  1. i found an american company that meke this kinda thing... http://www.nobu-usa.com/products.html they call it a control solution... they give "target price" of 23,000 dollars. :)
  2. i tested it out last night and it works pretty much as suspected. it finds the wireless router, uses a microsoft program to find the music on the PC, then you just play it with the remote control. upside: it's wirelss downside: it's not as pretty, or configurable as the touchscreens.
  3. the best defrag there is... 3 words: backup - format - reinstal :)
  4. i'll be testing the pinnacle soundbridge tonight.... i'll keep you posted ;)
  5. the sound is the easy part- independantly powered logitech speakers in the room, hooked up to the sound card or splitter. with these touchscreens i could control some kind of software which governs which speakers are turned on at any one time. just been on the phone with carcomputer.co.uk they have 3 in clearance stock for 150 pounds, including shipping and everything it would set me back 560 quid to get them to holland... now i just need to convince my girlfriend that we need them
  6. SWEET! those lilliput touch screes are well nice! and 109 euros each.... affordable. i'm speaking with the manufcturer by email to help find the best units. The plan is to have one main PC, with these touchscreens as an interface.
  7. nice ideas, thanks :) recently i've been looking at these http://www.rokulabs.com/products/soundbridge/ ...install one in each room with a set of speakers and stream the music through wifi... high tech and user friendly ;) A friend of mine works for pinnacle sys who brand the eu version of the soundbridge... i'm hoping to get my hands on one on loan for this weekend, we'll see how it goes :D cheers C&H
  8. hello! it's been ages since i posted on this site, been so busy with work lately, anyway... i've come across a pretty tricky problem in my new house and i know there are some very technical people here so i thought i'd rack you brains :) i'm installing a system where i can play music in 4 different rooms from a central PC/server. i'm putting speakers in each of the rooms and will run the cable down to the sound card on the PC/server. i want to install 2 interfaces, one upstairs, one downstairs... with me so far? the problems i'm having are, a) what type of interface to use, and ;) how to control the sound card to allow me to turn different rooms on and off through the 2 interfaces. preferably the interfaces should be touch screen so they can be cleanly installed in the rooms without keyboards and mice. any suggestions of interfaces, sound cards, hints and tips etc.... cheers!

  10. but.... i don't have a favourite plant? EDIT: is beer a plant?
  11. for the drag and drop aspect i was thinking if you open the file explorer on the phone you could drag music, photos, etc straight from "my documents" on the pc to explorer on the phone and visa versa... beats doing it through active sync, and would also make the phone more like an extra drive in the pc, which would be a bonus for me certainly... yes, the phone already has msn and media player, but having the tinny speaker blaring out when you are at the pc would be pointless or connecting to gps to use your phones MSN would be pricey... maybe if you reduced the quality of the programs that are being displayed on the phone (much the way VNC server can reduce the quality of a remote desktop to save bandwidth) this would make it viable to move a messenger window or whatever from monitor to phone fluidly? i really like this app so far... it certainly grabbed my interest, i'm a bit of a freak for multiple monitors and the opportunity to add just one more is too good to pass up :) well done, nice app, hope this helped :D
  12. Ted came home from the club late one Friday evening stinking drunk, as he often did, and crept into bed beside his wife who was already asleep. He gave a peck on the cheek and fell asleep. When he awoke he found a strange man standing at the end of his bed wearing a long flowing white robe. "Who the hell are you?" Demanded Ted, "and what are you doing in my bedroom?". The mysterious Man answered "This isn't your bedroom and I'm St Peter". Ted was stunned "You mean I'm dead!!! That can't be, I have so much To live for, I haven't said goodbye to my family.... you've got to send me back straight away". St Peter replied "Yes you can be reincarnated but there is a catch. We can only send you back as a dog or a hen." Ted was devasted, but knowing there was a farm not far from his house, he asked to be sent back as a hen. A flash of light later he was covered in feathers and clucking around pecking the ground. "This ain't so bad" he thought until he felt this strange feeling welling up inside him. The farmyard rooster strolled over and said "So you're the new hen, how are you enjoying your first day here?" "It's not so bad" replies Ted, "but I have this strange feeling inside like I'm about to explode". "You're ovulating" explained the rooster, "don't tell me you've never laid an egg before". "Never" replies Ted "Well just relax and let it happen" And so he did and after a few uncomfortable seconds later, an egg pops out from under his tail. An immense feeling of relief swept over him and his emotions got the better of him as he experienced motherhood for the first time. When he laid his second egg, the feeling of happiness was overwhelming and he knew that being reincarnated as a hen was the best thing that ever happened to him... ever!!! The joy kept coming and as he was just about to lay his third egg he felt an enormous smack on the back of his head and heard his wife shouting "Ted, wake up you drunken bas*ard, you're sh*ting the bed"
  13. maybe drag and drop? :) also, if you could actually move a window like media player or msn mesenger onto your phone screen, it could save a little bit of space on your monitor(s)
