    Recently I was asked to build a PC for my sister.
    She had fairly specific requests as to hardware, but many details were left to my discretion.
    The case was one such item and I decided to use the Elements model 788bwx, mainly because of it's excellent price and my previous experience with it. One of it's bretheren was Sprocket's first ( and now, current) home.
    Nothing special, looks-wise, but we are conservative folk and it fit our needs.

    To my surprise, when I opened the box I discovered that there had been a design change since my last purchase and the new version has a redesigned sidepanel that features a three color LED fan in the center.

    This would not do...my sister is one step from being Amish and this fan was simply beyond the pale.
    Not only that, the fan was superflous to the cooling solution I had designed for her PC.

    So I did the gentlemanly thing and exchanged her panel for Sprocket's fanless and more conservative one.

    So...despite endless promises never to succumb...I must confess that my PC- Sprocket...now sports a bit of bling.
    I find it strangely alluring, even though it still strikes me as uselessly gaudy.

    Sprocket is enjoying her new role as painted whore of Babylon...

    I thought you'd like to know, Abu.

    Here is a pic so you can all leer at Sprocket in all her wanton sluttiness...

    Got to say it looks pretty good though, clocker
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    No Abu, I just installed the new panel with the fan.
    It is there as I type.

    The picture is intentionally fuzzy.
    Just because Sprocket wants to flaunt her brazen hussiness across the internet, I still have my standards.

    Next, she will want to go out on dates and pierce her ears.

    Oh my.

    It's Saturday night.
    Isn't PC porn acceptable on weekends?

    I suppose it's permitted within the board rules (on weekends) but I still think it's disgusting. :x
