    I have got no web page skills. But if someone could give me a poke in the right direction, I would be able to write all about my experience in producing my carputer.
    Dealing with various distributers/overcoming software/hardware hicups etc.

    Really I just wanted my name on this thread, so that I can hopefully find someone with a finished install, close to Blackpool/Preston, that I could come and take a look at with a view to stealing...I mean admiring their handywork.
    It all looks a bit complicated to me

    1st attempt went OK, but was too slow. Next version is all onboard, will use push buttons on the com ports, got a 200MHz 6x86, 128MB RAM, Winamp. Sproggy 2.6 kit in progress. 12GB Laptop HDD. No case yet!

    I`m in the UK, and i`m good at flash and photoshop, but i`m really busy doing some vb/flash software for the car at the moment. I`m willing to offer any help if anyone needs it though. My 3rd install is also on the verge of completion, i`ve got everything running in the house, I just need to get everything in the car.

    I'm sort of in the UK, and come the summer I should be back home and have the mini again

    A couple of suggestions, a good links page, www.mp3car.com/usersites/links started of looking good but hasn't gone anywhere in ages. Definately a list of suppilers and not just the common ones like Maplin, but ones where you can find the weird and wonderful bits (like frigging connectors).

    A good set of referance articals would be good, not the standard quick brush over most mp3 car sites have. For example 90% of the newbie articals here could be covered in a set of 10 or so referance articals.

    List of good examples of mp3cars, and some indication of the quality / usefullness of the content. Alot of the single page sites you find when doing searchs arn't very usefull.

    I should be able to help out, if required, usual skills here, html, java, ability to draw circuits / diagrams, and invent new words that are nothing like the word I want
    And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows?
    www.mp3mini.co.uk (Does what it says on the URL) www.openclassic.co.uk (The new car, with zero rust!) www.rob-web.co.uk (My other site)
    Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)
