    Nice install. I commented on that post with a little bit about my linux carpc in progress. They wanted me to post some links. On slashdot? I think not.

    Well it made it...got a little unresponsive there for a while.

    Had to write a shell script to restart apache when the load got to high. That seems to have prevented to server from crashing and burning

    Looks nice, but the screen is too low in my opinion.

    One thing that's killing me is getting bluez working with my sprint phone. May I ask the order of your operation. I can scan and find the phone, but the second I try and do anything with the link, it disconnects.
