It's a good thing you won this contest, the_dope, because if you had won Contest #4, everyone would be so jealous that they wouldn't even speak to you.

Wow, I'm kinda surprised to learn that my case isn't ugly!

All the 'ugly' cases were sort of ugly -- it was really tough to decide, to be honest. But in the end, those five were the five Madmat and I decided to choose as the top five ugliest.

Congrats the_dope_chaud! That old case can now be used for kindling like it's begging to be. I'm happy you no longer have to worry about it bursting into flames!

Ahahah! Thanks!

It is, actually, kinda cool, because (you can't see it in the pictures) it has no bottom. The motherboard is held aloft mostly by its edges. Not the best thing to do to a still-working machine but it's old so who cares.

Now, see, that is extremely cool. Maybe next year we can do something about the most original case mod and you can enter it then. I really like it and it deserves some recognition but, damnit, it's just not ugly.

Congrats again on the sweet case.
