I need to register too. Anyone want to set up a community account so you give out the username and password and we can all look without joining?

Same = /
after some searching, here's the thread we can view:
if it's really that cool, I'll host pics for a month or two if someone emails them.
Hey, I was able to see it somehow. The idea bugs me a bit, but it's really cool anyways! I like how he has a wireless lan in his car, lol

This is something that I have been thinking about doing for a few months now. The one concern I have is cooling. It gets awful hot in the trunk of a car and ac wont help it back there. The only reason I want to do this is so I can have all my mp3's in my car. I guess the better solution in my case is like a 40gig or so mp3 player hooked up to my factory radio through a cassette adapter.

That is sweet. Not a bad idea either. And instead of putting it in a trunk, if your Seats in your car are high enough, you could get a desktop case and slide it under the driver seat or something.
cars get so hot on sunny days, i dont see how you could put that in the trunk and it still survive. i was watching the news the other day and they did this test to see how quickly a car will heat up to warn about leaving babies in the car, etc. It was around 75-80(F) outside and they tested in a black car out in the sun. within 15-20 minutes the temp monitor in the front seat reached 115 degrees. i think the trunk would be much worse than that!

Yea, i saw that too. Of course you could always throw another battery or something in your trunk and use it to power one of those small personal AC things or something to keep it from heating up too bad. just use the personal AC to blow some cool air into the case or whatever.
Id imagine there is some way to cool it down :)

You could undervolt and underclock it.
Here's one of someone I know.
