I just noticed this part of the rules:

"we’re going to be weighting entries based on the quality of contribution, using our comment system’s integrated voting button (those 'Thumbs Up' and 'Thumbs Down' buttons you see in the comments on the news page). So if the community likes your stuff, so will the contest gods!"

Good god, I hope all of the "Anonymous" fan boys voting my comments down in the 'Turkey Arrests" news thread don't bring me down. :( LMAO!

Good god

Don't sweat it,.... you're doing just fine. Post allot and try to make it the perfect post, every time,....Smile

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

This looks like a relative of KITT. And I have a david hasselhoff figurine that would go great with it.

KITT had this crazy machine inside of it :) Though personally it looks more like it should be a transformer to me maybe a Deceptacon.

Also with you Manduh. I sometimes prefer the forum view especially with these really long threads and it would be nice to mark good things.

@Shelly25 Is that all you write? (kewl tower)

I could be wrong but I doubt posting the exact same 2 words a hundred times in the same thread counts as being an active member, But good luck :D

Haha isn't that the truth LBowen... and in 11 days the students will be on summer break here so I can really abuse the hell out of that F5 key.

@rrplay if your golf swing you would be a pro golfer and I would happily be your agent.

That's not all he wrote. In his first post ever in the history of time, he wrote "awesome tower".

Also wow, how the time manages to fly so fast. 11 more days till the contest ends, wow...

I know what you mean I just finished collecting my 800th laptop from students before the school year ends so I can start getting them all fixed up over the summer.

Holy Baloney that is Freaking Awesome!!!  At first I was thinking it was a robot or something one of your students might have made then my mind imploded once I realized the sight I had the good fortune to behold.

Kewl robot, kewl tower. lol Actually that gives me a good idea for a mod :) of course I'd better stop myself there or I'll wind up with more "junk" in my closet. Like this

 

This was going to be a cool Fallout 3 mod :\ never got around to it. Hopefully one day.

That's actually a good idea. I really hope you use the TV on top as the monitor for your mod.

That was the plan unfortunately you're trying to mix ancient technology with the latest and greatest, you run into so many problems. I did some reasearch and telstar actually acquired the rights to the predicta line and produced updated, colored versions but they're not cheap. however, these older ones are worth a pretty penny in working condition, luckily this one was free! Neighbor was throwing it out and I immediately took it lol.

What kind of laptops do you use? I imagine it was quite the process to choose a model that would hold up to school kid abuse. I agree with you guys I'm ready to see Marco's build vid!

I just watched the ibuypower.com build video. It was pretty cool, soooo many radiators!

 

Now you're just mashing it!
