    Thanks! :lol: Razer121 was found dead at my house. It seems he tripped over a pile of incomplete computers, and they crushed him.
    -I'm glad you like the project MCLEKael, but this is the last update.
    I made a lot of changes, so it seemed fair to do final-final pics.

    -It only went through bypass surgery ONCE. I had to drill a bunch of holes. While I had everything out I added an off switch to the CCFLs. I mean, Holy cow! They are bright!

    -First, the blurry dark stuff.

    -Then a close-up.

    -I put together this corner cap for the power switch area.

    -I ran out of comments, so... Mooo!

    -MoooooooooooOOO!

    -I managed to get the tubes behind the optical cleaned up and mounted in the bottom.

    -And one last one. Thanks for tuning in.

    ROFL!

    Either Bill has a really sick sense of humor, or he's getting back at you for the insane design you made him build.
    I think a little of both...

    Looks like you are putting on the final touches!

    -I milled a few spacers and stuff that was missing. -Oh, and Modders-Inc. Say hello to Bananaman!:mrgreen:

    -I widened the hole in the 2nd layer for the power switch, and made myself a ring in the process.

    -I figured out if you polish the rough mill cuts, they match the laser cuts pretty close.

    -I added some glue to the spacers. This was a problem area because of only one screw hole. -Who is the idiot that designed this thing? :roll:

    -While I was on a roll, I got a crazy idea in my head. It was so crazy, I took this pic in anticipation of disaster. -Note the block of wood wedged in for support.

    -Somehow, I managed to pull it off. Some of the holes are a little oblong...

    -The green peeking through the paint looks really cool.
    I'll let the thread sleep until the new batch of plexi ships.

    :lol: My first Thanksgiving present.
    @Bod - I think his shipping it disassembled was the attempt at revenge. I have no clue how he got in there to disconnect the CCFLs. Thank God I have various surgical tools to do the wiring.

    -Don't you hate that. The instructions are in Japanese! I may never get this back together.
    ROFL!

    I got some stuff in late last night.
    First, here was box one:

    -Whee! Ion Motherboard!

    -Oops! Scratch that. It's spare parts and install discs.

    -Under that was the base with the power brick.

    -Box two. This kills me. Bill packed the sh*******t out of this stuff. This is a full atx case box.

    -Box two unpacked. There was a handy styrofoam carry tray in the box too.

    -Inside box three, wrapped in 5 layers of bubble wrap, was another box.

    -Inside that box was more bubble wrap. At this point I thought he had sent me an empty box to unwrap, just for a cruel laugh.

    -I think the fan guard would have arrived safely even if it had been dropped from 50,000 feet.

    -I'll figure out what to do with the three foot pile of bubble wrap in my rumpus room later. -Maybe an audio re-enactment of Pearl Harbor...

    -Don't you hate that. The instructions are in Japanese! I may never get this back together.

    -I don't think this part got enough fanfare. I essentially gave Bill a vague angle and said 'wing it !' What he ended up with is absolutely fantastic!

    -Here's how far I got on it last night. Stuff got moved and tweaked. I'm going to add all the stuff that didn't make the deadline.

    Thanks again, everyone!

    Enjoy the publicity and fame Bill, you deserve it. An excellent build, spot on execution, and amazing detail.

    Kudos cannot be heaped on enough....

    Thanks for the posts everybody!

    Man, I think it's hit every tech blog out there, including Maximum PC. I'm soo happy that I'm hosting the photos on mnpctech's server, my 3dpixel account where I normally host my photos would have an epic FAIL. I do plan to build another one for myself, an alien spaceship theme

    Today I'll be dismantling it so i can ship it to cheapskate safely
