Well, I tried "mount /dev/pc /mnt/wall" and it worked ^^
Here are two pics of it:

Ok, it ain't that fast, it has an P1 with 166 Mhz but better than nothing.

Cool... I'd do it, but my mom would kill me if I attached something to the wall because our landlady would kill her because it is some special insulating wall or something ;) I did:

Code:
mount /dev/pc /mnt/lego_kit_box


instead (started a few weeks ago, it's still not finished ;)). Ph33r the 333MhZ proc! :lol: I still haven't gotten the gfx card and HD though :cry:

Pics:

*(&##(*&! stupid host thing has gone down again. You'll have to wait until it goes back up.

Anyways, I stuck a micro-ATX mobo in a box that one of my borther's Star Wars lego kits came in, and cut some holes for FD and stuff. Now I'm waiting for the rest of the stuff to come in the mail :P

Heh. Looks nice!

I hope everyone in your building has cable TV, and none of them are ham radio operators... :D

My friend has an old P166 mobo on the wall. Tho, the harddrive is on the table. It doesn't have a GFX or sound card. Its just the mobo, some ram and the processor hanging on the wall. I think it also has a floppy drive, sitting on the table. I believe he boots it sometimes to run dnetc. (From the floppy so he can sync it from another computer.)

Good one!

I saw this really cool computer that some students at berkley made. The motherboard floats inside a plactic tube filled with industrial grade silicon gel. Filled with lights it is really sweet. I can't seem to find the link now though. :cry:
