Isn’t this considered to be sacrilege to hardcore Mac’ers?

I recieved a dead iMac and I could not get it working, could such a nice computer go to waste? no way! I decided to build a PC inside of the iMac case. My goal was to not make any modifications to the outside shell, and keep it looking stock as much as I could. The only hardware from the iMac that I used in the new computer the cd-rom drive, everything else I bought or already had….

Software wise I am running Windows XP Professional. As you can see in the pictures the desktop looks much like Mac OS X. I used two programs to create this look. For the overall theme I used Style XP along with an OS X theme. And for the bar on the bottom I used Y’z Dock.

The Star Wars Holiday Special


This site has lots of pictures and info about this little known tv special (Thank God)

Coming to the rescue of curious Star Wars fans like ourselves is The Star Wars Holiday Special, a TV offering that originally aired on November 17, 1978, (A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, ya might say), and shows us a day in the life of a Star Wars character’s family’s life, including a lot of what passes for popular entertainment across the galaxy. George Lucas himself was not involved in the actual production of the Special, though it does feature nearly every major character from the first Star Wars film, all played by the original actors. The Star Wars Holiday Special also introduces us to Chewbacca’s family, and features the first ever appearance of Boba Fett. All this and numerous musical numbers fill up two hours of terminally cheesy 70’s TV.
