    Love the infinity mirror. Work you are doing is great. :D
    Pyrex motherboard tray: That would be impressive. :lol: I think autocorrect zapped you there.

    I can't help wondering what the res would look like with the infinity mirror effect on it... and the side panels. I wouldn't want to be in the same room with it if it was though. :hehe: You'd need handrails all over the room. "Do not look directly at the computer while standing."
