You should trademark that in a hurry. Smile

I think it looks like he's holding his arms up and surrendering...

I always wondered about the quality of those LaCie speakers. I didn't know they were making them in USB now either. Didn't they used to be firewire?

There's an old smudge of green paint on my desk right in front of my Mac mini. Can it have its own article? Laughing

Seriously, though, that is one freaking awesome Mac mini. Great job!

Not sure if he's using a monitor, but that makes for a neat looking headless music setup.

Ok thats just sick! This Minis are good looking on their own I think, pretty plain, but good looking. But this just takes it whole...nubba......LEVEL!

Pretty cool mod. This gives me an idea to maybe do something with the Master Chief helmet from the Halo 3 Legendary Edition I have sitting on a shelf collecting dust.
