Hi Colin,

Some interesting ideas there. Having looked through the available  
docs on the state of this project they look feasible but I'm  
something of a newbie here so your milage may vary.

My own plans are to use an E3 as a music player, using a hacked  
Netgear WGT384u storage router as the server or possibly to use it as  
a stand-alone mp3 player for the car.

Interesting times ahead I suspect.

All the best.
