Custom cases are a lot like hot rods, except for computer geeks. Some may have the super-charged (overclocked) engine and some serious performance hardware, but what will first grab someone's attention is a sharp appearance.

    For the second time I had the chance to attend Akademy, this time in cold and rainy La Coruña. It has been a week of interesting talks, good food (except for one Tortilla incident), and hacking.
