Ugliest case contest

There is an ugliest case contest going on over at Modders HQ

http://www.moddershq.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=580

One guy has what looks like an AT case with an ATX mobo in it. Another guy has an AT case that actually has an AT mobo in it! And a 5 1/4" FDD.

I wish I had taken a pic of my old Atari 520ST.

It had originally been designed for 512K of RAM. I upgraded it to 4 meg (all that it would support) using 4116 RAM chips salvaged from old Atari and Williams video games that had been scraped (the Williams System 4 games like Robotron and Joust all had 48K) and a whole bunch of hand wired decoder logic because the memory controller only supported 4164, 41256, or 411000 memory chips. I had a hand built PSU that used a series of linear voltage regulators and a heat sink about as big as an SLK-947U, with a big knife switch to power it all up. The mains transformer was a solid hunk of copper wiring about the size of both my fists and weighed about 40 pounds. All of this plus the mobo and floppies was mounted on a 4x4 sheet of plywood. The system kicked out enough radio frequency trash that I could watch my desktop screen on channel 7 of my mate's TV, and it killed CB and police band radio reception for about a 3 block radius around my house.
