    Count me in for the meet. 22nd May sounds OK. Have to check with my boss I love BBQ's but in all honesty, it would probably be easier to simply buy some take away after the meet. I'm a bit lazy to try get everything organsied for a BBQ.

    My CarPC is all in and running. I don;t there is such a thing as a car PC that is 'finished'.

    Can someone give some more detail on the exact location? as i'm from the other side of Melbourne and don't know Box Hill too well. Maybe some GPS co-ordinates.

    Cheers,

    Could try Surrey Dive in Surrey Hills/Box Hill, but parking might be limited on a sunday, but there are bbq's, or over the other side of the same ovals there are other car arks, or better still, the carparks for the ovals at deakin in Burwood, heaps of room there (and red rooster 2 seconds away (oh yeah, and its 1 minute from my house :P))

    Anyway, i hope to make this meet, need ideas on what to do in my car, the laptop on the passenger seat is starting to get a bit annoying!

    what area u from? u might be able to get a lift with someone?
    djmickyg: Im around lilydale area. Eastern Suburbs. Just fibreglassing the dash surround for my VR now to fit the screen in and sanding all the interior dash bits so they are smooth and get them sprayed up. Hated the Holden ruff glovebox/dash look.

    Got all my pc together now with my new wireless PCI card and its all running sweet as outside the car. I got all my wiring done just really need to chuck the box and screen in and its done.

    I've had it hooked up in there running off 240v just to see how it all looked. Ended up spending half the night in there watching movies and listerning to music.

    Specs of machine are:

    Pentium 3 733
    Asus mini atx motherboard
    120gig WD hard drive
    IBM slimline DVD/CD
    MSI wireless PCI Card 802.11g 54Mbps
    M1-ATX power supply
    Custom box
    6.8" LCD screen
    4 Port usb hub in glovebox
    Wireless RF mini keyboard
    Wireless Logitech mouse
    Creative Infra Remote

    Also got some VX door trims that i need to get modified to fit my VR. I'm hoping they can be hacked to fit.

    Looking forward to having a LAN meet up with you guys when its all together.
