Do It Yourself: iBook Server With Special Bookcover

Most of us store our old, broken laptops on our desks, under our beds or as door stoppers - without spending much time considering more innovative, artistic or geeky ways of housing and using our once beloved machines. Not the case for the folks over at the Chaos 2.0 blog, who turned an old iBook with a faulty screen (as in not working at all) into a server.

While the handy folks from the Chaos 2.0 blog warn they take "absolutely no responsibility for any destroyed iBook," they are featuring a fun Do It Yourself guide on their site. I don't have the time or guts, but if you do, I want to see it! Have you created something geeksugar worthy, been to a geeky museum exhibit recently or run across funny gadgets while traveling? Share your photos, news, reviews and tips with me and I'll feature my favorites on the homepage. To learn how to post your finds to the Geeky Things I Love,

I know that this long list looks scary, but trust me, once you get the hang of it, it'll be a snap the second time around.

  1. First of all, join the Geeky Things I Love
  2. Click "Create and Share!" on the left hand side
  3. Choose "Blog"
  4. Give your photo a Title
  5. Leave the category as "general"
  6. Change the channel to "technology and gadgets"
  7. Add keyword(s) (for example mine for this post was "museum, Lego")
  8. Click on the "Add Image" link below the "body" box
  9. A popup window will happen - click on "Browse" to find your image on your computer
  10. Once you have the image chosen, click "Submit"
  11. The popup will show you your image, choose size: "normal" - if you want, you can give it a title (which will show up as a caption)
  12. Click "Insert" and the popup will go away
  13. Your "body" box will now have some text in it. Leave it as is. If you want to add some text before the picture telling me why you love the download, do it before the code that has appeared.
  14. Click Submit

So join the Geeky Things I Love and start sharing your finds. They might end up on the geeksugar homepage!

Great Idea. I wouldn't go with such large font on the side, but still this is great work :) BTW.. All my old PowerBooks and an iBook still function with in normal parameters :P (This is Data's phrase) The only problem is the battery, they work only while plugged in, and that is why I don't use them, unless I am showing off with my old Macs :D
