Journal: A car stereo that can kill you? Cool

Journal by frieked

Submitted this story, it got rejected:
Troy Irving's 18-year-old Dodge Caravan has a hell of a sound system: 72 amplifiers--you got it, 72--and 36 big 16-volt batteries to put out the 130,000 watts of power needed to rumble his nine 15-inch subwoofers. To put that into perspective, the most powerful production-car audio I know of is the $230,000+ 2003 Aston Martin Vanquish's 1,200-watt system. Irving carries $80,000 worth of audio alone, in a vehicle that is worth, admittedly, slightly less than the Maybach. Must be fun to ride down Main Street with the windows rolled down, right?

Journal: Neoware ThinPC

Journal by frieked

Demoing Neoware ThinPC this week and EzRemote manager portal edition ...and I must say they are pretty nifty. Meant to take an old slow old computer which is not really useful anymore and turn it into a thin client. It's biggest downfall I think is the price...at $100 per license it's a bit pricey. Less expensive than buying a new computer though so maybe it's worth it if it'll squeeze a few more years out of those old win 95 machines.

Journal: FP!

Journal by frieked

So I bought myself a slashdot subscription so I figured I may as well get the most out of slashdot now by writing in my journal. Not quite sure what I'll write about but I'm sure I'll think up stuff as I go along. Perhaps keep a log of stuff I do at work.

MS-DOS must die!
