I do like playing but after its built it probably lingers a bit.... I suppose I'm more of a builder than a player.
If you build a frankenpanel, chances are I don't care for you as a person.

At first, working on it was a blast.  But then it got tedious, nothing would work/fit right, endless modificiations until it was perfect, bla bla bla.

But it's well worth the work once you start playing :).

i think when the fun starts to evaporate you are now 'working' on it instead of 'building' it.   Much more fun 'building' it - other's just like to play it.

I'm actually on my 3rd cabinet and I took parts from the first to build the second and parts from the second to build the third. I just love to build them, I rarely play at all.
