Thought this would be another link for [url]www.geekswithguns.com[/url] All true computer nerds keep the covers off their computers for easy access. And I need the ammo cans for the stockpile.

I knew that the Dremel tool existed for a reason besides polishing chambers! [BD] I should put one together like that... except maybe in a 5.56 can for a little more room.

Gives a whole new meaning to "loading programs".

SWEET-er!!!! Why the gender changer on the monitor? I suppose the mouse and keyboard are on a usb hub. Nice job! ByteTheBullet (-:

Holy crap, I think I really found my true home.

Very cool. If I ever build my own computer (which I swear I will whenever mine blows up) maybe I'll try something like that. Nice work!

The gender changer is needed becase the extension on the monitor had the wrong end on it. The keyboard I just got for it is usb with a ps2 on the keyboard for a mouse. Frees up a usb port.

Very sweet... makes it even more tempting to do my own! Couple questions... 1. Make and model of motherboard? 2. How did you do the hole for the fan? Hole saw or dremel? 3. Where did you find those kickass power switches?
Link Posted: 6/7/2003 8:25:26 AM EDT
Motherboard is an ECS K7VMM it has ps2 ports but I just left them covered up because it would have blocked the hinge on the back. 3" hole saw for the back hole. The switch covers came from Summit Racing but the were not cheap, $30 for the set with shipping. The ammo can came from Cheaper Than Dirt for around $7 + shipping. Any other questions feel free to ask.
