A lot of other people will score the acylic glass and break it off that way, for me that was just harder.

Looks like I will have to use my school's laser cutter, its a 15 minute drive but I wanted to avoid having to go there and do a solidworks drawing. At least it will come out perfect this way.

Now I got to decide if I want etch any sweet graphics in the window, hmmmmmmmm

If you engrave things, leave both sides of the masking on and wipe the engraving with a damp rag (NOT paper product) as soon as its finished.
If you don't engrave anything and just cut, it is incredibly helpful to remove one side of the masking and cut with that side up. Again, wipe the edges down on the unmasked side with a damp non-paper rag.
Make sure your machine is well ventilated. Vaporized acrylic is actually chlorine.
Make sure what you're cutting is ACTUALLY acrylic (Acrylite and Plexiglass are the most common brands) and not polycarbonate (Lexan and Macrolon are common brands) as polycarbonate must be cut mechanically and won't cut well with a laser. Learned that one the hard way... tongue.gif

That's all the random potentially helpful advice I can think of for now. I dunno how much of this you know, but I tend to just throw out what I know just in case its helpful.

You know what a really nice material is that no one ever uses? PETG. Fabricated like acrylic with the properties of polycarbonate. Then again, considering the standard set of tools modders have, Polycarbonate is actually the easiest to work with, as it can be machined MOSTLY the same way as metal.

I must be bored.

The problem is that I have an Intel 120GB SSD that I want to upgrade to a 256GB Crucial M4. I bought the Paragon Migration OS to SSD and I have my Intel has the primary (where my OS, Office, Steam Games, etc ), and I use my USB to Sata to connect the crucial m4 that came with it. I migrate OS to Crucial, then restart and set it as the primary and it says insert boot media. I do not have the Windows 7 Ultimate disc or the key that I had but will shortly (getting shipped from my Dads house) and should be here Wednesday. I just dont understand what I could be doing wrong...

Also, when I take out the crucial and put back in the intel, it boots up fine. When I plug in the crucial via usb to sata, it shows that I have 111gb used (which is the amount that I have on Intel)

This is kind of off topic, but I feel really bad for you. I used to work for Corporate Express, who was taken over by Staples. Probably the worst company on the planet next to walmart. I worked in corporate here in Colorado. I remember when they bought us, they gave all of the employees a huge thing of Staples brand pens (which, none of them worked after writing 3-4 letters in lowercase,) and Easy buttons. I played baseball with the easybutton. That thing has more parts than you'd think! Did you know the CEO made a 41% increase in his pay in a year where we lost revenue, profits, stock, and lost our spot on the Fortune 500? Yeah, that's logical.

Anyway, I'm not real sure about the SSD migration. From what I've read over the last year, it's just way easier to do a fresh install than to migrate on SSDs. I know that's really not the answer you're looking for, but you'll have your boot disc in a couple of days, maybe it's best to just wait it out? Also, if you can boot into Windows, your Key will be in the Control panel. You can just write it down and put your key in on the fresh install. Hey, maybe find a MSDN dev link to the Ultimate disc and get it installed? It's not like you're pirating anything since you actually own the product and the key.
