    And by the way, I've owned both 7-series BMW's and Cadillacs...to each his own. And the definition of a piker is:
    pik·er
    (plural pik·ers)
    n (informal)
    1. stingy person: somebody who is stingy with money
    2. petty person: somebody who does things in a small-minded or petty way
    3. cautious gambler: somebody who gambles cautiously with little money
    I'm with you on that, ChaCha. My dad drove nothing but Cadillacs for 30+ years (and mobile homes) so I grew up with them. I drive my Eldorado 20x more than my Mercedes and 10x more than my Mustang. Its just an all around everything car, not specialized, not pretentious, just right for any occasion.

    And yes, if I ever decide to come out of retirement I'm going straight to the dealership that day and get an XLR. to you Piker!

    Thanks Cha Cha, thanks Gizmo,

    you're so cool in my book. no need to hate the hater though. Without them this world would be pretty bland. I welcome the opportunity for differences. it makes me stronger (or knocks me on my ***). Either way, it keeps me on my toes.

    As for your dad driving cadillacs for 30+ years Gizmo, i guess the impact and influence is what drives us (no pun intended). I too was brought up around italians whom use to drive nothing but cadillacs - such as the eldorado with the ragtop and the pin stripes - kewl!!!! it's part history which attracted me to this legacy of a car.

    hey, here's my latest skin on the front end application of RoadRunner....



    do any of you have pics of your projects? i'd like to see them....

    thanks Fry,

    i noticed you too are using RoadRunner. I'm very happy using it and the fact that it's so well supported. I'm looking to add a second monitor to my car right above the console light. I found a usb video card?!?! you hear right USB video card. This will allow me to add a second monitor so that it can be touch screen and i can throw 2 seperate windows. I look forward to it.


    Nice work on your project.

    Wow man - thanks for the comments -
    Actually, I love your idea with the USB ports and their locations - I'm not a big fan of my hub and I know I have to relocate it some day - but just by looking at the specs on your mobo, I was like "damn" - LOL - Not even my home PC's that fast! LOL

    Just my front one for now - my daughter's only 7 months - her car seat still faces the rear windows - LOL - It's true though, there's always something else to add or modify or something to tweak

    your daughter's gonna be very happy....

    I realized now when i have people in my car, they are more entertained by what's playing on the computer than what is going on outside. Traffic jams, etc are no longer an issue - LOL

    PS: i found a utility called DVDShrink which allows you to backup the DVD on a hard drive. Once on the hard drive you rename the extension from *. VOB to *.MPG and you can open the file in Windows media player. So conveniently, you can have all your DVD's on hard drive to play on the fly.
