Finally getting around to building my car computer. I’ve always wanted a computer in my trunk to house my MP3 collection, check my email when I’m in range of a wireless network, check traffic maps, and so on. I’ve been futzing around with this for months, off and on, accumulating little pieces of gear. I finally took the plunge this week and bought the remaining pieces, and I plan to get the first draft done for my next HAL-PC column, due mid-month. You can get a sneak peek at it here, but it’s got a long way to go.
Even in the best of times, there are plenty of day-to-day concerns besides your SQL Servers, but we can make sure you have one less.
