    Amaretto, or, the 2003 Civic Si Carputer

    According to my naming convention, I have dubbed this PC Amaretto (I name all the PC's and servers after liquors or drinks, and the router/firewall is aptly name Bouncer

    Anyway, I will post pics when I get home, but here's what I have thus far:

    Biostar M7NCG-400
    Athlon 2200+ Mobile
    512MB DDR 333
    80GB Desktop HD
    DVD-Rom (pull from Gateway )
    Athenatech HTPC case w/220W PSU (will be removed for Opus 150)
    Buffalo 802.11G WiFi in PCI slot
    4 port USB2.0 card in PCI slot (both PCI's low profile)
    BU-303 USB GPS

    What I need:
    DigitalWW DWW-7VGA monitor
    Opus 150
    Someone who knows how the hell to wire this thing

    I think I am going to keep the stock HU and mount the screen below (assuming I have enough clearance from the HU dials, if not I'll have to get a cheapy HU and switch them). PC I think I am going to bolt to the rear seats since I have a hatchback, the hatch cover will keep it out of sight.

    After fighting with the board to run stable with the proc, the software building has begun

    Suggestions, flames, or feedback welcome.

    We you did say "FLAMES", and it does seem to be that the name is kinda "Flaming" if you know what I'm saying...(light in the loafers) Amaretto, is a sweet drink, you want a name that doesn't sound so....(limp wristed) How about "Beer", or even better "Whiskey", but Amaretto, sound a little too, ya know...

    Suggestions? Here's what taken:

    Bourbon
    Everclear
    Budweiser
    Scotch
    Stoli
    Patron

    It has to be something that will fit in the NetBIOS scheme, and preferably doesn't have a space. Fire at will

    Thought about Whiskey, I think Bourbon may have covered it though

    I am curious to see what comes out of this thread though

    Little update:

    No pics because I was too busy installing different front ends. I have decided I am going to tackle the software deployments before I start on anything else. Getting bootscreens loaded, and working with Frodoplayer, MediaCar, and Road Runner.

    I am impressed though, with no services tweaking on my part, the boot with network enabled and autologin is a little over 30 seconds.

    I have a 2002 Civic Si and I'm starting to work on my CarPc as well. I'm using a Dell D600 Laptop to do mine. I'm trying to find a decent screen to mount in the Si dash without keeping the stock head unit. I want it to be a VGA Touchscreen like the Xenarc and Lilliput. I also have a 5-channel amp that will run all 4 speakers and sub off of one stereo input without using splitters.

    Good luck with your project!
