Yes, I'm back after numerous months of absence. This is what I've been working on. It's rather crude in design, but it works.

Intel Desktop Board D525MW Mini-ITX 1.8GHz
4GB DDR3
Pico-PSU 150W (and external power brick)
802.11B/G Wifi (recycled from an old laptop)
Toshiba 200GB 2.5" HDD
ASUS DVD burner
Windows 7 Professional 32-bit

I was originally going to install openSUSE but I was able to get a free Windows 7 license through MSAA, so I used that instead.

Thanks. The front handle acts as the power switch. It's shown in the video.

Thanks everyone. There are red LEDs inside which can be adjusted via the temperature control gauge.
It doesn't make toast anymore, but it does burn DVDs.

Aaaah, I see now-the first time I viewed this I think I was on my phone and didnt have time to watch the video. That truly is amazing.

Too cool!

I guess this would be one occasion where you really don't want to hear "your computer is toast".Posted Image

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

The temperature control gauge controls the brightness of the red LEDs that you see there.

This might be one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I've seen the Nintendo toaster but to stuff a fully functioning PC inside, with cool features like the LED control is pretty sweet. This would be perfect to use for looking up recipes in the kitchen, streaming audio while you cook. Good work!
