Well I finally got my O2...in a million pieces

I want to cry. Seriously. I just got my O2, and it's damaged beyond belief :( I was so looking forward to it, and it's not like you can get an O2

No pic attached? I've a spare system in the UK I'm willing to sell. Are the skins broken?

I don't know what all is broken. The skins are definitely shattered. I e-mailed the seller to see what they want to do about this.

It is a bummer, if you were close, I'd give you a new case.
[edit] Unsure that came out right!

My condolences, friend. That's a sad sight. Not to worry, though. You can probably get a non-working donor box on the cheap and swap the skins. Still it does suck! Freakin' shipper. The box looks like it was thrown around and drop kicked. Daayum!

Ugh that blows dude. My O2 has a shattered base but the skins are good.

If you find a non working O2 nearby then I need the base, if your base is intact or not.

I was planning on buying an O2 off eBay in the near future...but now I'm scared. Haven't seen shattering like that since FedEx destroyed one of my Macs. :(

Well, the seller got back to me and refunded the cost for the system and shipping. It works. It has a 180Mhz R5k with 160MB of ram. Needs a drive, as y'all know. But it's fully functioning. Just needs skins.

Sorry, Raion bud, the base is totally shattered. In fact, when I pulled the system out of the box, there were shards of unhappy blue O2 entrails at the bottom.

My O2 survived pretty intact, see my youtube channel here:



I know my production value is ass as is my camera work. This is only done because I decided to give it a try. I'll probably get better at this in the future once I get a DSLR I can shoot with.

Not as close to a million as I expected. I would actually wonder if superglue could work. If it doesn't, maybe consider gluing it together with something more visible and then following this thread: viewtopic.php?t=16725453 . If it can't look original, at least make it look cool. You can still buy another skin, just thinking of uses for the old one.
