I'm not going to be using an etched piece, although I've been experimenting with a diffuser panel.
You need an edge frame, to keep the different layers of acrylic together and to keep the LEDs in place.
Also the LED will be a bit brighter few mm around the acrylic and metal frame hides that.

As for the etching, depends on the effect you want. For light to be thrown evenly and bright you need to etch on transparent acrylic.
For the top acrylic I am doing a RGB strip around a single transparent acrylic and I will use the glue gun to keep it in place. More to come on that...

[Edit] Hypothetically you longer need to etch due to a new product called EndLighten.
I have an EndLighten sheet, but didn't get a chance to use it. And for the top acrylic that I need I don't want the entire sheet lit up, just the artwork in previous page.

Transferring data from computer to computer using Linksys Gigabit network switch is not that fast....faster way to transfer a TB?

E-sata HDD enclosure, if you have one. But 1TB will still take a while.

Move HDD into new PC and use sata II or Sata III connections. Will show up as another drive the. Drag and drop. Removes all the TCO/IP overhead and sata is 3 or 6 gb/ sec. Only thing faster would be block level copy.

Thanks RatDog.
Thought of that as soon as Bart said external HDD enclosure. Too lazy to take it apart and install drive on other computer... Just going to let it run..

I don't know what to do now.. other than clean the pool and wife's on my case to clean the mess on the first floor. Like a war zone, compared to my office...

Need suggestions on next build !! YaY for my son ... less than 1K for computer.
Looks like I have spare SSDs when OCZ return, so that's covered.
Already have a monitor. And a Blu Ray player whose front plate I fried.. Even have a memory card reader, and USB hub.
This 32 GB RAM in my computer looks like a waste... RAM Disk maybe..

So PSU, Mobo, CPU, maybe GPU ... He needs to play Sonic PC version on that computer which is main horsepower. Rest is all surfing, YouTube and making videos (wants Sony Vega...hmm).
Rest of the time he on PS3.

Suggestions?

Pictures with all panels on:
Front View

Right Side View:


Top and Front View...With cutout. Redid all the PEMS. and straightened out the cuts. Hammered the PEM holes till it was straight. Last time there was a small depression where the PEM was and...and..
Anyways as long as it is leveled , I don't really care now..


Left View (you have to tilt your head left to see that right... sorry).


Rear View:
