    any ideas about this

    o and i just tried the headphone thing again using the headphones i use at lan parties (its a 3.5mm jack so i use a converter) and with the converter in it just barely blocks the 2nd usb port, so ya i cant use it, but i NEVER used 2 front ports at the same time, and i only use the headphones at LANS and i never plug anything into the front usb anyways

    walmart carries bondo, and if you go to ratshack they used to carry a adapter to go from 3/8th to 1/4 with about 2" of wire so you can get that and still use your second usb

    Looking good so far, will keep an eye on this to see how things progress for you. :hip:

    Go to ask though, just out of curiousity, did you happen to get this case from Tiger Direct? I just picked up two of these same cases (in black mind you) from Tiger, and managed to get them for $40.00CDN apiece.

    for the hole, if bond-o isnt good for you, then try filing it!!!

    Also if you file around the usb ports,it will look much cleaner

    Other than that, what colors are you going for?

    Another thought, get a peice of heatshrink tubing to cover the end of the green wire sleeving on the usb extension ports, it will look cleaner, unless you have something else in mind

    Good job

    hmm imo that cover for the hole you made looks kind of dorky imo. i would bondo it and then remount the port somewhere else. but this is just my opinion :blah:
