    Nice, a lady in this forum - that is different

    Cool photoshop work also - I had to look a few times after I read it was fake to notice. I hope you post some pics when you are done - looks like it will be a good fit.

    What's a brush-tool? The only problem is it's different in real life. There's buttons on the bottom that have to be moved somewhere and things have to be mounted and all.

    Yeah, when women start joining you know it's not a leet geek thing anymore. Same thing happened to computers a few years ago. It all just went to hell.

    a brush-tool...i have this little wacom drawing pad that interfaces with my computer and allows me to draw and paint directly in the computer, and it's pressure sensitive. but what i was really saying is that i was born to create artistic stuff...and since ths is a techie age, it's not just a brush anymore - it's a brush-tool. [i guess it would make more sense if you use photosop, but then again, it might.]

    that's kind of what i was getting at, i just couldn't say it.

    There's buttons on the bottom that have to be moved somewhere and things have to be mounted and all.
    i want those buttons gone.i want the interface to look like this. [the above foto]. i'll start a new thread once i get my lilliput - i want to know how to remove the buttons and place them on their own interface [i want to remove the cigarrette ashtray and place the lilliput buttons and led's to signal the status of my comp.]

    EDIT: [rereads her reply] man thats a lot of wants

    I can almost manage the rectangle-tool. hehe. I think you should download frodoplayer and design your own skin for it for fun!

    You don't really need all the buttons for the lilliput. Most of us just have access to the power button or have it automatically turn on. I have the power button and the little remote thing on the side so if I need to make any adjustments I just grab the remote, which is almost never.

    Saikano,

    U may have difficulty if you want to re-arange the Lilliput buttons since they are surface mount - as are the LEDs. The buttons are easy to break when removing , but I have done it (broke half of them though - different project). I would not even try to remove the leds though since I would just end up melting em. The route I chose to take was to use the remote. I just re-located the IR sensor to the bezel and made a window - works great, and there are no buttons. The button panel is tucked behind the screen. I dropped in some pics below.

    Batman's got some good pics too on page 3. With the install and the zip ties to hold the board in. I soldered wires to the power button too, and then one day I yanked it too hard and pulled up about 1/2 an inch of trace. Ouch! Here's the back of mine with the button board strapped to the back diagonally.

    hmm, saikano's new avatar is seriously sexy. I like!
