    i built my first player because i thought it would be cheaper than a cd changer.... It was, but it was a 486 with no display running mpxplay.

    Now building my third system (touchscreen overlay _still_ hasn`t been posted, plz. hurry up shonuff), i've found out there is no point i can say "finished!", and it is also not aa much of a cheap hobby as i thought it was.

    i saw an article somewhere 3+ years ago about a guy that converted his laptop to run in his car for his stereo. i was hooked. a good friend is a computer tech and taught me a whole bunch about computers so i figured i would build this thing. i surfed right to here one day and the rest is history! i never guessed that car mp3 playback would come so fast but i was kinda dogging my install. didnt start til this summer.

    #1 reason-i always need something to do--like a good challenge

    #2 reason-since i got road runner about 3 years ago i have been downloading the whole internet!!!

    #3 reason-i have over 60 mp3 cd's of full albums-not to mention the singles

    #4 reason-i'm lucky enough to be able to build all this stuff

    #5 reason-'CUZ!!!
