    please change this status!!!

    such a ways off, any chance of bringing it in sooner, or is this to allow the procurement of parts etc?

    only other suggestion i would make would be something along the lines of:
    "no windows boot is required but must turn on and post to bios"

    awesome concept though... time to hit my brother up for his 10% bunnings discount! $110 for my budget :thumbup:

    @ havabeer, status word updated
    the time is for peoples to do their homework/planning & parts procurement
    if you need the extra 10%, do I assume your not the full $$

    @ Defyant, dam that's no good

    At 1st view, "it sounds an easy task", yes you could go all out Ghetto style & pick up a free cardboard box , buy a sausage sandwich & have $97.50 change as already suggested

    If the timing isn't suitable to most, it can be adjusted to accommodate for the majority

    I'd do something, but I'm about to do it now, not next year. Can I do one now and submit it then? Can't see me doing another project after this one for quite some time...
