Every time I've looked at the case hacks and projects there, I've
noticed a certain amount of Classic Computer vandalism involved that
sorta disturbs me. Not the specific instances as much as a worry that
this sort of hacking might become majorly popular; lots of important
hardware could end up getting disembowled. I can see it becoming a
matter of esteem to have "the rarest gutted hardware known that runs
Windows XP."

Not meaning to be negative. Just thought it would be worthy of
discussion here.


(disclaimer- I once built my Timex Sinclair 1000 into an old keyboard
housing that somebody, somewhere, probably wishes they had intact)
