I'm bored, so I thought I'd entertain myself by starting a new thread.. Anyone ever done any wild or unique upgrades? Like a while back MacAddict did an article about "Turning your old computer in to a nitroburing funny mac" They did some pretty cool stuff. Anyone?

iRack predator.

A soon as I get some time I'm gonna rack mount a Rev B iMac carcus with a Voodoo2 card and a Harmoni processor upgrade in an SGI "Predator" rack. If I can get a new LCD iMac I'll add my Rev D and another Harmoni. I think it'd be neat to have 2 iMac 466's with 512, real monitors, 2 hard drives each, FW and enough video RAM on one of them to be useful. I could move to working at home and put in a pair of expansion chassis' for my G4 sawtooth. Talk about "FrankenMac"!!:D :cool:

Wales??

When were Apple in Wales?

Given that I'm working in sunny Prestatyn at the moment, maybe my purchasing a TiBook would rectify the situation??

I don't know that you'd call this wild...

I've got a super bright blue LED that lights up the Apple on the front of my G4, and two more that sit inside the front top clear handle and make it glow wicked blue - it looks amazing.

Yeah, not real wild, but I felt wild while I was doing it - you know, brand new mac, in bits, drill...
