Sorry for the delay guys, things have been really busy the past week. Here are some pics:

Uncased . . .


Lian-Li A05B Case. It's a pretty nice case IMO:


Inside the case. I know the wiring job isn't pretty but I just haven't had time to mess with it.




I'm still trying to find the time to convert my music to MP3 but stupid life is getting in the way!

Cool, I will say I am very happy with the LG $20.00 diff. Plays both pretty good for the weak setup I have. $20.00 diff.

So I worked at a client's house today and I had to take an external hard drive apart. The guy was a little frustrated at the 2 year old external hard drive and basically, the USB connector quit working (my USB to HDD tool worked just fine). So guess what? I get to come home with a free 500GB HDD!

Looks like I'll be transferring movies, music and misc stuff over to the HTPC some time this weekend.
