    Linux thin-client HTPC?

    Hi, I was just wondering if it is possible to install something like freevo on one of these minimal linux-thin clients. They are very attractive because they are so small, and have no moving parts/noise and are inexpensive. I would imagine that USB ports are good enough for extending storage...

    Worm.SomeFool.P

    I'm guessing its not possible to prevent someone from spoofing the sender? Would the best way to deal with this be to ignore it?

    Worm.SomeFool.P

    Does this mean that the home machine has been infected with a virus or does a zombie machine have the username and password to the AOL account, or is someone just spoofing the return address. If you look at the headers, its recieved from plus.cz. I'm not sure if I'm reading the headers correctly.

    Dell’s UltraSharp 2005FPW widescreen 20-inch LCD monitor.

    Anyone know how big the PIP box is, and the resolution that it has. Someone mentioned playing their Xbox on the PIP box as being a better alternative, and that sounds like a good idea given that its not incredibly small.
