    antique radio project...

    Wasn't there someone on this forum who had a homepage which described converting an antique radio or tv for use as a pc? Found it very interesting, but I can't for the life of me remember where I saw it...

    Ruining antique radios. Well, I guess there's no shortage, as long as the rare ones aren't vandalized.

    I thought that it may have been you, but I didn't see anything about it on your webpage. In any case, I've come across a console radio (sans radio- the console was actually waiting to be thrown out) that I've been working on refinishing, and the plan was to incorporate a hacked Gateway Connected Touchpad I have lying around into the piece, with the hopes of a touchscreen interface digital jukebox as a finished result. I was hoping to come across the webpage I was talking about for a little inspiration....
