I’ve spent most of today in front of the computer. It was my job today to look up ideas for wedding favors for November. I found a few interesting things (cd cases, nifty wine glasses, etc) and a few cool things I’m thinking about getting for my groomsmen. I’ll probably get something a little different for everyone since I’m sure Chip wouldn’t like a cigar case that I would get for Nagle and Jason wouldn’t like a techy-screwdriver-pocketknife geek toy that I would get for Chris. You can all rest assured that you’ll all get some cool little trinket.
During my web surfing I of course made my way around to my daily reads in order to catch up. While reading HardOCP I noticed perhaps the coolest case mod I’ve ever seem. Here is a link to the forum thread. He updated the post daily to show everyone his progress so the 20+ pages are worth a read for the pictures if nothing else. Here is the finished project (about half way down).
This got me interested in the project I was talking to chip about before I left. I was dreaming up a really cool WWII inspired case. I’d like it army-green with bullet holes instead of a case window, red LEDs and bomber/pinup-girl nose art on the side. Following a link or two I came across this guy who specializes in cartoons of that variety. They’re pretty cool. What’s cooler is the gallery section of his website… which in turn inspired me to do something with Docholoday.com… which I will do as soon as I have my computer back.
So, now I’m inspired with two new projects… which I won’t really have time to do with a new job and without an apartment to work on them in… but I’ll keep the ideas on the back burner until September or so. Anyway, just thought I’d share.
I fail to see why bullet holes is in quotes. It suggests a lack of real bullet holes, instead it implies some sort of fake bullet hole replacement. That’s not right at all…
You are correct sir. I would indeed want authentic bullet holes. In fact, here in TX, it would probably be easy to create those… they like to shoot things here. I put it in quotes in case average-joe-reader was confused as to what a case window actually was or might be having a hard time invisioning what the holes might look like in comparison to a normal case window.
if you want to be really authentic just blow the fucker up and have a smoldering pile of plastic and auminum sitting next to your computer desk. or even better nothing says world war II then some authentic jewish blood…i’ll sned you some of mine. Only 1/4 pure but i’m sure noone will ask any questions. for anyone who thought that was totally inappropriate, you are correct. But i’ve made quite a job out of offensive humor in the past few weeks and i thought it a shame not to spread it around a bit. and on a totally different note: Matt, i got an nvidia fx5900 so ha ha.
damn you sir! damn you and your 5900!!! I think I might be getting one eventually anyway, after they drop in price that is. Enjoy it, it’s a sweet ass card.
