    Hey, i was wondering what you guys did to personalize your computer. I covered mine in Legos. i am going to screw all of the boards into it sometime. Have any of you painted your cases, or anything like that?

    that sounds like an awesome idea. You need to show your pictures after it is done

    Have you finished your TV/PC yet?? I'm still looking for the right case to build in for my next PC.. Was thinking of just mounting a mobo to the bottom of my desk to conserve space.. maybe a couple of power supplys and mobos with a good KVM switch. I could add more PC's without taking up any more room and could run them all at once with internet access from the router sitting on the desk.

    that would nice. i get a bunch of crappy parts from my friends, and i have always wondered what would happen if i put them on the wall and had them hooked up. Would be a cool lookin wall if nothing else.

    its going to be slow still gutting it i dont have time. also working on a 1/72 ec-135 model i am going to give to my dad on the 20th. because he is ex airforce and that is one of the planes he worked on 3/4 of his carreer.

    the hardest part is saving up to purchase the monitor.

    i completed my computer of legos, everything is legos(except the hard drive, mobo, eyc) and a piece of metal behind the mobo. the drieves are held up by LEGOs, power supply is hopefully, :confused: held up . i will send a picture of it. a firend is currently working on getting those battery powered christmas lights to hook up to the power supply, but i have no idea how that will work, i will tell you when i find out.

    okay, i had the courage to turn it oun. it still dosen't quite work, but that is because of hardware porblems. no CD drive. But the computer looks awesome. i am posting pictures on the web as we speack, so i should have the site done in a year or two. Haheha. the chirstmas lights just hook up to a floppy drive power thing. My friend took the battery pack off and stuck the two wires into the red wire and the black next to the red. it looks pretty cool, and i have so many of those. i mismeasured the dimesnions and the space is cramped, but hey it is made of legos.
