Before my last big lifestyle change (the switch from Windows to Macintosh) one of this many things I enjoyed was the perpetual state of flux my PC and peripherals were in. I was constantly upgrading, modifying, and otherwise "being all up in my PC case." What some would consider hassle was like a hobby. Can I overclock my processor if I add a heat sink the size of a bear? Can I run DirectX 9 using this shmancy video card? Can I put blue lights, spinners and a live band in my PC case? (Yes, I could.)
You buy a mac, and then the modification and tinkering leaves the realm of the physical. No hardware swapouts, no spontaneous drive reconfiguration... Everything is software based. Which is fine.
BUT I WASN'T SATISFIED!! I had to do something, so I tried to change the color of the little Apple logo on the lid.
It was a success, and a disaster. I managed to pry off the lid (there are dozens of little clips holding it on, which were a bitch to detatch) and augment the apple with a splicing of theatrical gels making a reproduction of the original (1984) striped apple logo. It looks fantastic. BUT I CAN'T GET THE LID BACK ON PROPERLY!!
Never have I been so frustrated as with this blasted lid.
So I'm going to run it over with a car. That's right. Just run it the fuck over. How bout that!
