I know the spgstore ships via the post office so I'd think they could ship to the UK perhaps?

Interesting I'll look into that - Thanks

Has anyone else from the UK purchased from the sgpstore & if so what did they charge for shipping?

Default psycheDellic science skin gonna grab 'em! - 09-01-2009, 04:36 AM

I wanted to experiment with a skin, never having tried it before, and also wanted to kinda shake up the somewhat stodgy government research community I interact with...

So, when I saw this one at DecalGirl I just had to have it!!

Its proving a great way get some attention, and then they are mesmerized by my Mini while I get to take the floor and advance my ideas! Works like a charm so far... Especially when I tether my Mini to the internet through my Palm Pre and download full text PDF articles from scientific journals and bring up the references to discuss them in real time.









Yeah... you may think its garish (when I emailed her the pics, my sister was horrified at the thought of me in public with it). But believe me, 'round here we need some action!

I am not sure how long it will last, but I am enjoying it right now and kinda feel like I have flashed back to my long-gone Trapper Keeper days.

I will prolly keep it for a while, then move to a clean, austere Mac one when I take the Hackintosh plunge. But likely next year when I attend big research conference I will get this PsycheDelic Science Skin on again for fun.

The skinz are so much fun, and at ~16 dollars shipped I can change fairly frequently.

If you look close at the center circle of the skin that's left on the sheet you'll see that there is a little ring that corresponds to the silver circle around the word Dell. You'll also see there is a little cutout for the word Dell. If you skip those you can add a carbon fiber bit to cover up the red part of the Dell logo leaving the silver parts (the ring and the Dell text/logo) to show through.

Just in case you didn't notice that.
