Aquired

This project for the time being has been put on hold for my Triple Screen setup. The triple screens that is, I don't have the racing seat or the wheel. Or for that matter a rear display. However I do plan to get the wheel. And I have priced a butt kicker. But at this time I haven't proceeded any futher. Presently working on taxes. If all goes as planned the wheel will be aquired shortly.

A MythTV system with multiple back ends with four or more tuners each. And of course lots of hard drive space. We're leaning toward knoppmyth for ease of software configuration. From looking at card specs and reading owner comments this is the NTSC tuner of choice: WINTV-PVR 250 (as of Easter '07 J&R has a better price)

I ended up using Windows XP Media Edition with four tuner cards with room for two more. I usually don't record more than three things at the same time. So four is over kill. Oh well.

I've finally seen the light of SageTV.
I have four screens available for video game rig. Three of which are 22" wide screens. As can be seen here:
Presently just the middle and right are setup to be used with the computer.

I would imagine that I would need one or more green houses or similar growing rooms and some sort of temperature controlled hydroponic setup.

ONBOARD AIR
With a system something like this: Link
(I have a 2006 Ranger. I am planing on mounting the compressor to the frame on the right opposite the fuel tank. And a five or more gallon air tank also on the right side but behind the rear axel. For air receptacle locations I'm thinking inside the front of the bed on the right and left sides. As for "piping" it all together I am planning to use 3/8" id hose.

My sister found this. I've tried several recipes from this book (pdf). Very good. I personally didn't care for the white cake. But everything else rocks.

I tinker with Gentoo Linux. Unfortunatley for me I don't always remember the commands. I will list the ones that I find helpful here:

adding kernel features (For 2.6 kernel)
# cd /usr/src/linux
# make menuconfig
# make && make modules_install
# cp System.map /boot/System.map
# cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage
# cp .config /boot/config

nic0 ip address on local box # ifconfig eth0

I particularly like "DriveImage XML" as I roll back to a fresh install of XP every couple of weeks. If I would do a true fresh install it would take quite a long time. And MicroSoft would insinuate that something illegal was happening. to boot.

Art or the ravings of a mad man?
Classic TV shows that you must check out. Coupling is a favorite. Some episodes shined more than others. One in particular that's fantastic is called "The Women With Two Breasts" I refer to it here as Shadayim.

I don't think 'tinker' is really the right word here. I'm not programming. I am merely using Linux applications from the Gentoo distribution. I like the varity of things that it can do. And I really like the price. (Better than free as the source code is there too. And one day I might just modify the code for something that would not only benefit me but others as well.)
The idea as I see it is merely a dream. But short of the impossible there are many ways to make your car more fuel efficient.
