I'm guessing no woman has ever entered that house hold

That's an insane collection though man.

My friend has quite a few buckets full and we're attempting to build the lego case....ITS A SPACE RACE

I had a friend who mounted all his stuff inside a big picture frame and hung it on the wall over his desktop.

It looked pretty cool, especially since he had good looking hardware that was colored and had lights and crap. Kind of a pain if you were watching movies at night he said. Guess so, he had so many lights I'm surprised planes didn't try to land in his house!

I would find a way to install it in your car. And buy a small cheap lcd and a keyboard. Use it in traffic jams. Some guy down the street has a car shop, and somebody brought in an old mecedes benz, it had an LCD screen in the dashboard, and PS2 buttons were built into the steering wheel. for a computer all you need is one of those small PDA keyboards built into your steering wheel.

if you want the computer to last for a while and to look good you can take a day off from work and make yourself a wooden case, im sure there will be blueprints online but if not you can always have fun designing your own like I did.
the case will probably end up smaller than a proper metal case if you do it properly anyway, and weigh less.
