No , that is my assembly chamber ....... lol! Got a big surface area so most of my creations are born there.

The last two shots of it in the bedroom is where the monster lives day to day. :hahapirate:

OK, I am having a less than stellar brain power moment. How do I post a pic of my computer on the thread? I am still learning this website's features.

Hi smile
Try
Click the area marked by the red box.
Click the Choose button (blue box - more common term would be browse).
The the Host it button (yellow box).



Then use the Copy button shown by mouse to do just that.
I then click post area & select copy.
You use the Upload button (red box).
To add to your account (see next post).



An lternative would be something like ImageShack, which is similar to above.

Great post Zeb , very helpful.

Vampire Girl you can also just use a photobucket or imageshack file server if you wish , though the way mentioned by Zeb seems a lot quicker.

Hi smile
Thanks.
I also mention imageshack.
Why the method I posted above is good.
You have an account for images loaded for this site all in one handy folder.
If you wish you can still copy & paste in other forums too. Wink
Best of both worlds. lol!

Will be looking at your other profile shortly. Wink wink

I am glad you liked it. I loved it too. But i can't take full credit for the "build". I knew what pieces and parts I wanted, but iBuyPower put it together for me. Unfortuantely, my exhusband claimed it in our recent separation. It was a small price to pay for my freedom i guess, but i miss her. My next one i will try to do myself. If he didn't take my old purple alienware case out of my house while i have been here in NY with my sick mom. I may try resurrecting it and rebuild its burnt out guts and maybe do a little modding to it one day... it'll be my first time doing that. :rabbit:

This is a pic of my little girl and my very much beloved custom big girl rigg... see why i am so bereft of her loss?



This is a pic of my little girl... my custom HP HDX Premium Series 18inch screen laptop.. she is actually quite powerful and can put some table PC's to shame. I am not a gamer so she doesn't know her full potential.. it's a pride thing for me i guess. :D

Thank you for adding to the thread Vampire Girl. They both look like fine machines there.

I am sure another great custom rig will come you way again in the future too. That one really does have a nice finish to it though.

Well I am hoping to begin my very first home build/mod in a few months when things begin to settle down both financially and otherwise. I am going to need lots of advice, and believe me i am going to ask a lot of questions! I want to use the liquid cooling system i see lots of guys using in the pics on PureOC, and put a UV light to it so i can see it all glow purple and whatever color the cooling liquid glows like. Of course that will mean cutting a window into the side of the case so it can all be seen. That should be interesting! I still have the old purple alienware tower with green cold cathode lights in the "eyes" and a good monitor so i am thinking i might gut the case (the motherboard is fried anyway and i think the graphics card took a dive too, but its all old anyhow so like it matters). :hahapirate:
