    it's funny

    so many people inquiring about the matrix screensaver.

    when this project was just a thought in my mind - all i could see is the (matrix) displaying beautifully against the entire console....and the day i would be finished and the project a realization...

    i'm glad so many people had my same reaction....

    hah! thanks - i luv this car. BTW, i noticed the Cadi Emblem - u drive a cadi?

    It took me about two months with the wife and kids and moments of doubting myself - this created a big gap between start and completion....

    uhm - case? there is no case! i stuffed everything behind the monitor! it's all well mounted but it all sits stuffed in behind the monitor. The hard drive i mounted in a small area over the glove compartment (used springs and a long IDE cable and power supply).

    So, you're running all of that off of a M2-ATX PSU?

    Dang... I was worried about that PSU having enough power to fuel my system, and mine is a P4 Mobile 2.4 Ghz, less RAM, smaller HDD, and less accessories.

    Good news for me, I guess

    i'm having a problem with Service Pack 2 for XP. I think it's the motherboard bios which i may need to update if that's the problem. If i run WinXP w/o SP2 it's ok.

    Yeah, i'm driving a Cadi. It's a Catera, the predecessor to the CTS. Looking at your install has made me decide on my next car.

    Nice car, nice install.

    But, you really should optimize the OS. No need to log in, you can get rid of that. Also, VISTA may not be the best way to go. Stick with XP and a great FE (I see you mentioned CF< good choice)

    Have you ever run a power calculator on your system, or did you just intall everything and hope for the best?
