    Oh, he's certainly not wrong, that's for sure.

    Funny thing about the dimensions: Since I was just getting a mental picture down on "paper," I used the measurements listed in the data sheet as...

    Re: Where are all the monitor mods?

    Okay, I think I've finally come up with my idea. To go with the Archangel theme, I'm going to resin cast a wings-and-chest-armor form for the top. It will be mounted on a plexi faceplate like some...

    Re: How would you "mod" a 4 foot tall tower?

    Funny that I never really thought about it as "Dieselpunk," but I have a 4' tower I've been thinking of going the art deco and chrome route with.


    Looking forward to seeing what you do with yours.

    Haven't touched it since the first attempt. Don't want to monkey with it unmounted an risk damaging it. And, as I haven't settled on an idea for the mod...

    Poll: Re: Do you own a HTPC / Media Center PC?

    Well...can't win them all. I admit, there's a little chicken and egg there for me - on one hand, I don't use Netflix, so I haven't looked into it. On the other, I haven't looked into it much,...

    Have you tried the Moonlight plugin? I've had varying degrees of success with that and things calling for Silverlight. (Have not tried it with Netflix.)

    Re: Cracked Laptop screen.

    Yeah, as others have posted, it's really easy to make a laptop screen look like a brick was dropped on it. Too much weight on the lid, something on the keyboard, lid twisted slightly - poof.

    Poll: Re: Do you own a HTPC / Media Center PC?

    Crap...can't remember the exact spec of the processor in my HTPC media server, I think it's a dual-core Phenom. Other than that:

    4GB RAM
    3TB RAID for storage
    Linux-based operating system.

    Huh...interesting.

    I think for this one, I'd only be doing stuff around the border and keep the screen clear.

    Re: Where are all the monitor mods?

    Well, I've ordered a wall mount, so if nothing else, I can start planning the back.

    One idea that I have is this: faux stained glass.

    As mentioned, I'm trying to go with something that will go...
