    Re: My new SFF PC ... just put together 1

    Edit the second thread to remove the pics etc and then put a message asking for it to be deleted if you want to keep it tidy.

    I'll edit my posts to be deleted too.

    ... I will tell you a secret, but promise to not tell anyone, alright ?

    I found by accident that everything I place infront of the poster with the skull, starts to float - just like that. First I was puzzled, but then I thought: hmmmm, must be a portal or somethin'
    Why not taking the oportunity and taking some pictures ... as long as it lasts ?

    I just have to be careful what I put infront of that picture. Had recently put my bowl of cornflakes there for a minute and suddenly the milk was spillt everywhere ... that was not funny.

    Anyone wanna have a poster "Pirats of the Caribean" ... for free ?

    *cough cough*

    hmmm, there is a reflection at the top... of that image...
    Well spotted ... that is because the whole poster is still sealed in transparent foil.
    Had planned to get a nice woden frame, but then left it like it is.

    ... it could be resting on something small ...
    Yep, it's resting on the palm of my left hand while I took this picture with my mobile phone (Motorola V3x) ... with the right hand.

    The case is incredible light ... when empty though.
