    Got a big bunch of packages at the door today. included in them were my PSU and GPS receiver. I haven't been able to test functionality yet because
    1. My GPS receiver is not getting a satellite signal inside my house
    2. I don't want to look up the M2-ATX manual right now
    3. No time - class soon.

    Also got my new spark plugs ... cant wait to install those!

    I will upload some new pictures to the first post after class tonight.

    Changed up the Layout of the first page right now. Separated the whole first post into 4 different posts:
    1. Fabrication
    2. Hardware
    3. Software
    4. Completion

    I think it looks a lot cleaner and neater this way.

    Picked through everything and added some missing information too!
    I just got really light headed for no reason, so I'm going to take that as a Sign that I need a break from this.

    Stay Tuned

    I'm thinking that this is because not all of them are in MP3 format.

    Someone know of a mass audio file type converter?
    I use SUPER. It's free and very flexible as far as formats are concerned. It's a little CPU intensive, but it gets the job done.

    Now I'm in the process of converting ALL my songs to MP3 format with iTunes (the only program I know how to do it with).
    This is going to take forever...
    iTunes is WAAAAAAAAAAY too CPU intensive to use unless you have an iPod, in which case you should use Mediamonkey or some other replacement. iTunes is only good on a Mac, but even then, it can still suck at times...

    No problem. SUPER's GUI is the only thing that isn't open source about it, so I trust it. I use it to convert YouTube videos to put on my iPhone.
