    Well I finally figured I'd rid the closet of some old computer parts I'd probably never use again. I've built some old and crusty pc's for friends who don't have the funds for one but even this stuff I wouldn't give away..... so I decided to do some decorating. Here is the first thing I could come up with, a little computer guy on my wall (about 3.5 feet from top to bottom / about ~1.2 meters)

    Pretty cool man. You should take an old mobo and make a clock out of it

    You've read my mind, I have a dead Dell MB here and a drill looking at me across the room.

    Nicely artistic way of making use of old/dead hardware :)

    Ive made a mirror out of a dead WD drive and have an old gameboy colour cartridge as a little decoration on the side of my sub - when your into tech little odds and ends used as decorations are a nice feature :)
