Thanks Bill,

Which do you think would be easier (in terms of getting it done and
making at least some profit) the VLC || Mytv VODs or setting up
Asterisk/wireless VOIP as a landline replacement option for caravan park
permanent residents.  

I always get lots of ideas of projects and I start on them then the
phone rings and I have to run out and fix some Windows PCs. 

Then I get an idea for another project and start on that one without
finishing the first. I really need to get a solid project for 2006 so I
can show that I have at least finished something.

Maybe there is someone that can mentor me to keep me or track or someone
also interested in working on such projects?
