive (and clunky) cd-based unit or having a laptop sitting on my passenger seat. I'm very happy with my solution (and the help I've received on this forum). Oh and my kids are enthralled to be able to watch Curious George in the car.
I never ask for handouts and try not to bore my friends with the technical aspects of carpcs (I usually fail).
I'm into computers, FPS gaming, sailing, pool, music, and my kids.
Everything is in the car and working.
I painted the cilpboard mount and it looks good.
Shutdown/Startup is working excellent!
