the sunny d was just something that was easy to experiment with at no cost. I've tried an epoxy putty tube as well - and it looked a damn sight nicer. But I intend to make a better looking one eventually.
As soon as my computer stops being my testbed, I might actually put some effort into how it looks. (currently in peices on my desk having things constantly reviewed on it...)
seriously! it's annoying. I need to build a system for myself that I can spend weeks tweaking and getting the whole watercooler in the case e.t.c and never have to open it!!! it will happen. give me time.
