    I think G-gnome said earlier hes planning to do your backlit mod, Zapwizard, but taking it an extra step.

    Hehe Zap, I have seen your DVD mod and love it! I am hoping to do it with a white LED! But I also want to use the other microswitch to turn on indicator lights when a Disc is inside the drive (of course these indicators may light up a panel ;) ) Thanks for the link again!

    :D

    Yet another... replied before reading 100% of it.
    (I am guilty too :blush: )

    I will also be using some white LEDs in my next slot DVD (For my wife)
    I love the idea of have a Disk-present indicator LED.
    Great idea :thumb:

    Un-friggin-believable. I'm not a fan of acrylic cases, but my god man! I'm a HUGE old-school scifi fan and this project would fit right in with any of those old movies! The only thing you need is a Jacob's Ladder and some vacuum tubes! ;)

    id just like to say that you know you've done a good job when the forums are so laggy (went down for 30 minutes...related?)..seriously though lol, i think this is the fastest log to hit 56000 visits if not, then in a long time :)
    -very- nice case, lots of ideas that ppl can incorporate into their own mods...great job :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :clap:

    Nice to see the pics are up.

    Wow! Thats all i can say.

    I've never really been a big fan of acrylic cases i think some look cluttered, Not all of them thou. It seems so hard to make it look all clean and tidy.

    But i think you have got that mastered. And stealthing the motherboard, well i just can't wait to see that.

    What part are you working on now?:D :D

    It’s been a while since I've read through the project logs, but all I saw and heard was check out the Aussie dudes log.
    And what happens? You get [H]'d.

    Well here I am now, and all I can say is WOW

    I am so impressed with the level of detail and the way it’s being implemented into the whole theme.


    Zap, DDK, Macroman etc looks like there’s some competition out there.

    I think G-gnome said it's just because it looks cool, which it does :clap:

    Exactly what NiHiLiST said - it looks cool. Plus, what's better than having 1 resevior? Having 2 of course! :D

    WoW!

    Incredible work man! It's a shame that you'll have to actually put components in it; they'll block the view. Send a pic to the Smithsonian and ask an incredible sum of $$$ for it!

    Hat's off bro!

    Just OT for a sec, I think you're overestimating the /. effect, EqUaTe. Any decent dedicated solution can handle it.


    Back on topic, G-gnome, I hear Electronic systems by M.W. Brimicombe (ISBN: 0174480679) provides a great grounding in electronics. I've just started it, and it seems quite good :)

    OMG

    ... <-- me speechless


    Good work my man, modding projects like this come round once in a blue moon. I can honestly say I havn't seen anything as slick, clean and cool looking for quite some time. Keep the updates coming!

    Bring it on /. !!!!
