    Kind of a waste of a big UNIX server, this guy should sell the E450 on ebay and buy something, much much smaller! I have a SGI Origin 2000 I could put in my car but why? I guess he has plenty of Hard Drive expansion though. Just my $.02.

    Plonker IMO, far too OTT. Stick that in your loft and get something with a bit less processing power for the car.

    Yeah but he left the wheels on it! Not good for 100lbs to be rolling around in your hatch!

    What an idiot, he rattles on about disk storage and having 20x9GB disks, well you can get a 300GB ATA drive for around £200, even a pair would be better than that pile of crap.

    My old Sun 250 just sat there gathering dust until I gave it away.

    Look like hes about to dispose the server by the look of it.

    I dont even think its working...all he did was :

    Put a server in the back of the car.
    Talk some BS about how less powerful most car PC.
    Gave some link where the parts and softwares can be found.
    Talk about how he created an ultimate mp3 machine.

    But wheres the rest of the evidence that it actually worked...atleast some screen shot or something. Sorry but I just cant give him credit just by a few pics and text...heck the machine is not even switched on, cant see any light anyway.

    This guy must be joking...trying to wind up other car PCer.

    It's obviously a joke.

    I'm ashamed of you all for falling for it.
