Thank you!

David's response after seeing his case, ...."I am SO excited. If I was wearing shorts, I'd have wet them."

lol

Should have expected that. Maybe your custom jobs should have a disclaimer on the box suggesting that folks open their parcel in the bathroom. I doubt that I would have stopped at wetting. Or perhaps you could send along some complimentary toilet paper? :wink:

PC is a Hit at Comic-Con! Here is the Giveaway replica with David Gerrold, Original TV series writer and for whom we did the 1st case for. It feels good to see we accomplished our mission!

btw: I'm now on Google+ and blogging a mixture of what I consider cool stuff with PC case modding tossed in. Old and new Geek / Motorhead stuff that inspires me, like custom car & bike builders, tools, gadgets, and of course PCs!... I have plenty of Google+ Invites left, just PM your Email addy....

Just got my issue of MaxPC. The 5 page presentation of the back story on David and the Star Trek PC build stages looks fantastic. I've dreamed of being featured in the magazine for past 10 years. I would love opportunity to do another case theme and take it to another level, Scratch Build perhaps? ........OR do Pro bono work on next year's Dream Machine build... 8)

btw: Any SERENITY fans here? a case tribute to the series is another project I'm about to start :)

I personally think that its wrong to sell it but I'm odd like that. It's a one off deal technically two off but still I would have kept it personally. To me it sounds like the person is hurting financially but that is me.

Well, I'm pretty sure they're not selling it because their computer is better. :lol:

If I was hurting for money I would part with the guts, but not the chassis. Actually, truth be told I'd probably sell everything else I own so I could keep the whole damn thing!

You know...now that I think about it, it's pretty tough to sell electronics on e-bay with no feedback. When that thing drops down to $500 I'm snatching it up, fuck the rent! 8)

I sent the seller a note about the $300 Flat Fee shipping. He should revise it, so it's calculated upon the carton dimensions and Location.

Thank you for the kind words and feedback guys :D ...I would like to see the PC find a good home. It was a very memorable project for me. It comes up in conversations a lot by fans of my work. I wouldn't trade that experience of working with Mike Okuda for anything. Getting to know David Gerrold was also priceless. I'll have stories about the whole experience to share with my Grand children. If any of you planned to attend 2012 CES, in Las Vegas, January 10th - 14th, 2012... I will be there! I'll be handing out mini posters of the firefly tribute PC for Corsair. So please drop by and Introduce yourself, I'd love to meet members from MaxPC Forums! I'll be sharing a booth with Fractal-Design, Located on Main Floor, South 2 - 25508. Hope to see you!

and I'd be happy to share some "behind the scenes" stories of the Star Trek Project

the skid of billet, for trek builds...
