    @ModMinded - Thanks a lot mate. I should have explained that pic a bit. That is a shot of the built in LCD on my Logitech G15 Keyboard. I made that applet for this mod, under the time (top left) "Project: LEXA" scrolls from left to right and it also monitors RAM and CPU usage, FPS (thanks to FRAPS) and screen res and refresh rate.

    I actually got my Dremel back a few days a go, they just replaced the rotary switch and it was good to go, didn't even need to be sent to America which was a bonus as they were gonna make me pay for that.

    The engraving didn't turn out as well as I would have hoped but I still like the effect. As for engraving backwards on the rear of the plexi, I never tried it. I would get confused lol. I am gonna rub a bit of white pencil on the engraving to help it stand out a bit better.

    @oldnewby - Thanks very much, a huge compliment coming from a master himself ;).

    As for the next mod, I have 2 lined up actually but until I get some finances together (probably in the new year) and hopefully a few sponsors, my ideas are staying up here *taps temple* lol.

    Thank you Craig and thanks a lot tomcatt.

    I am really happy and proud of the work I have done, it has also got me some much wanted media coverage. I have been featured on the front page of TBCS twice during the modding stage plus LEXA has been featured on Bill Owens mod blog, not to mention my MOTM nomination (THANKS). I am absolutely WRAPPED!!!

    Hopefully I can start another mod soon but I don't think it will be until after Christmas.
