My wife is a lurker around here on these forums, thought I would show off my "craft" as well.  What it comes down to, is I am a computer geek, that likes to case-mod...that is chop apart my computer case until it looks kewl....

So, I have created an online journal that is slowly documenting the progress of my mod...it is a little slow moving, but I do hope to finish it by the end of July.  Here is the home of my journal:

And here are the pics:

ooooo.... its purdy (but your links aren't working  Undecided) I'm not allowed to go anywhere near the inside of my pc because i make things blow up - not due to any particular ineptitiude just because electrical things don't like me - i carry to much magnetic charge its very odd. And I doubt I can ever convince my flatmate to do anything that cool to my puter. He's lazy... maybe if I actually make the headcrab I promised him...
anyways love the work

Cute. There was an exhibition at the "museum of technology" here in Stockholm, which featured a load of mods. Some were really cool. There was a lego box, a teddybear-on-a-book computer, various more standard mods, and some nifty paintjobs. I actually didn't see that many noticable mods when I was at Dreamhack 2001 sadly enough, and considering the amount of 'puters there, that's surprising. Cheesy

that's very cool. I'm always impressed by computer mods--I fear the combination of crafting and electricity.
