What'd you mod this year?

What'd you mod this year? - 01/05/05 01:13 PM

So, there's an article up on the main page, asking us to vote for who deserves the props for "Mod of The Year."

So, I've been pondering it all day. And I figure that in a way, we all kinda deserve the points. Anyone who got up the moxie to cut, paint, build, damage, or mess with a computer this year, and walked away with something to show for it (even a huge mess) deserves some credit. Those who step outside the box, see the box for what it is. (6 sides that need neon and paint?)

Anyway, the whole line of thought got me thinking about what I've modded this year. So, I pulled some photos and put them up. I figure that it might be fun for us all to share what we've done, regardless of contests and all. If for nothing else than to see everyone elses stuff, and to say, "dude, thats awesome!"

Since I'm the one starting the thread, I'll also go first wink

head on over to


And check out what I've done. All comments, and I do mean all, are welcome!

You must be pretty busy. I like the metallic paints. Now if I had so many computers to mod.

My signature is always a way to tell what I have modded, and the current progress.

I really like "monitor kitty". I was going to do a macquarium with my 21 inch Studio Monitor that was broken, but then it decided to start working again. So I guess I'm not going to destroy a perfectly good monitor. frown

PS How can you ever tell the diff between keiko and sasha?

Yeah, I might just do that. Need to write up about them though smile


Man, I wish they were all mine. The worst part about my job is that I get to play with all this awesome stuff, and the customer's end up taking it home.


Yeah, the kitty monitor is a fav. People come over and stare at it until they suddenly "get it." My feline masters however, were instantly aware of its purpose, and love it.

hmm let's see here:

1984 pro mouse

bought a g4 cube and added a 2.5in 60 gig drive, laptop combo drive, wireless card from a graphite airport basestation, painted the inside metal case, then tried to cut a hole in it and ended up taking it off. the rest is secret for the contest wink

bought a g5 style 20in and built a stand for it to fit into my bookcase.

put a window in my thumb drive.

bought a cheap wireless mouse and painted it to match my pro keyboard and g4 cube

The page, since this thread was initially created, has been removed. modyourmac did a site overhaul and it probably got caught in the flames of progress.

Hey guys, Whitlock is exactly. right. This thread was created a while back. Since then, my site went through an entire rebuild from the ground up. So certain links that were floated around have perished. However, I'm not one to leave people hanging.


Click the above, and then click any of the links on the left in order to see my stuffs.

Modded a whole lot of kids toys, mainly trucks and cars but also tickle me elmo's, talking books and among other things my constantly slowly evolving QS G4.

Now when we go out looking for bargains my little guy (now 2 and a half) finds something he likes and holds it up and says "Dad Fix!" you gotta love that.

BTW HOW do I Mod a "Tickle me Elmo/Cookie Monster" to do the dishes and get me a beer?
