My utmost gratitude for those who helped me in my endeavors for this creation. Here is a video of it in action :

You guys have helped this dream go from concept to reality, and I hope this little demonstration is a fair exchange for your valuable contributions.

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”     - Rob Siltanen

there is a quote from a klaus kinski theater piece which starts quite similar. (i dont think it´s available in english)

superb dark techno re-use

original speech
... very weird performance... was disturbed by some idiots first... (adorno-influenced students... "ah, you perform a piece of artwork, yes, but [fill in random counter argument here]")... then he repeated it for a selected crowd... 20 years later in 1999 the recording became illegal (just to prove how relevant it was?)

LoL ... decades ago I serviced those beige boxes, turning 128/512k Macs into Plusses, later resoldered dozens of video/psu boards (contrary to Apple's rule), still haunted by the machine's disks buzz from time to time  :D
ps: my own Mini-G4 is running fine in OS nine

Well I guess the next spot to shoot for is a 6th gen iPod Classic retrofitted into an old Gen 3 Form factor, or an iPod Nano into an iPod Mini shell, lol.

In any event I do have ambitions on doing an SSD upgrade and possibly getting a new front bezel and LCD, but in between jobs and holidays have me pinned.

On an unrelated note, I forgot to show this since I finished uploading right before it came, but it does do WiFi via a relay, but that required me re-seating the Ethernet adapter to protrude outward slightly, so I'll have to either shave the extension cable down or the plastic to re-seat it properly.

In any event, It seems positive reception all around, so thanks for everyone who took the time to see the fruits of my, and this community's labor.
