I've used it a couple of times, but not for ages. It was all rather painless but it just gives me a dirty feeling using it, it's obvioulsy a loss leader for the merchants and seems to be just another way of grabbing customer data.
I got my first bit of junkmail this monring to an e-mail address registered only with Groupon so the app has just got binned and unsubscribed from the emails that I didnt read any more anyway.
Re: I went down the DIY route
Me too, but running ESXi with a SME server install and couple of other linuxy server to play with and the cpu utilisation is negligable. Infact I was so impressed for what turned out to be a £130 server that I got another one.
Re: Looks nice
That's what I did, sort off.
I got some fag packet sized D-class amps (Sure electronics, 15w) from fleabay for 35 quid and my old Tannoy 607 and 603 speakers and some Linn ceiling speakers for the bathroom. These and some airports, either N's or G's (turned the wireless off on the G's) and Bobs your aunty.
They sound great to me and plenty loud enough which is probably all that most people would want/need. Indeed, when I needed some more amps I had to order another 6 for other people.
Not as cool as the ones in article but massive geek satisfaction value.
