    Creating temp access to cpanel for webdesigner

    Ok this is probably a very stupid question but I can't figure it out. My webdesigner was going to transfer the new barebones website over to my current host. I can create a subdomain and an ftp for him to log in on but won't he need access to cpanel? If so how to I create an account for...

    Help with some Macbook Pro LCD questions

    From what I know there were something like 4 different LCDs for the C2D Macbook Pros: Samsung, LG, Chi Mei, and some generic compatible. Are these all the same? Can I mismatch replacements? From what I remember the only physically different one is the Chi Mei brand which had different bezel...

    So I finally plated the 3G iPhone in gold...

    Let me start by saying it's a prototype. I have a feeling there's going to be some reception issues with a plated case but maybe some of you can help where I'm not an expert. Since the 3G housing is plastic that means I can laser engrave holes, squares, whatever into the housing before...

    Dream Machine 2008 (Blackbird)

    So I was told the september issue of maxpc came out this week so I guess it's ok to post this. Here's the smoke nickel plated Blackbird I did. My photos were not professional shots at all so they sent this over. Turned out pretty good especially considering the time constraints.

    How did I manage this? (pic)

    In between all these gold laptops, I managed to get these two things. Shipping had to be expensive, they weigh a good 40-50lbs. Teaser pic. More to come in a few weeks/month/whenever it's published.

    What a celebrity Macbook Pro looks like...

    Originally aiming for the polished gold keyboard and trackpad but after 20-some odd test panels, all of them looked too lemon yellow to match. So we stuck to the standard flat/metallic look. I'll save saying who it's for till I know they've received it as it's supposedly a present. Don't want...

    24kt Gold & Sapphires Macbook Air

    So I've had this sitting in the shop for the last month waiting on the jewelry. I wasn't really happy with the look of the jewelry (the green isn't as dark as I had hoped) but I couldn't stand waiting any longer for different stones to arrive...can't complain too much. Anyway it's done enough...

    Chrome 24" iMac

    Odd problem with MBP backlight

    Go figure something completely random would mess with me this week. One of our MBP's was working perfect and randomly the screen went dark (2% backlight?) after rebooting. At first I had thought one of our diamond inlays was pressing too hard against the screen or had damaged it. Tried and...

    24kt Gold 17" Macbook Pro

    Finished this 17" MBP up earlier this week. I received a mess of different sample finishes earlier this week also.. I've been meaning to post them but haven't the time to photograph them all. People keep asking for platinum and white gold (though white isn't very pretty at all) so I'm working...

    24kt gold ipod touches

    24kt isn't exactly practical for these things especially polished but they look good. 18kt brushed would have a been something a little more durable. Also, if anyone knows the secret to getting the glass out of these things, I'm all ears. I'd really like to finish it up by plating the bezel...

    Gold macbook pro......almost.

    Not quite finished with the MBP but here's the bottom side of the laptop. Things aren't going as fast as I had planned but if all the pieces would turn out like this, I'd be happy. Easier said than done though, the top cover was destroyed by a careless plater.

    Just finished this case the other day. The guy wanted a transformers theme and listed off what he wanted on each panel. Black paint, show quality, etc. Sorry for the bad pictures, I only had it completed for a few minutes before he came and got it. I usually don't take any.

    What do normal people think of the Tulip Ego (in terms of looks)? What do you folks think of this laptop? It pains me to see something so simple be marketed only to the rich.
