He claimed to have 18" of naked rounded cable, but I was skeptical

Mmm... clear, shielded, rounded cables.

$19 for two, including shipping.

Pros:
Improved air flow
Neat (in both senses of the word)
Secret super coolness factor

Cons:
Money better spent on other things
Coolness factor a super secret

Air flow is more important that super secret coolness. I'll probably just fold the IDE I already have with a bit of electrical tape.

She's really going through with it

you set my soul, and possibly my coffee table, on fire
Ow. I just remembered why I thought stowing the monitor in a less-than-accessable place might not be such a great idea in the long run.

Eh, spines are over-rated, anyway.

I may be in pain, but my monitor is DEAD SEXY!

Computer-- CHECK
Monitor-- CHECK
KB & Mouse-- SOON-TO-BE-CHECK
Fire Extinguisher-- CHECK
Mike's Hard Lemonade-- CHECK
Cat-- NOWHERE TO BE SEEN-- CHECK

OK. I'm going to disconnect my current KB and mouse (hope I don't lose 'em), plug 'em into the new system and attempt to POWER THIS BAYBEE UP.

Prayers, good thoughts, and liberally-applied asbestos are all greatly appreciated.
