    Good news for Centrafuse builders - if your 30 day trial runs out, just like me, just when your about to begin testing in your car... you can email support and get a 10 day extension. Yay

    Damn I lost the power/vga/touch cable for the Lilliput EBY-701. If anyone knows where I can get a replacement cable, let me know!

    thanks pepsi.

    Luckily (my gf) found the cable. Crikey I thought I was screwed.

    This weekend:

    1) Wiring of POWER-ON-LINE (Lan) - as described above, link a relay to the network cable turn on.

    2) I've found cleaner mounts for the relays. Plugins with wires, get them at a decent electrics store. Saves wiring directly to relay which is a bit messay. Will get these for the 2x relays in the box.

    3) General wiring of car. Moved USB HUB to dashboard, as the cable I got goes that way, and most of the stuff is in the dash anyway - touchscreenUSB/GPS/Radio/Bluetooth/etc

    4) The only large purchase left now is Centrafuse. Oh, that and the $600 yearly car registration due this month. F$#^!!!!!

    Final Pics of the Box/Install - will post these this weekend, the box is looking fairly nice, mostly wired, looking good.

    Strangely my biggest challenge this week is getting an extra 10 days trial from centrafuse. The bummer being, you give them your code from your trial, and they give you a key to extend. But the code you give them changes on reboot, and since I'm in Australia, I can't let my EEEPC reboot for over 24 hours plus. Not hard normally, but with a couple of troublesome ferrets in the house it might get interesting :P Most nights, somehow they manage to pull out the AC adapter ehh little ....somethings. Will store the EEEPC more safely tonight, and see how it goes.

    Some more work on the box tonight.

    As you can see, two relays. One to turn on the general power, and the other to switch on the notebook using the network card.

    Note: The last picture shows the outside of the box. It is square, just the angle I took the photo at makes it look a bit ajar

    Thanks

    To be clear - I'm not using an AC Adapter, I'm using a 12v Car Adapter for EEEPC. You can get off Ebay cheap. It does not connect in any way to the WOL loopback.

    Heres how it goes: first relay switches on the main power in the box. This gives power to the fans, the 12v EEEPC car adapter, and power to the relay which controls the WOL Loopback.

    When the relay for the loopback gets power, it just connects the WOL wires which turn on the EEEPC.

    Feel free to ask any more questions. I can post a diagram if you like - I actually had to ask my old man how to wire the relays lol

    that looks clean! now how big is that case compared to a cd? what did you do to the eee pc itself to WOL? did you have to hack it in any way?
