A car stereo that can kill you? Cool

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?
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.
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.
