Without being fanboyish (before Abs starts attacking me :robot: ), but why did you dismantle your entire keyboard and your G5?!?
Just to take the pictures??

Nevertheless, the pics are great, always wanted to see every single part of a G5 PowerMac. :cool:

Umm... well, i need something different for a wallpaper, so i thought i'd rip apart the most lovable thing in the house and take mug-shots of it crying out in pain as I unscrew every nut and bolt and shred to bits everything that wasn't moulded from the same material or that i wanted to make a whole load of macfanboys and girls cry because it's fun watching people cry as someone takes apart something that supposed to be perfect or it could be that I needed a case to house my dual amd opteron but it could be all three though, what did you think...

I see... :spook:

Well, no reaction from the fanboys until now...quite strange...
The title of the thread doesn't sound alarming enough to make them appear, I guess.

Personnaly, I think it's your property, and you can do whatever you want with it. I was just curious of why you took it apart.

Does it matter that i ripped the guts out of a G5? It might be a dream machine for some people but it's not a dream machine for everyone... looks great on the wall though...

*powers it up and throughs darts at the logic board*

my coffee!!!
:eek:

As I said, I was just curious to know why.
It's not a dreammachine to me either, it's just simply a computer, a tool. I never dream about machines or tools...
Nevertheless, I rarely put apart something that works, unless I want to upgrade parts.

Personally I think it's a bit daft to take it all apart, but that's just me

If you ever decide to throw it off a tall building, let me know so I can be waiting to catch it, I could use a G5...
