Default Vader Mod

ok, so, not really a casemod, but it goes with the theme of my case.

256mb readyboost compatible Lexan Jumpdrive: already owned.
Darth Vader action figure: Walmart, $5
Soldering Iron, razor blade, small screwdriver.
Time. Stupidity. Genius.

Darth Vader Flash Drive.

The head is the cap. Cape, lightsaber, and utility belt all there. It works.

Default heyyyyyy now

alright, thanks a lot everyone!

LoL i know it looks ridiculous... even more so are people faces when whip a Vader action figure out of my laptop bag... especially when i rip his head off and shove it into my computer... lol

ridiculous, yes, but what else do you do with an old flash drive? lol... i was going to paint the lexar, but goof-off or whatever its called melted the plastic... shoulda used "oops". it looked like a$$, so i tore it apart and... the rest is history.

btw, as my sig reflects, i got a 4gb cruzer mini for $65 online the other day, and its currently setup as readyboost. niiiice. there IS an ADATA 200x "pd7" i believe that works for vista, if anyone wants to know, and its about $60 if you look around. You can't get it much cheaper.

the absolute CHEPEST i found was a $36 pqi 'traveling disk' 4gb. its slow as **** though. i called pqi and the rep said the random write is around .3MB/sec. poo.

oh, and the PNY Attache 4gb does NOT work for readyboost. the read speed (apparently the more important half) was ok i think, but the write was very slow. too bad, it had a nice gloss black housing with red led. *tsk*.
