    (I couldn't find another thread with this in it.. appologies if there is one, vBulletin searching sux)


    I ran across this fellow, who did a great job protecting his Mac Mini from prying eyes and light fingers.

    "Security by obscurity is one of the weakest forms of security".

    Hmm, in this case it's more like :

    "Security by obscurity is one of the ugliest forms of security". :D :D

    Well yeah it's secure, but now he has to look at that fugly Dell box all the time. Part of having a mini is the "cool" factor :cool:

    I do not need to do this on my PB, as I sit by it with a loaded 20 gauge...:rolleyes:

    That is cool that he would do this, though I would want to see the beautifulness of the Mini...:p

    Wow, just when I thought I'd seen everything. Why not just get one of those lock things like they have at computer stores, offices and schools?? Would've been easier. And a heck of a lot prettier.

    I think its move of a too much spare time/ project sort of thing. I think its pretty creative.
