have you voted on my blog?

I think i'm not going to be able to use the CMStorm, so the lian-li is the case i'll end up using

A quick update.

I've had to use the lian li as it's the only case that takes two power supplies

why would you need 2 power supplies? what hardware will you be running that requires 2? would one be enough?

nice job stealthing the drive, does it still open and close okay if you press on the corner?

I voted orange for the case because it's ubuntu themed, wouldn't be right to do any other colour.

I've not been able to test yet. i'm missing the everything else.

I put purple/violet as an option because some of the newer versions of ubuntu use that too.

 

Since i'm in brisbane (eagleby) till saturday, i've got the case being powder coated in orange now. I've went for a "ripple" effect because it makes the paint stronger. Thanks to Beenleigh Powdercoating. Pictures will be up on sunday.

I got the first 200 feet of paracord today, i'm using some to make a belt so i get it free. (parents pay)

I also got the vinyl wrap and i'm printing a A3 sized logo stencil today (for the side window).

IceModz has sponsored me, today is a very good day.

I've also finished wrapping the DVD drives

Trust me MS, this will go further. I just need to get a dremel to cut the panels and some more paracord to weave the top panel. Plus another sponsorship deal is being worked on.

Ive trusted and been hurt before....... I'm not sure if i'm ready to love again.

You're not helping.

 

I'll have a proper update this weekend, it will probably be more vinyl wrap, the stencil, and announcing my sponsors.

wait a minute.... are you cutting AFTER painting? or is that just a base coat. I hope so....

The former (I got the powdercoating cheap), but i do plan to repaint or cover anything that looks bad once i'm finished
