Anyways the only thing you need to add to the blog is a favicon.ico. The little 16x16 pixel picture that appears next to the url. Oh and i really like the Simpsons case also. Big fan. Except i would have used more of the yellow instead.
Thank you, we're making a really cool skin for it this week, I'll check out the favicon.ico!

I did some shopping for this build this morning, heres the products and links

Texas-Based Server Provider Explosion Affects 9,000 Servers, 7,500 Customers

Houston, TX (AHN) -- An explosion Saturday evening at a Texas-based, privately held server hosting provider has caused server outages effecting 9,000 servers and 7,500 customers.

According to The Planet's website, at about 5 p.m. Saturday electrical gear shorted, creating an explosion and fire that knocked down three walls surrounding their electrical equipment room.

No injuries were reported and no servers were damaged or lost.

The Houston company, which provides servers for small and medium sized companies, said it has its entire support team working around the clock to get the servers back on line.

They estimate they will be up and running by Sunday afternoon.
I started cutting the Kenpo patch/fan grill yesterday in a 1/16" thick sheet of styrene plastic.

We milled two different versions of the 120mm Dragon front grill intakes yesterday. So you'll see some slight differences between the two designs around the Dragon's mouth, the concern is support with being attached to the outter ring. These were cnc milled from 3/16" thick 6061 aluminum. The multi-hole fan grill version we're used as a bottom layer in these pics is "Brain Drain" Again, this front intake is ornamental , so if you had considerations regarding airflow...it will do alright for our needs

Thanks Drizzt5!

btw: the multi holes in the 2nd grill are 1/4" diameter, plenty of airflow.
