My Amilo D is now in its 3rd year at home, and its really started to become a liability. Just over a year after the purchase, the video card went on the blink. One can barely see the screen when running on battery, so its lived most of its life "off the mains" (a PC can do that). Some months ago I tried to find a new role for it at home - as an internet server, so I purchased the appropriate PCMCIA card to surf the web at a snail's crawl, having decided to sever my jacked-up ADSL umbilical cord with the lousy landline telephone service provider.
The Amilo D's network hardware doesn't work; installed and reinstalled drivers, so I cannot link it to my PC via Cat 5 or wireless.
I'm thinking about converting the whole mess into a frisbee, with a launch in the not too distant future from my 2nd floor home office:(If it works well, I will hand the patent over to the folks at Wham-O)
