Recap I finished my exams yesterday, hopefully the last exam I'll ever do so after a heavy duty celebration I can get back to some modding. Because it's been a long time since I've done some real updating and there have been so many changes since I started this mod I'll post a recap (and later on tonight a real update). The victim An hp e-pc which I got cheap off ebay a long time ago. Celeron 700 128 mb ram 10 gb hdd I made a new case for it with acrylic left overs I found in a bin (anyone say ghetto?) I didn't really like the new look and my dad needed a computer so I gave it to him. Not long ago he got tired of it taking too long to boot so he gave it back to me and slimline e-pc was born, a cad version at least. The original idea This will be a web/file server controlled via ssh, running ubuntu linux or freeBSD. It's going to be in my living room so it has to look good. That was the original idea but I was urged and encouraged by Bindibadgi to use a laptop hard drive wich was smaller and faster than the 10gb I was using. So after replanning a couple of times I ended up with the present design. The real thing That with an intake fan on the right and outtake fan on the left to give it a nice airflow. I found a few problems on the way; Capacitors too tall and hit the middle piece 3'5 to 2'5 adaptor got in the way Parallel port got in the way etc Where it's at I've done most of the outside work but still need to sand/polish the sides to give it a *bling* look. What next? Some sanding to do (a lot actually) Get the cdrom and hdd attached to the middle piece Put a start button somewhere Cut out the outtake Some cable management Feel free to browse the worklog. Comments are always appreciated. If it weren't for somepeoples comments this would be an ugly plastic case and not the beauty it's becoming, thanks guys/gals. BTW I'm looking for a new name, Serve-pc sounds promising.
