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.

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.
