Sorry been at work all day. Anyway, the guitars are nothing, that sword weighs atleast 30lbs. I got it for 15 bucks at a Flea Market. The guy had to get rid of it because of kids but it is unreal. It reminds me of a sword from Highlander :w00t: . That being said, I love my computers too much to hurt them.  :o Thanks

A 'headless' machine is just a machine with no keyboard, mouse or monitor attached, which you access over the network only. Guess you could say it has no arms or legs either. :thumbsup:
