Congrats on the CPU Magazine feature, Bill! Looking forward to seeing you over at the other place, too. BTW - dig your hotrodded Jetta, hah!

Also, Wired - I agree on those, although I haven't seen all the Cube films. I'd put Event Horizon in there, too (if I haven't mentioned it before).

For something very different & quirky I recommend the following ~

The Brother from Another Planet: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087004/

Night Watch: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0403358/

Day Watch: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0409904/

A Boy and his Dog: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072730/

Liquid Sky: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085852/

Also, I think the Hellboy films are excellent and a B.P.R.D.-themed* case would be killer.

I have Night Watch and Day Watch on bluray :) Not really sci-fi though, so I didn't mention it.

Hellboy or Star Wars case would be interesting. Firefly just has a crazy fanbase. Steampunk + Westerns = awesome, e.g. Wild Wild West (TV show and movie) and Brisco County Jr.

Yeah, I did wander of into just general supernatural & fantasy films a bit...

Pan's Labyrinth is excellent, too - Guillermo del Toro has such an imagination.

Sorry to keep going off-topic!

I need to get my camera setup tomorrow to take pics of my keyboard lighting mod..

Sweet!!! My all time fav sci-fi series is Planet of The Apes....

Did anyone goto Corsair's Suite at CES and see the firefly PC in person?

ThinkComputers.org dropped by my booth at CES for interview

Cool video, almost makes up for the fact that I couldn't go!

I've been looking for some video on the FireFly Tribute case...

Coming soon?

Not that I've seen surface yet! btw: I met Les from SSDReview, and mentioned you're the reason I joined his Forums

DAS Hardware Magazine took some very nice photos of the "firefly" PC in Corsair's Suite at CES... I was disappointed to see it wasn't plugged in, considering how much work I did on wiring everything... :(

Wow - the lighting in those pics make it look even better. I guess because there are so many types of metallic finishes on it, each photoshoot comes out different!

I'll forward that link to my cousin in Germany - he'll get a kick out of it.

Thank you stratos! These photos look great, but I still wish it had been plugged in, and powered up.

Grabbed 'em for my folder full of images from that killer case!

Gee-Willikers, the level of detail visible in those is astounding...

Nope, my local electronics store hasn't got it yet. They have the 500R and the Graphite & Obsidian cases that have been out for a while.

Shiny, indeed...

Thanks for the additional pics - going into my folder again!
