Here is my current list: [ul]- Possibly the most detailed G3 processor jumper guide ever[/ul] [ul]- Sawtooth G4 processor placed in non-G4 motherboard w/ guide[/ul] [ul]- Obtaining funds for Mac Laptop [/ul]
MacBook 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo w/ 2GB DDR2 RAM & 120GB SATA 5400RPM HDD Canon Rebel XTI Google Cr-48 Beta Laptop
My G5 coffee table. Two G5 cases. One is pearl yellow with kandy red flames pinstriped in silver, the other is a pearl teal with metal flake white flames, and purple pinstriping. Gonna put a piece of tempered glass on top and rock the living room hot rod style. I also need to paint a set of shells for my G4 iBook in Candy Apple red. (its an actual kandy color, not just the paint color). Once a friend gets his ibook, it will be pearl black with bamboo and voodoo stuff airbrushed onto it in a yellow/red shimmer-shift paint. All should look pretty sweet.
Electricity tastes good. No, seriously.

I have three projects that i'm working on.
Project one. iMac Boni Blue Rev A to use a slot-load DVD drive.
Project two. Building a case out of plexi-glass for my main PC. It's going to have a Dark red el-wire around it and also i'm thinking to use some window tint from walmart to give it some color. Also I'm building a custom water cooling system for it, making the water tank as part of the case so you can see the water on the side of the case.
Project three. Building a 12 node beowolf cluster, each system with have AMD K6/2 at 500MHz and 128MB or ram. Sadly I don't have 12 hard drives that are the same size. So in all the whole system will be. 6GHz 1536MBs of ram and I think 200.6GBs of harddrive space. I'm using a real big metal trunk to hold off of this in. So far I don;t have enough room for the CD-ROM drives but I don;t need them when i'm finished. Just need the main system to have one and the main system is going to be in it's own case.
I have two projects in mind, but I don't know which will come first.
After I get tired of the beautiful iMac G5, I'm thinking I'll tinker around to figure out how I can make it unique. So far, I haven't gotten many ideas because, lets face it, Apple has made it the epitome of perfection B) ! However, just the other day an idea hit me--the speaker grill on the bottom of the chassis might allow some room for light modding. Perhaps a few LEDs to shine through the grill? What does everybody think?
The other project centers on my 9600/200. This pre G3 model, as most of you know is very versatile. If I wanted to spend the money, I could turn it into a pretty decent G4 with 1.5 gigs of RAM :blink: ! But I don't know if I'll do that--anybody have any ideas?

I would build your 9600 into a file server. How about a g5 case? You could put in a cheap ata-66 drive controller, a couple of fat drives, and a g3 upgrade. I would like to see more macs put into a g5 case. If you look around enough, you should be able to do this for cheap. -maestro
I have a set of fans from my dad's old Dell that i tore into last year. I plan on putting it into my tangerine ibook clamshell so i can overclock it more than normal. I just need to find a place to connect the power for it so it will run regardless of battery power or adapter but i couldn't find a pinout for the display or backlight cables to plug it in. So that project's on hold until i can find one (it's my main machine so I don't want to do anything too drastic to it, plus I'm new to modding and don't know how to do pinouts).
