I was about a decade ago when I saw an ad for the e-holster. At the time, I was stuffing my pockets with a PDA, cell phone, keys, etc. and really need a better way of carrying all of these gadgets. The e-holster was just right.
I got my first one in 2001 and have worn one ever since. I have had to buy new modules over the years to accommodate the different gadgets. Over the past year, I have replaced all of the components.

The leather shoulder holster had started to show it's age, so this time I went with the nylon version. It also has loops for wired headsets, where the leather one did not. And the Android phone and new eye glass case size required the purchase of new case modules (leather).
In my Geek Tips article outlining my Beta test of Microsoft Windows 7, I needed a computer to install it on. What I built is sweet, specification wise, but the case steals the show. Still photos do not do this case justice, so here's a video. Check out the Geeks in Phoenix Windows 7 test system inside the Antec Skeleton!
As many of you know, I'm not your 'pocket-protector' type of geek. For years I have been asked, "Is that a holster you're wearing?"
Actually, it's a e-Holster Modular Shoulder Holster Case System.
I found that I could carry everything I normally would stuff into my pockets, without getting the 'clown pants' look (over-stuffed pockets). This is my current configuration, as these are modular components.
Here are the pictures of my daughter's finished customized computer case.
The face is RUST-OLEUM's American Accents 'Sierra' Stone textured finish. The top and sides are RUST-OLEUM's Chalkboard specialty paint.
Pretty sweet, Brittany! Can't wait to see how you decorate it with chalk.
So what makes you a ‘Geek’? Over at Geeks in Phoenix, we define a ‘Geek’ as “… one who is perceived to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of intellectuality, electronics, gaming, etc”. I want to hear about the three days strait you spent coding, gaming, etc. I want you to post it. Just click the 'Comments' link below.
