Humidor PC (HTPC)

Featured in The New York Times



The Home Theater PC:

I built this for my theater system -all controlled via a wireless mouse and keyboard. Hitting any key on the keyboard turns it on, and an icon in the quick launch ejects the DVD/CD. Video is shared 64MB RAM - broadly equivalent to a TNT2 Ultra (speed wise).

Now I can watch SVCD, VCD, DVD, AVI, streaming video (connected to my LAN), Xvid, MOV, MP3 music, etc. Surf the web from the couch, -do anything a Windows XP machine can do.
