    i searched google and "mod" stores for extra "floppy" or 3.5 racks.. becuz 2 isnt enough... i need another one becuz the pc im building is occupied with a small fan controller and a floppy drive and i want a media card reader/writer but have no space so i decided to put it an the side of the case and on top trying to neatly put some fighter pilot switched for uv and cathodes stuff...

    Buy a cheap case and butcher it.

    When I say cheap, I mean £15 ebuyer jobby. (also good for cheap-ass emergency psus)

    Maybe you remember when in your childhood you used to play with Meccano... Maybe you could do something with that old stuff.

    I remember meccano... sliced the end of my finger off with a peice :waah: and still have the scar.
    But, yeah, meccano is always good for bodging things up in your computer, and it looks good too :rock:

    well, mine wasn't the real thing either. My stuff is called Constructor if I'm not mistaken. Was a cheap Meccano rip-off about 10 years ago :)

    here in the states, it was Erector Set, probably the exact same thing as meccano.
