Got a frame for it yet?
Not yet. I just dug up the lappie today and I wanted to check it out and see if it was operational.
The lithium backup battery is dead so that needs replaced (BIOS error on every boot right now) and it doesn't have WiFi, or an operational battery. Only 1 USB port too.
I'm going frame shopping this weekend after I refurb the laptop so it works normally. I'm half tempted to completely strip the laptop casing and build a steampunk frame for it though.
Holy crap, how much does that thing weigh?
How's your malware problems
i have an old laptop lying around that barely works. i should try this. too bad i'm a lazy sob.
fixed them. Contrary to OT beliefs, I do actually know what I'm doing.
Not much actually. Without the battery it's pretty light. It's mostly air in there.
I'm probably going to strip the rest of it down to the bare minimum and get rid of the optical/floppy drive (yeah, it has a floppy drive) and replace the 2GB hard drive with one of these: http://www.addonics.com/products/flash_memory_reader/ad44midecf.asp and a 2Gb Ultra II CF card.
When I'm done I'd be surprised if it weighed more than 3lbs.
Sure didn't sound like it

Oh, hi. welcome to my IL.
Can't handle a little harassment?
let me know how it goes!
i bought all of my stuff at michaels. bring the plastic frame (that you took off the laptop) to the store with you to make sure you find a shadowbox frame that will fit, and (more importantly) a pre-cut mat that will show the entire LCD.
There's a Michaels a couple miles away from me too. I'm going to go with a really large square box so I can put an oversize mat in it (I like that look) but that will probably mean I'll need to get a custom mat cut. Not a big deal though since mats aren't too expensive.
I'm trying to keep build cost to <$75 including the CF drive adapter. I've reconsidered the steampunk frame since I'm too lazy to build it. lol.
you're gonna have a gettho epson P-2000
That's not cool.
what exactly are you doing?
Yeah, putting a douche on my IL is really unfair.
Building a DPF.
Well you might as well IL me too. He's cool.
Do you need the battery why not just plug it in instead?
I don't like his av or his appetite for child pornography ...but other than that he is ok.
