    Guys,

    It was a pleasure to have met all of you. I want to thank you all for welcoming a noob such as myself. Talking with each of you, though very brief, was a great experience. Being in a meet such as this past weekend's, showed me the difference between individuals such as yourselves and those in the performance industry. All of you were friendly, knowledgeable, insightful, creative, and most of all very down to earth. It's a real "breath of fresh air" to be around people that share knowledge and experience not for their ego's sake, but for the hobby's sake. In the car performance industry it's totally opposite, where people like to proclaim with an "I did this" or "I beat that" mentality. I'm glad to have met you all and by the next meet I will most definitely have a carpc up and running.

    - john1701, I like your setup, it is very inspiring to see a setup such as yours since it's purpose is to serve both business and entertainment aspects of life. I really liked your license plate ...are you a Trekkie as well? Once I put a carpc together, I want to create an LCARS skin to mimic the operations of that of a Federation Console...I'll post it up once I create it.

    - john05srt4, I was amazed by your use of "all-ready-owned-ready-for-a-new-purpose-pc-setup". The use of the relay with the amplifier is a great I idea. I hope and pray that you stop getting pestered by the law for your tints.

    - Hivoltage23k, the fiberglass casing that you used for your pc was very nice, it's a nicer alternative to the metal casing I thought of using, plus it makes for a nice display case for show. I hope things get up and running smoothly at your first attempt to "fix" the problems you were having.

    - Pistolen08, your setup was very creative. The volume control knob on your door panel was a cool idea, and the button you put in place of your seat warmer was done very cleanly (I thought it was a stock button! I would have thought so too, had you not pointed it out). Have thought of how you're going to protect the volume control knob from the rain yet?

    - Zharvek, man, what can I say, the compact flash setup for the OS to boost faster was a real eye-opener for me, I definitely want to go that route for my setup. I only wish that I could put my pc in the trunk like you did, but my car has bad water retention in the hatch area, thereby preventing me to do so. Great setup.

    - Khris with the 240sx, I promise I'll let you drive my car like I said I would. I got your number so expect my call. PM me your email if you read this before I call you.

    - Art with the Galant, damn is your car clean! I hope that you put a carpc in soon, so that you can complete the look of your car with cool functionality.

    Guys, thanks again for sharing all the knowledge, experience, and creativity as well as instilling inspiration, confidence, and insight into a noob such as myself. I hope to see you all again soon at the next meet. Hopefully more people show up next time, it's a shame for them to not meet up with a great group of people such as yourselves.

    Wish I could have met up with you guy's. I walked around the skycoaster but didn't see anyone I know, I drove around twice but didn't see anyone's car. Oh well, maybe next time.

    PS. I had a couple of new movies to share including 300
