20060110 - Carolyn is finally throwing Mist's case away - 100-0022 - glowing in the blacklight

This was the first computer case Carolyn ever bought. Her grandma had bought a 286 computer for the family in 1990. In 1993, Carolyn upgraded it, buying a used 486 motherboard from a friend. It would not fit into the 286 case, so she bought this one for $50. She named her computer Mist.


Over the years, Mist got upgraded many times, with many different components, acquiring some decoration along the way -- Spray-painted with gold and pink paint that glowed in the blacklight.


When Mist finally needed a new case to fit yet another motherboard, Carolyn did not have the heart to throw away the old case. She's such a pack-rat. Finally, in 2006, she decided it was time to let go. But of course, she had to take pictures to remember the case forever.
