Guess what I'm posting from?

Yup, that's right, MY NEW PC! It's _built_!
It's name is Laharl. 'Cause it's little, but it's a STRAIGHT BADASS.
I've got the OS up and running (albeit I can't install XP SP2), all my hardware supported, all my apps installed and configured, and it even joined my domain without any fuss. Now all I have to do is get the rest of my login cookies set back up in Firefox, and somehow get the rest of my video archive off my old machine. This will probably entail ripping my old drive out and popping it temporarily in my new machine, but that can wait for now. My hardware fetish is pretty satiated for the moment, and I just don't feel like ripping back in to the case (which, by the way, came a day early!). So w00t for new hardware, I'm officially futureproofed.

--EDIT-- Done with the media transfer, grabbed my old start menu structure and taped off all my unused power connectors while I was at it. Also fixed slight wiring mishap with the case connectors. What the sam hell are the green and white single pin connectors simply marked + and - for? Ahh, just figured it out, they're for my power LED. Durr. Not disassembling this damn thing _again_ just for that, I'm pretty sure I'll know when it's on.

I'd love to, but the only digital camera I've got is like 10 years old, and the battery's dead. It's in this case (and has a black DVD-R drive in it), but has these A/V breakout boxes sitting on top of it. Imagine that next to a black MDF/steel frame computer desk with a 21" Dell monitor, one of these mice, an ancient-ass IBM keyboard, and a stack of this, this, and this next to the monitor. Oh, and some KLH speakers I can't find a picture of.
