    i like the belt feature it has=]
    also i need a name for the project as i haven't had time to come up with one that suits the style
    the hardware im going to have in it for now *until i can get new stuff* is pretty basic

    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-8i865GME-775

    Hmmmm. Have you ever seen one of those aquarium ornaments that has the diver with the treasure chest that has a air bubbler inside? This would be the sh*t if you could put a soap bubble machine inside that ran when you opened the case.:hehe: (I know...tacky, but still a cool idea.)

    P.S. -The Spring updates are coming in at a furious pace. Don't sweat the slow responses.

    .ahh nice thinking =]
    just gotta find out what they call them things now. otherwise i could maybe make a thing that sits on the top when the lid opens that looks like gold or something =]
    i have a fair idea of what it would look like to.
    paper mache or something else?
    good idea thanks=]

    Someone did this with a pc one time. I saw it at PDX lan. It was well done, even had doubluns (spelling?) falling out of the case.
