    i like it! i really like it! nice implementation of the a great idea. that is a nice looking and well stocked bar. the remy martin xo is fine choice in cognacs although i really like the remy martin 1738 a bit better.

    i have been toying with this idea of a kitchenpc but i'm curious about other applictions aside from the obvious audio, video, and web stuff. this begs the question, what will you be using your barpc for? are there any specific applications or desired features that made adding a pc the best solution?

    a bit OT but how do bars fare as far as adding value to a home?

    Looks like you've already got it done, but you may want to consider using Linux MCE. For Windows front ends more suited for what you are doing, look around on http://www.cocoontech.com/ but be careful.... you could accidentally end up with a new hobby. When you get in to Home aoutomation, you can do almost anything with a PC.... lock the doors, arm the alarm, start a movie, dim the lights, water the yard......

    thanks guys

    sedtc: I am using the barputer mainly for music, but it has internet so I have found myself looking up drink drink recipes a lot. Yeah I have stocked the bar well - mainly because I had a wedding there last July with a fulltime bartender, and I wanted him to be able to make anything. I built that bar, by the way. Woodworking is hobby of mine.
