Well I have done the best to improve and repair what I can. I found another magnet flying around inside the monitor and gluing it back in place fixed the sagging picture, the entire system has been cleaned, I have not upgraded to 64Mb of ram and I replaced the dead 380Mb hard drive with a newer (and quieter) 2.1 Gb Seagate drive.
Now all that is left to do is hear from Nitro and see if that paint he has matches the paint he has on his cube (at which point I'll ask to see if he can somehow shop a little of it), install NS 3.3 and get a few other extra pieces of hardware.

Congrats. There are few computers more fetish-worthy!

No surprise, it finally happened. Rolling Eyes
I turned the system on and after about an hour the MO drive decided to spin up (mind you there was nothing in the drive) and now it won't spin down.
Grrr.....

Thanks but I didn't make the logo, someone else did ti for me because they were bored.
I also got a little update.
I have a friend on another forum that is offering me a NeXT Dimension board! He didn't specify how much but by the sounds of it he might be giving it to me for the price of shipping!
Well well, now it looks like I need to find a Soundbox. Wink

I moved recently and all of my NeXT stuff is in storage, so it will probably be a while before I can test spray any of the paint. Congrats on your new cube.
