    aqua-computer.de and some partners have released this website - modmymachine earlier on this evening. Basicly - yet to watch the video - is like pimp my ride but for computers :) -- quoted -
    "The first video deals with the modification of Tommy's karaoke PC. It contains 23 minutes of fun, hardware and extreme modding ideas - including a special paint job, a unique TFT flipout mechanism, a front panel with 600 fully controllable multicolor-LEDs as well as two circuits of watercooling equipment to keep the high performance hardware at a cool and quiet level."

    enjoy :) - video at high quility is 414 mb so start downloading :)

    This looks bad, although it can't be worse than that Extreme PC garage crap that XFX sponsered.

    Edit: after watching all of it kinda got boring, and their accents are sooo annoying :lol:

    Tha acting is crap... In my opinion they should have taken more time on showing the actual modding. If they wanted this to be more realistic, they shouldn't have tried to imitate Pimp My Ride...

    But hey, i watched the whole video, so they got me huh ;)

    Pulling this down at 700KB/s :D. It's sinking a few KBps every few minutes though as more people get it :(

    It's not that bad at all. Quite good fun to watch, although they didn't choose a dual-core :blah:. Oh yeah... Did he say "ass-bang" system!?

    Well I thought that was a load of ****. It was so bad I watched about 5mins of it then skipped through the rest. I'll stick to pimp my ride.

    Psshh. I think bit-tech should do their own version of this.

    We have got some amazing modders here as it is.

    If we could get sponsored WOW!

    The format of shows like this just WON'T WORK, EVER!

    The whole idea of modding is pulling up your chair, loggin in to Bit-Tech and rushing straight to Project Logs to see how Defyant's new HPRes mod is coming on, or eagerly anticipating the design of MrWillyWonka's 5.25" drive tray drawer mod.

    Modding should be intividual, non-commercialised and done in stages with words and pictures. Thats my POV anyway.

    BTW: Could any of you decypher what any of the guys were saying in the vid?

    hi there :)


    we know, that our spoken (and writen?) english is not quite perfect, but we tried to do a good modding-job. and i think we did it.

    to reach the quality of Pimp my ride we need the number of crewmember and founds they have


    when you had fun watching our video or looking at our site, then we did a good job.

    Hey man, your english is fine it's either (a combo of) 3 things:

    My Ears
    My Equaliser
    Your Recording Envirionment/Hardware

    I'm beggining to think its the first two :(

    Nice idea but I think it's like trying to do a radio show on TV, it's either just not suited, or you need to find out what makes it "just work" (try asking Steve Jobs :p ).

    Good first try I guess, keep tweaking it and hopefully it'll be a success ;) reguardless of my previous post. I think it's just gonna appeal to certain people, but just not me.

    Yes, I realise I'm a living contradiction! :p :hehe:
