The Aftermath"You expect me to talk?"
"No, Mr D, I expect you to Mod!"
Well, that's the first stage of WMD completed. Still a lot to do, but if the final result is anything like the vision in my head or the concept illustrations, I'll be pretty happy. There are some exciting things planned for later in the mod to transform it further from what you've seen so far.
My sincere thanks once again to my sponsors: Shuttle, AMD, Engelking, Western Digital, Corsair, Creative, Sapphire, HWLabs, innovatek, Coolercases UK, KustomPCs and Mnpctech - you'll be seeing more of their products in the next article. Again, if you are thinking about buying some new hardware, please consider using these companies.
I also mustn't forget the other bit-tech
staff, for all their good advice, encouragement, and the tireless work they put into liaising with the sponsors, leaving me free to concentrate on modding - thanks guys!
For now, I'll leave you with a few more pics of the progress so far...click for bigger versions.
October 2005 – G.N.O.M.E Labs…
Well, that was Part-1 of the project. I have been working full-time on finishing the case for the last several weeks now - and am looking to finish in the next few weeks - as I have been invited to unveil the mod at a big event being run by Australia’s Atomic magazine (how ironic) in December 05. I was going to wait for the next Olympics or large gathering of World Leaders, but I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too…
The upcoming Part-2 will detail all the work going on inside the case, plus the finishing ‘touches’ (more like major modifications!). I have some very cool features to unveil, especially as the mod is designed to show off the inside as well. I could reveal more, but then I’d have to kill you - all of you!
Keep an eye out for the Mushroom cloud (and next article) in early December ’05.
