Still waiting for it to dry out

It was actually running when the guy got fed up and tossed it over the handrail.

It would be pretty awesome if somebody could get this laptop working without losing too much of the "ocean worn" look... That would be a seriously unique laptop!

So I finally got myself some grey primer and matt-black spray paint the other day, so hopefully I can carry on with my little case mod soon.. I'm also curious as to what's going to happen tomorrow night; it's my birthday tomorrow and apparently my girlfriend has bought me something to do with modding my case....... She won't even give me a hint though! Dangit...

Anyway, I'll have to post some more pics once I'm done with spraying the mesh panels.. Hopefully that will be soon.

Plug it in and see if it will boot

Nah, it's just a conversation piece at the local pub
