The is a computer-based music player for my car. I started this project, back in 2001, for three reasons:
- I got tired of driving down the road only only to find that I brought every CD with me, except the one I wanted to listen to.
- I was sick of fumbling through a whole pile of CDs.
- I wanted a way to bring all of my music with me, while leaving the CDs at home.
Instead of using a stand-alone MP3 player, I decided to put a full-blown computerized setup in the car. This allowed me to get around the storage limitations of stand-alone music players and gave me the ability to pick the features I wanted.
When I started the project, I was driving a 1976 Buick Century. That car is gone now, but the lessons learned remain. Rather than start a new project for the 1997 Pontiac Bonneville, I kept the same computer and continued to make various improvements to the old setup over time.
