I have an idea. I have been thinking about an mp3 server for the living room, but to build a box from scratch is too expensive. I have been playing with an old toshiba that is tiny. Its only a P133, but linux installs and sound works and it plays MP3’s. So I could drop a network card in it and then control it via a website on another computer. I would have been really cool if I could drop a video encoder card in it and sever real video streams from the box but the latop might be a cheap way of doing it. The Laptops are going for about $100 on Ebay
