    At work we have one PC with no restrictions on the Internet so everyone can use if needed or what not since our actual work PC's have all sites blocked unless its related to work. Our mouse pad there is a stack of printing paper. :)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Here's my latest ghetto mod. I needed to transfer some files from in laws lappy to my wife's puter so she could edit some pics. I lightbulb turned on in my head. I received an old usb cd-rw drive from Norton. Said hmmm remove cd-rw drive and insert the only ide hard drive I could find (30 gig). Wahla a external hard drive. I been wanting to get one for awhile but been to cheap to buy one. So now I made one. So Norton you should recognized this. :toast:

    I drilled holes in a 5.25 drive bay cover and inserted it in the front. Just need to paint it black.

    Also I am accepting donations for a bigger ide drive for this thing. hint hint. :toast:

    Excellent Ghetto Mod :rockout:

    My planned Ghetto Mod for that was to adapt in a spare tool-less slide from my Fortress and make it Hot-Swap :pimp:

    I have that universal SATA/IDE USB cable thingy and a cheapie external case for 3.5" drives already so I never got around to hacking that one up :cool:

    It is pretty badass to be able to give old stuff new life instead of throwing it away.

    Hi guys this is my ghetto mod. I used to run (3) 80mm fans pushing cold air in on the motherboard but it was overkill and the dust the motherboard used to collect. I now run the (1) 80mm fan pulling hot air away from the motherboard. U should feel the heat too. Anyways i literally did it with a hack saw and file. No BS!
