    Ha, that's brilliant. :hehe:

    I'm sure he didn't kill the beaver just to stick a PC inside it, so it would have been dead anyway.

    I like the originality.

    I suggest the thread I created about this (in the "Modding" section) be removed, so as not to have 2 identical threads...
    (http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=132165)

    He (She ?) sure had a strange idea, it's surprising where you can stick a PC nowadays...

    well, it's a world's first.

    Now all we need is a badger running linux...

    If I could find a dead badger (or a lifelike replica), I'd do it.

    i think it would be more appropriate to mod a pc into a penguin if you were gonna install linux

    I think she did it just for the quote on the last image of the photo sequence.

    FYI #2 and #3, I think the modder is she.

    Pretty twisted idea, I don't know if I'd like to have a dead animal on my desk, but got to admit it's kinda funny. There's few things that could've been done better IMO. First of all the fan in the back... Really I have no clue what beaver skin and fur is like, but I guess it could have been hidden somehow, now it doesn't kinda look right.

    This is just like robocop, only different! Robobeaver - half beaver, half AMD 3200+. You criminals better watch your backs (or toes?)

    Gotta admit that's pretty funny. Who knows the lady could just be a computer/animal lover and wanted to have both? Anyone read the story of the family that stuffed their family labrador retriever and placed him next to the fireplace?

    A female modder - Not common, but certainly not unheard of.
    An extreme female modder - Well, I suppose it had to happen eventually.
    An extreme female modder accomplishing a first in the world of computer mods - I'm sure a bold statement regarding the equality of the sexes is in here somewhere.
    An extreme female modder accomplishing a first in the world of computer mods involving a macabre sense of humor; death; fiberglassing by hand; and cute little fuzzy creatures of the forrest - wow. Will you marry me Kasey McMahon?

    I think this is pretty cool. I don't see what people would be upset about. You can find stuffed dead animals in stores and hunting shops. Beaver trapping is pretty common. I doubt someone went out and killed a beaver just for the sake of a computer mod.

    I would say its disturbing as all creation if someone went out and killed an animal just for a computer mod, but like I said, I can't believe that being the case here.

    So with all that being covered: This is an awesome, unique, and really kickass mod. I mean the Supreme Commander Mod goes to one extreme (It's f'n huge!) and this goes in another direction. (Small and furry maybe?)

    So what have we learned? Never under estimate the creativity and resources of a modder. (I am suddenly reminded of seeing wooden computer monitor housings and keyboard enclosures... Maybe that's part two of this mod? ;) )

    At anyrate this was a really long way to say:
    Cool! :thumb:

    Maahhhahhaaahhaaa, great, I'm loving it :hehe:

    Just looking at the damn thing makes me laugh, awesome idea. For some reason this mod really made my day.

    Also it must have been quite hard to fit all that stuff inside it. Well at least you don't need CNC equipment with this material :D

    Hats off to Kasey for making this happen, quite macabre, but there are worse ways of using corpses of dead animals in the world, at least it has form and now function :thumb:

    There is a lot that is great about that picture - but in my mind what makes it perfect is the half full (or, is it half empty,) liquor bottle on the table. It looks like she's halfway through a long night...... :thumb:
