PCDB Flashback - BlueSmurf's Car PCs and The Imperator (15 Comments) (link)

I was reminded recently of the PCDB, a once-popular part of the site that we had to mothball back in 2009. I had a go at putting it up on a test server on the weekend and, well, it's a pile of ancient code that I pretty much have no hope of modernising and securing. But all is not lost, as I still have the images and info, so I thought I might highlight some entries on the news page occasionally.

Where better to start than with the most popular and most highly-voted entry, BlueSmurf's GTRPC:




This boasted a Duron 600 overclocked to 910MHz, with 256MB of RAM on an Abit KT7A-RAID, with a mighty ASUS v7100TV GeForce2 MX video card. Sadly the GTRPC was stolen from BlueSmurf's home in April 2002. He followed that project up with Project Jellybean, commissioned by VIA for Computex in 2003:



Then finally, Project Evolution to celebrate 10 years of Mini-ITX:




More info on those projects in this thread. Of course, no mention of BlueSmurf can happen without highlighting his The Imperator project:
