    Just got home myself. Was stuck below 80 the whole way, way too many police on the road on a Saturday night and the George Washington Bridge was a killer haha

    Anyway, had a great time. Nice to finally check out other CarPCs!

    Really, mp3car, thanks for doing this.


    Bugbyte, it's no problem. Troubleshooting can be fun haha

    Sorry I missed this one. Sounds like MP3Car did another outstanding job of hosting the event. KUDOs to all who participated.

    Now get those pics and videos on-line so the rest of us can see what we missed!

    Even with dozens of parts yet to be implemented, and still arriving in the mail, we packed as much as we could and headed to the AFK fest.

    At first I was very apprehensive about the esthetics of my console fabrication, but everyone understood my time constraints, and then I realized that everyone's system is in constant build state, I felt better.

    I was like a kid in a toy store....wow! I was so excited running from one car to the other, I was dehydrated, all sweaty and bouncing all over the place! My cousin told me afterwards that there were burgers and hotdogs, but I was so excited I was blind.

    I feel invigorated, and the effort put in the project, validated. We tried to take as many build pictures together, to put a workblog, that this also has grown into a website of its own, reaching back into my original carputer builds.

    Im sorry Bugbyte, but once I scan a couple of my old pictures, I will de-throne you with my 1972 mustang carputer.

    Seeing everyone' projects truly made us feel part of a community thats reaching into the future and making it happen today.

    Totally awesome. thanks everyone !

    Awesome! What the heck was in it?! A PDP-11?

    Gumball rally sounds like a great idea! Only rule is that all carputers must be running an Atari emulator with original rally software.

    Great minds, great minds!

    Edit: in case everyone thinks the iBug never works, I ran the instamapper tracking from it on the way home today and it did a pretty good job of broadcasting it's location in real time. No great feat, but even with many segments on ATT Edge, it still works pretty well.
