YouTube- DREAM THEATER - Forsaken one of the better songs on that album (and shorter lol)i really think Gen E will like the guitar from these guys. some of their riffs are just good.
YouTube- Dream Theater - Panic Attack this one more of you may have heard. as its in one of those guitar hero like games (i don't know which one as i never played them)

and YouTube- Porcupine Tree - Fear of a Blank Planet

look up Porcupine Trees Sleep Together if you want to also. its another killer track

Porcupine Tree is a COMPLETELY different band than Dream Theater but they are equally complex and musically deep with many layers of individual parts of each track



and i was going to use the Furryletters stuff my self but i wanted to see how the MDPC stuff actually compared and i had time to waste on other stuff and after my math i found that it would result in roughly the same amount of money the way i was going to do it . im honestly impressed with it


EDIT: and Rocker would probably like Dream Theater too if he hasn't heard them before

This band has Disturbed new sound, Ozzy Guitar Licks and Styx style.. it is a winner.. Really very great band.. Really Tight.. I wonder where they did the recording... It reminds me of the same place that Def Leppard did theirs.

Ive stealthed my dvd drive. The cost was less that $5 and the results rock! Heres what I did;

Using my dremel I trimmed all the tabs off my extra slot cover like this


Using a couple of screws on the right side of the case to secure the drive I recessed the dvd drive in just enough so the grill would line up flush with the rest of the slot covers, though it's hard to tell form this photo. I also used a black Sharpie to color over the drive labels on the tray front


Then using these which I picked up at my local hardware store I placed two squares on the front of the drive tray cover as seen in the above photo.


All that was left to do was to line up the grill and stick it on.


The best part is because of the curved profile of the drive tray cover the grill is not rigid and flexes just enough to allow me to press on the lower right hand corner to activate the eject button!


Total stealth and about a half hour including going to the hardware store!

One note though the tooless drive lock no longer aligned with the holes in the drive and I didn't want to drill new holes. I just slid the mechanism all the way forward for the clamping effect of the pegs pressing against the side of the drive. The drive is rock solid with no vibrations. Win Win!

I love this technique.. I wonder if there is a way to hide the see through and just black it out.. It looks great Rocker..

@ johnny. Hey man! Well, it depends on what you mean by "fitting in the 5.25 bay without modding". I used this when I did Mindy's Scout: http://www.mountainmods.com/mountain...?reviews_id=99
It's around $25- including shipping, facing the case, it fits fine on the left, then on the right there's one of thos drive mount fins, I just took a pin hammer and tapped it down until the adapter fit.

Clee used the Scythe Kama bay adapter. These guys have it, but I don't think this is where he got his, I don't know this shop so check resellerratings.com to make sure they're ok: http://www.platinummicro.com/product...d=CCSCKB2000BK

This guys is one of our members, he used the Kama too: http://www.helixpc.com/wp-content/up...1_958x1277.jpg
This is his shop: http://www.helixpc.com/

@ GoodInk. Great rig, very clean!! Oh, Enigma, or was it Rockr, has always recommended using Pledge on the window to make it clear & Shiny.

Ummm, the diff is, it got my ex girlfriends husband 8 years in state prison. It's amazing how far sound travels in the desert, an Arizona State Trooper was parked by the freeway 12 miles away and tracked the sound of auto fire and arrested him.

Also, if you posted that little instruction in public in Nevada you can get arrested. This is the state where it's perfectly legal for you to carry a fully loaded gun on your hip, in your car, in your hands. If you put it out of sight though, like you want to put it in the glove box, you better put the bolt behind the seat, the firing pin in the trunk, the slide (if it's a pistol), in the baby's seat, & the bullets in the hubcaps. Because, if any of those parts are together, you're carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.

Am I the only one that has noticed this: Attachment 160351

This is Rockr's picture, taped under the table is a note that says "Goodies 4 the Scout, Do not throw away!!!"

And here is one of my all time favorite hilarious things to watch, Monty Pythons Lumberjack: YouTube- Lumber jack song

Edit: I hope I don't get sanctioned for posting this but that skit came to the front of my brain because we were watching Waiting for God, before it started Erik Idle did a promo for the BBC, it was hilarious! The all time funniest commercial I've ever seen.

Then at the end of the first episode Diana said "All this Embuggerance is getting to me", I know what the British term Bugger means so I googled Embuggerance, which gives you this website for a free download: http://babylon.com/definition/Embuggerance/

Or this list for Embuggering: http://www.google.com/search?q=defin...rlz=1I7GGLL_en

Edit #2. for Enigma, read the top line, no, actually the second paragraph, again please.

It takes a little more work than that, and there's been people paid visits for just talking about how to do the mods. The batfe don't play around when it comes to stuff like that.

Unnhhhh. johnny, go back and read my response, there's a reason he only wrote that part.


Edit, for addition: HA!!! I was just given the link to a Secret Society of Video Afficianados: http://www.overclock.net/benchmarkin...ark-2-0-a.html

I think I was the first to post in this forum about this technique. And I suggest using the filter foam that came with the scout to black it out, which is what i did. I just cut out a slot the size of the DVD tray and use the same tape to stick it behind the bay cover. Kudos, now there are two of us

I don't know if it's just me who doesn't know what that is, but I have to ask: What is that?

I thought it was maybe that black sand you see in those ashtrays outside of businesses, and he was using it for just that purpose.

Or it could be foam...but what purpose would that serve?
