Heavens above, I seem to be doing a sales pitch! Whatever next? I'll be turning a profit!
Anyway one dark day in Winter, I was looking to buy some new cases for some builds we had coming up. I was intrigued by the existence of cases that cost £11. Suddenly overcome by stinginess/thriftiness I bought one to see what it was like.
This picture shows what it was like, but you can't see just how thin it was. Think 2 layers of Bacofoil. It would be ideal in a house where nobody ever touched anything.
Of course I wouldn't insult any of our patrons with a case of that sort so I left it in it's box for ages. The box had massive letters saying Concept of Life! on it, a phrase so buoyant and positive that I have started saying it during periods of joy.
One other dark day in Winter I had an idea. I would rip out the insides from an old but really quite good Windows XP machine, currently housed in what I call a "beige boy". I would then transplant the innards into Concept of Life!
Why? For fun.
No why really? For FUN
So that's how I created the world's least saleable item: an old but good computer dressed up in a modern but rubbish case. It works though, it works really well. You can have it for say £50, which includes the jolly cardboard box.
There was just one more treat in store. While admiring my bizarre hybrid, I read what it said on the front. Beady eyed people might be able to see in the photo but if you're not so great at seeing (like me) I transcribe it here.
I spent ages trying to make that mean something. All night it went through my head like a mantra. It seemed to mean something and yet that meaning eluded me.
So I thought I would throw it open to my readers. Anyone getting anything?
