Not only that, but custom engine control computers are making performance tweaking a great place for an experienced computer professional. A friend of mine built a truck with such a controller and asked me to help him install and use the software for configuring the system. It is amazing how tweak-able everything is. It feels like somehow building an RPG character using a network monitoring suite, which is a little bizarre, but could be interesting.

I normally try to be constructive, but WTF is up with the giant font for the headlines? I may be old enough to remember when Slashdot was a newborn, but I'm not so old I can't see a more reasonably-sized font. The old style with a smaller contrasting font on a colored bar would make scanning the page for items of interest much more enjoyable.
