    Haha...the first comment under the article captured my thoughts exactly: "Why would my RAM want Pizzas?"
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    Amazing. Seems a little frivilous to me.

    The whole computer "modding" thing seems frivilous to me.
    Hmm

    It's cool when someone does a nice job, but it still doesn't make it run faster. I'd rather spend my money on upgrades than lights and special cases.

    Frivolous? Perhaps, but when did that suddenly become such a bad thing?

    It took me a minute before I realized it said Pizazz and not Pizza...

    I'd rather have a really sweet case, a really big monitor with christmas lights, a blinking keyboard/mouse, and lights everywhere in my case with a:
    333 Mhz AMD-K6
    256 MB SD RAM
    32X MAX CD-R
    8MB nVidia GeForce graphics card

    than a:
    2.26 Ghz
    512 MB DDR RAM
    40x12x48x CD-RW
    128MB nVidia GeForce3 Ti200

    with no lights.

    both have WindowsME

    anyday!

    And that my friend, makes you a giant tool.

    And if you're just trying to be funny.... stop. It's not working.

    I think the point of fancy cases and lights is to show off the hardware you have inside. Screw the case, just attach it to the wall.
    Microsoft is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistant one.
