Got "just stuff"?
Cheers Shannon and great work!
The one I'm using is just an Athlon XP, though. It's not 64 or anything like that.
And yes, I'm planning on using SUSE. I was excited to see the XGL graphics thing had come out for SUSE and everyone liking it since I had already decided to use SUSE. I'm not sure if I should try it or not, though.
The case looks pretty cool, granted I'd probbably never own a pink case myself, but I thinks it a neat idea for a feminine case.
XGL on Suse you say? What was the earliest version with that feature?
the XGL is, like, an addon. http://en.opensuse.org/Xgl I'm not sure exactly when it came out, but everyone was talking about it somewhere around last week.
I've been wondering about the system requirements though and I haven't really seen them listed anywhere.
I never thought I would meet a girl who knows more about tech. than I do (wait a second, I already know another one. . .). Anyways, thanks for the link, XGL looks pretty sweet. I wish I could give it a try, but my Linux guinnea pig is an old 600MHz P3- it runs pretty smooth, but the video card is a GeForce 3. You were asking about the system requirements, that link you found did say what video cards it needs. Whats really ironic is a have cheap, low budget GeForce 5500 (I think my GeForce 3 actually performs better than the 5500) which would meet the system requirements, but the board in my guinnea pig doesn't play nice with that video card. I'm tempted to pry the hard-drive from my guinnea pig so I would have one to slap in my main rig to try out XGL, that way I could preserve my copy of Windows for whenever I need to play games. I dread re-installing XP, I don't want to call India to listen to someone with a horrible accent try to read a 20-digit number to me. . .
Yeah, I've re-installed XP so many times that I practically have the sequence memorized and I hate having to call that number now and explain why I'm reinstalling my copy of XP.
So I decided that I need to do the stencil in 2 parts, so here I am doing the S part of it on the side of the case.
Success! not perfect, but I think it looks pretty good.
When the stencil dries I'm going to do one on the top of the case too.
Ummh you should use tape for masking instead of loose newspapers. I can't say from a pic that small did it or did it not spray over the lines but that happened to me when I tried to paint w/o tape
here's the bigger picture:
it didn't really spray over the lines, and the newspaper was plenty big enough to cover the whole rest of the side.
I wanted to get a pink case just to toy with people at work. (I have BRIGHT pink ethernet cable.)
hmm whats going on - i can only get 1 of the pics on this page ...
I ment that if the sabloon isn't taped, the paint might go between it and the panel. I didn't mean spraying over the outer edges.
no, it came out fine. I did flatten it out alot first, though.
nice. I've been wanting to get some pink ethernet cable.
I've seen purple ethernet cables, but never pink.
Okay, so I did one on the top.
I taped it down more this time and I think I actually got a little more under the edges. I think it was the angle, though. I'm not very tall.
I think it'll still look good once I get the border part on, though.
And I did actually have to put on some sunblock to go outside and paint, because it's 100 degrees outside on our patio.
It appears to have gone under the card at the top right, try touching it up with a bit of the original paint.
Yeah, I'll probably touch it up a bit after I put on the border part.
Youve got the s the wrong way around.
Have the bottom towards the front of the case.
