I'll one-up you: doing a similar thing, but on a computer that didn't
have a 3 1/2" drive.  I brought over a computer that did have the
appropriate drive, and reached the cables over between the (open) cases.
The "interface geometry" had to be really favorable, as the cables
weren't that long -> solution: lay the cases on top of each other, sandwich

Comment on the hacker faq: I like it.  Mabey it isn't entirely accurate,
but it is a good read.  Appropriate for a resume :-).

"" (try it)
I'm an amateur hacker, so it's an amateur hack.  This grabs a html form
input and stuffs it into an online guestbook.  Scripts were written in
perl, which seems like a decently cool language (haven't really learned
it yet, though).
