    2009 St Louis Area Meet: 26 Sept 2009 @ 1200PM

    ST LOUIS AREA MEET: Saturday, September 26th, 2009, 12 Noon CARONDELET PARK

    Location Details:Carondelet Park - Lake Dr and Holly Hills Rd intersection. Take I-55 South from Downtown to exit 202c: Loughborough Ave

    GPS Coordinates: 38.563049,-90.263779 For everyone else Google Map.

    I'll be at the intersection of Lake Dr and Holly Hills Rd on my lounger in the shade with my MP3Car T-Shirt draped over the back. This park was chosen to not get too far from the riverfront and in order to have a place right off a major highway (I-55 South exit 202c: Loughborough Ave). I know getting back to Illinois from I-55 is a little hazardous, but its the best I could do: Bathrooms are about 500 yards away; there's plenty of shade; its in a beautiful location; and no park rangers on site.







    About the Meet:
    For those unfamiliar with the MP3Car meets, everyone welcome, regardless of whether you have a system installed or not. It's a chance to show up and shoot the **** with car pc enthusiasts. A chance to check out one another's installs, bounce ideas off each other, you get the idea. I will be bringing a grill, and everyone generally shows up with random food related items. If you have a taste for something, grilled or otherwise, bring it along, otherwise just show up. I expect us to be there from Noon until dusk, so come when you can and leave when you have to. Meet Map Updated.

    If this goes well, I'd love to emulate the Chicago meets with scheduled monthly gatherings. This post will be updated as the thread/year progresses.

    So are you suggesting using the shade for taking a bathroom break or gay sex meetings? [/thread crap]

    Bump. Please respond if you are contemplating showing up for this. I know it was slow build-up last year and many previous attendee have moved to Texas, but I know there are still a few left in the area. I will also be heading for Chicago the next morning for the Chicago meet if anyone wants to day-trip up there with me.

    WHERE IS EVERYBODY?????????

    Don't sweat it, I've been alone in the park before. I'll have plenty of work to do to keep me occupied.

    Hey Giz, my CarPC is broken and I haven't been around here much lately. I wouldn't mind swinging by and shooting the breeze with you but I have something else going on that day. Next time maybe.

    hell if I was still up there you KNOW I'd be there

    I've modded my carPC even more from when I was up there. Dash has been re-molded, a total of 6 USB ports up front. Aluminum finish on it all. Dual core (with HT enabled) ATOM board with bluetooth 2.1, wireless N, Auzentech X-plosion w/upgraded op-amps for sound, and a 32GB Patriot SSD with a 60GB data drive. Boot time = ~10 seconds - and that's without hybernation

    Wow, you have been busy! I will keep in touch cause I want to hear how the SSD holds up after a year or so. I keep hearing the read/write on SSD is finite not unlimited so I wanna know how long it lasts in a CarPC.
