From the submitter:
"I got a new big monitor and I realized that keeping the laptop on the table took too much space. So I made a "case" to keep it vertical and under the table until I'll put together a desktop system."
"It should be noted that this happened over a period of two years. One thing would break and we'd throw together a cheap fix. The other day I stumbled across this website with my girlfriend and was laughing pretty hard when BAM... looked down and instant irony!"
