Computer cooking show - Bye-bye PS3

I just put this over on google+.

So, I have to dump the ps3 as a video player, since they are walking down the dark path, and those guys know no limits! I'm soon going to get this barebones mini computer, and I have to put in the pieces, and boot up xbmc (a linux player). So I thought wouldn't it be great to do a live hangout, just like the 50's cooking shows. Who knows what will go wrong! I'm worried about boring stretches, like fumbling with the packaging, but if there are enough people, they can tell their computer horror stories. I'm really hanging on the edge for this, and wonder whether I should just do an edited youtube video.

I say go with YouTube. The hardest and slowest part will be loading Linux. I'm pretty sure the shape ball in preschool is more challenging than dropping RAM and a Hard drive into a barebones box. the processor, sound, and video are all on board. Plus a video will be more memorable when you get frustrated and smash it to tiny pieces with a hammer...

Thanks, I've nearly done that with the towers when memory and motherboards have collided.

FIRST DISASTER. It needs tiny little ddr3 simms. I bought big ugly ones.

Oh no... did it trigger the tsunami warning?

It's all part of the learning curve. Hopefully its only a short drive to the computer store...
