That was not what I was expecting.... awesome looking case really well thought out in design.

Unfortunately all the graphs have come up with error codes making me wish again that we had static graphs.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Same here. Possibly a Flash problem for Stoner?

Very unique look to this case, but I dig it all the same.

Although I'm sure it's very convenient for LANs and whatnot......I really can't get past the looks. That thing looks like a tank in my opinion (not in a good way)
