Proposing, the geek way


This guy build a computer mod [read: modified case] to propose to his girlfriend. Check out the photo's. The're really cool [and crazy].

I ended up cutting a side window (which I hand etched with the words "will you do me the honor" with my trusty Dremel), a front window (custom crafted out of some plex I had- matching the curve of the case was FUN!) below the 5.25" bays, painting the entire case white, vinyl dyeing the CDRW, wrapping EVERY wire with white wire wrap and heatshrink, adding lace from said craft store to the PSU and side window, and as the piece de resistance, I created a fake 3 tiered wedding cake decorated with mini ribbon roses attached to the top of the case (the top tier of the cake removed to display the ring inserted inside). Also, you can see in the pics that I accented the case like mad with the mini ribbon roses and lacy wedding-ish stuff. I even went so far as to create a desktop theme for her, with a wallpaper of her ring, and matching icons (her "My Computer" was a ring, "My Documents" was another view of the ring, and "Network Places" was a diamond-- unfortunately I have no pictures of that as the system is now at her job).

I won't spoil the fun by reposting the pictures here, but I will spoil the fun by saying now she said "yes".
