Boooo! It's a scary Halloween blog...from Hell!
So where was I? The media center PC is up and running (without RAID right now)- and it's running Vista (RC1, build 5600). Vista does actually look pretty nice, although I haven't run it all that much so far. It is after all, just an operating system. People make too much about it.
Now, the part that's still a work in progress is connecting it into my media room surroundsound system, and 720p projector. I really need an DVI or HDMI switch box. For now, manually switching cables will have to do.
