Sounds....different Stone is good to repress noise but I can't imagine it's easy to make a "case".
Who said easy?!? Damn I even said I never done anything like that before and is new territory. Already have all the marble. The white stuff. Heavy as hell!
That should be very interesting!
Hell yeah. Instead of measure twice its measure 18 times or more. Most of the pieces are already cut and polished. Just a few parts that need some special attention like the motherboard tray etc.
Just so you guys don't think I am talking out my ass, here is a pic taken off of my cellphone. I don't have a camera at work and it is here I am doing the work on the case....
You got a project log yet?

Not as high as we wish, but still a great day.
Still it should have been more?
Yeah, we should be averaging about 1.8 a day, but remember ION's farm is down completely because there is no school right now.
We're going to have ups and downs. No big.
Are you actually making the case out of marble or is it going over a metal frame? This is probably a stupid question but I don't really know what's involved in building a case from scratch - especially using exotic materials like marble.
Even in that situation though, how do you mount the marble to a case? In modern buildings when they have a marble exterior I think they use hangers of some kind but I guess that won't work for a computer case. IDK.
edit: yeah, you definitely need to start a project log. I almost never look at these but that one I'd follow. The only one I found here is Black Phoenix
There got the Q9650 up now and a Q6600 ta boot for good measure. Looks nice with the new tubing. Yup the whole case is going to made of marble except for the back part of the motherboard tray. That will be black metal. The hdd bay and optical bays will be made of marble as well. Going to be neat when it's done. Will post the worklog pics when I am done. This is definitely going to be my best work yet so far.
It might be overwhelming to post everything at once. Not only that, I think you will get more interest if you post things as they develop. It's more like a story and it lets people absorb it a little at a time.
That's just my opinion though. Maybe some of the guys who have done and follow mod/build logs can give their opinion.
There's always the chance you'll make a misstep and I guess that can be embarrassing, but this has to be, if not unique, damned close to it. So I wouldn't worry about that. The possibility sort of adds to the drama anyway.

Not such a great day. Come on folks, keep up the great work, no slackin'!
they're too stuffed with all this good food to maintain the rigs
I don't blame them.

Not that bad for a weekend. We need the holidays to be over so we can get ION's farm back, that's definitely a big boost.

Pretty good day, great job you'll.

I'm pretty satisfied with those #'s. What about you guys?
Oh hell yea!!! Great job team
Yup. Slow, steady growth. Good people. It'd be hard not to be satisfied.
Nice to see you'll agree.
I think it is a good "stable number". It is nice to see the 2 million, but it sucks when we hit 1,500. So somewhere in between is nice
We usually hit 1.5 on the weekends which is normal. most teams are down a bit so it's ok.
Somebody passed 100,000!!!!!! WOOT!!!!
