The current idea is to buy an eMac and mount it permanently at the DJ table. Everyone will have their own user account, and the music will all be in a global read area ... so people can import other people playlists, export their own for the group, and play music from the same pool. That way, it will be easy for anyone to train to be a DJ, and there will be lots of fall back options.Greg BJune 20, 2005
The eMac we need (big disk, wireless card for CDDB lookup) will be $1,100. The Tango Center doesn't have this kind of money. What should we do? Suggestions & ranking below. Then make a commitment.Greg BJune 20, 2005
