    Well deserved guys. Just think, you can tape up the article on your window now with some "tape of the gods" and look at it ad infinitum.

    I really, really need another cup of coffee...

    I almost started looking for a burger franchise among the sponsors as i misread the logo as "McD MEN"

    Seriosly though, this is a fantastic build.. Sure, a high budget when it comes to tools and materials generally help, but it's easily turn a project into a very expensive pile of scrap metal and plastic unless you pair that with skill! Amazing!

    Thank you voigts!

    cheaps and I have talked about doing an actual "scrap pile" PC build for the next season of Mod Men. We venture into a Junk Yard to collect misc items and scrap to host our PC system.. I just have to convince the Producer to cover cheap's Airfare & Hotel....

    *COUGH*andhookers*COUGH*

    -Might be cheaper to do the Houston VS Minneapolis junk build-off. Then he's just out a camera, AND I CAN GET RID OF SOME OF THE CRAP IN MY GARAGE.:D

    @Cheaps, it's sounding like an iTunes download would be better solution.

    @The_Beast, it will be awhile, we're back logged with orders for our PC Mod Rulers, since they take 45 mins apiece to make.

    We're making Copper version for our 10 Year Anniversary and another version for bit-tech's MOTM prize choice this year. btw: Please cast your vote for the best mod for April's MOTM, HERE

    Each Ruler takes 45 minutes to make...

    The Copper rulers are covered with cutting oil before the CNC mill engraves the measurements.
