Finishing up the MINI Computer (get it? ... a MINI computer!)
Starting the process of getting the apps from Sister's laptop/docking station over to the newly built screamer of a MINI Desktop. And one of the first things on the desktop right after Microsoft Security Essentials and Office 2010 is ...what else.. her MINI Cooper cuckoo clock that used to be on the German MINI site but is there no longer.
Fortunately because we had a failure in the app before, I had downloaded it and stuck it on the Home server under \\public\MINI to make sure I'd kept it. I may burn it into a hard drive and stick it in a bank vault to ensure I keep it.
We were considering painting/getting vinyl racing stripes on the MINI ITX case just like MINI Sonora Internet radio (see http://www.zercustoms.com/news/MINI-rocks-sonoro-Internet-radio.html) but then decided to just put a MINI cooper logo on the front.
This is it sitting on the side desk with me rdp'ing into it getting the rest of her applications on there.
P.S. if anyone else has a relative that HAS to have their MINI Cooper cuckoo clock app on their PC and they can't find a copy of it, holler, I have it saved.
