    . . . no, I didn't know that, and what you said sure gets my attention. What's the reason it's not recommended?

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    Within the context (of coarse!) - meaning ignition switch controlled only.

    Yes, with built in wifi, bluetooth, and a 1.8" hard drive. Plus some other gubbins. But it means that you can use bluetooth GPS and OBDII dongles with zero hassle, which can only make obdgpslogger easier. Next up, replacing the drive with a 1.8" SSD...

    I ... must ... have one.

    And now, for a case.

    Seems appropriate to put all this gear in a case. So i picked up a broken amp on ebay for $20. I should be able to fit the sheeva, fusion brain, wifi and bt in this case with hopefully some relays and other sensors. I want to also utilize the amp's existing connector jacks.

    fun with epoxy

    Mounted some standoffs using epoxy. It seems pretty sturdy, but I'm going to let it dry over 24hrs. Anyone had any experience with this? With the stuff in the amp, everything will be upside down most of the time. Should I be worried?

    So your replacing a pc with a much smaller solution....that is now the size of a pc

    I did the same thing only reversed the standoffs so that all you need is a bolt. Either way use something like JB Weld and they wont come off without a hammer.

    Oh, this doesn't replace the carpc. this is just an extra, always-on box that will work with the main carpc. Ultimately, I want to replace both with a combined solution, possibly utilizing a gumstix solution like this. Maybe intel will come out with an pico-itx atom that is only 1-5watts and has BT, wifi, and digital i/o.
