Less posting.... more modding.

Lol.. j/k McStuff. It is always a pleasure to have you around.

Oh! btw, I did as you asked and called the carrier of your guitar. Here is what happened (truncated to save humiliation).


Me: "Hello, I am Syrillian from OverClock.net and I am inquiring about McStuffs order."

*very long pause*

CSR: "I'm sorry Sir... did you just say that your Celery is overcooked in your McDonalds order?"

*Laughter in the background*

*click*



See? They laughed.

About the tap info, thanks, I'll be needing that for my res.

About calling ups, you didn't enunciate enough that time. Next time enunciate more and speak with power in your voice. And they weren't laughing at you, they were laughing at how ridiculously long their shipping is taking.

As for the modding, it was already dark when I got home with the blades (which were critical). I promise an update with work done tomorrow.

I just seem all you update... is looking freakin' awesome, keep the hard work...
Thank you, Masbuskado.

Someday I would like to move to New Mod City, and have some of that creativity rub off on to me... your ideas and execution are awesome!

But I do thank you for your efforts. I also tend to mumble as well.

So far it looks like I'll cut the acrylic into squares tomorrow, maybe get a corner or two done. Then Tuesday I hope to finish the majority of the corners. And Wednesday I'll finish off the corners and get to sanding polishing. Which reminds me. What grits do you use to sand? And how do I polish the acrylic?

Oh, forgot about the Q&A. I finally got around to packaging the stinger to get repaired, so that's heading out to freddy tomorrow I will need another rad because my 240 can't handle cpu, gpu, nb, and sb. But I'm flat broke, so I guess I'm SOL for now. I just want my computer to sell.

Okay... well, after some more thought followed by some rending and gnashing of teeth I think that I may try a Swiftech Micro-Res V2.

If I do choose this path, I may have to do some modding to it in order to make it fit.

Wish me luck, because this is essentially the part that is holding up the project as I am trying to avoid a T-line.

Sheesh, the rez update(s) completely sneaked by me with all the car photography.

Bummer there Syrillian. Just random brainstorming, but would Tap maybe have an extrusion (hopefully scrap) that could simplify the process a bit?

It just somehow seems wholly inappropriate to me that a <gasp> store bought acrylic res would find its way into this masterpiece.

Sorry to hear about the res issues. But the Swifty res is really nice, and its pretty cheap, so it seems to be a reasonable route to take.
