Crew cases, part two

Just a quick update. The painting is done on the two cases. The yellow case; well the paint job didn't quite turn out perfect and I gave up trying to get a nice smooth gloss after three coats of color and two clear coats. It looks good from a distance or on casual notice but when you get close you notice the dull spots. Oh well.

Still left to do are the Crew logo, the "Columbus Crew" on one of the 5 1/4" drive panels, and possible the LH in a circle (for Lamar Hunt). The black case is fully operational with and AMD X2 processor, 4GB ram, 500GB and 80GB x 2 RAID-0 running Ubuntu Linux 64bit 7.04 desktop. This machine will serve as a VMWare Server server development system with images on the striped array; with management, squid cache, apache, tomcat, mysql and maybe Oracle images. Fun. The yellow will be a Windows 2003 Server based development machine and swap out drive sets with Linux based server development.
