Anyway, for the past two years, he's been buying a piece here and a piece there for his newest machine. Put it this way, the machine he built in 2000 was able to keep up with the advances in technology until 2006. He's got a good handle on that stuff.
He finally got the last few items from eBay and finished his newest machine a few days ago. (the parts were ordered before I lost my job). It's pretty.
Unfortunately, the camera hasn't cooperated in giving me clear pictures. I'm showing the blurry ones, because I just think it's so gosh darn cool-I want a new laptop that does the same thing!
The red lights? That was a complete fluke. He fired up the new motherboard and was surprised to find it had lighting underneath it. Kismet?
Here's what it looks like when you use the flash. Yes, the case is clear.
I think it looks better in the dark.
Now I've got the oldest machine in the house. Guess it's a good thing I don't need a faster machine to blog. Besides, I'm angling for a Crackberry or some other web capable phone once I'm in the land of the employed again...
