    well, i am a die hard Boston Bruins hockey fan, so i decided that my next case would be dedicated to them.

    i started with a mx-01bd (antec 1040 series with nice looking new bezel... which i promptly chopped off)

    thats the side window... you may notice the split tube covering the power rails...

    the front door is now windowed, and i will be engraving a Bruins logo into it. the etch will be illuminated by one of the following: a yellow/red hdd light flipflopper, done the macroman way as i was too lazy to just use a binary counter; or an lm3914 circuit running off of a 555/741/irf540 PWM circuit. also in the cards is a 10/100bt 5 port hub, mounted forward. i may take a page from GOO and use that nice lexan + transparency route.
