Just to be clear I was talking about feeding the cable through some kind of cord....you know like the cord on an iron.

I did get what you mean. I haven't explained it fully. I had this thought as well but maybe didn’t chose the right material, so I am opened to any suggestions. I made few mistakes when bought the first cable wrap. First of all I ordered the sample that is 50cm long, simply not long enough. Secondly the colour on the ebay photo was more like light brown that was good to me. It was described as cream but what I received was bright yellow. Seller wasn’t helpful at all so I let it go. The most important thing is that the one I tried is not flexible enough to feed the connector (either end) through without damaging the wrap. Since the mouse was pretty much done at this point I decided to work on the computer. Let me know if you have any suggestions that are light brown/cream and can be installed without cutting the cable or remove pins from the mouse pcb connector.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Puts the woodgrain 486 to shame! Do you want to tweet him about it or shall I? ;)

Absolutely mindblowing work if you ask me. Really this deserves much more than just a post on social media. A full Wired article or whichever appropriate publication(s!) usually covers these sort of things. Now if only America paid more interest to one of their own rather than yet another NES case mod. (Hi to the USA enthusiasts out there by the way. We know you're around and about; just not in very great numbers!)

Hi All,

Thanks for the kind words, really appreciated. It was a real fun project to do for sure. To be honest I didn't know how everyone else would take it though.

Yes, this new free website is off for 1 hour, which I wasn't aware of before registered. I'm trying to find the best solution to host my Atari related stuff. I have a kind offer so might move it there. But as it is now, it's sleeping from midnight for an hour (UK time).
