Wow, you have some nice-looking mods on there (not to mention an impressive selection of hardware). What do you do for a living?

And what is this Campus Mac thing about?

its only necessary post the mods with their photos & links?
or i must explain step by step the mods & the manufacture.

and....
its necessary additional registration to participate in the mac mod challenge?

i'm asking for this, but... i can search too.... laugh

CampusMAC, it's Asociación Cultural Campus MAC ( http://www.campusmac.org )

its similar an a lan-party in spain. But only mac users (of course)
only one encounter at year.

but isn't only a game-lan-party...

the assistants distribute free short courses of new mac applications (video, digital photo, unix&linux news &more)

theese are only the mac-room photos, but you can look the forum if you interested for more photos or the comunity.

thanks to ask this smile

Those mods are awsome you should defenitly enter them in the mod challenge. That Lan party looks nice too. The macworld expo should be more like that. Nice specs on your G5 too. :woohoo:

Re:G5 Versavision Mod (with acd23 - 08/23/05 11:43 AM

yes, it's very good idea, but... isn't mine smile

ok! i'm going to publish 2 Mod Guides, i only present in callenge the G5 Versavision in the case mod's section, and the 9600 @G4 in the case section too...

i'm looking to publish other mods... but... i'm not safe of this...

are sufficient good mods for internal mod, for example the 6100-mini ATX? i'm not sure... XD http://homepage.mac.com/quilicus/PhotoAlbum18.html

thanks to inform to me of the challenge, and thanks for animate to present my mods! smile

the very big impediment to process the guides are my ominous english...
sorry about this... blush

see you later smile

I hope this doesn't come across as too critical - but why did you choose to use wood? Further, have you though about finishing the edges of the wood with a router - maybe put a nice bevel or chamfer on the edges?

Neat mod though...

Re:G5 Versavision Mod (with acd23 - 08/27/05 12:39 PM

hi javadog! smile

this is my comment in the callenge guide:

The reason because i use wood it's simple, i save the original pieces, the tft foot and the original cover. And if i need change this config to original, its so simple!

------------------------------------------------------------
but... you are right!

the edges are not very well finished

you were not first in observing it unfortunately blush


it thought about covering the edges... or... cover the wood with aluminum plate...

but...

I did not think about using another thing that the wood because it had that wood by hand... and I am very impatient sometimes

we could say that one is a "beta" laugh

I have thought to finish fixing it... but... I do not think that it finishes on time for the challenge.

my idea was to use an thickness aluminum plate

thanks for your appreciations
