    The skin is cool. It's like a DVD menu.

    What program is that you've got running MP3's now?

    I am using the latest Media Engine www.mediaengine.org, it works rather well. I also do programming in vb and c/c++ so i might get around to working on my own car software, since i do have a could suggestions and things i would like to add to media engine.

    I am about to go fix up the wires, i currently have the lilliput hooked up to the inverter, which im not sure if i want to do that cuz thats more wires id have to run under the carpet, so im hooking it up to the lighter and toggle switch, later ill make the inverter powered by the same toggle. 1 more toggle will be added for starting the pc. Ill keep ya guys posted.

    Put a relay in for the inverter. Make it start and stop with the car key. Saves you a button flip and prevents you from leaving it on and draining your battery. Takes about 15 minutes to install properly.

    Did you relocate the PC or is it still under the seat? Do you have any recent pics of the PC install?

    I am in the process of doing that, I just customized the case, used plexiglass to make it instead of the micro pc case, it was a little too tall. I think i am going to throw it into the trunk, I am going to buy an usb harddrive so i could take it with me, before i was having problems due to weather. I will have a toggle switch that turns on and off the pc and power inverter. I have some work ahead of me but today i have some time to kill so ill try to get everything done. Ill keep ya guys posted.
