This is pretty good so I thought I would share it in case you all hadn't seen it already.

No ? I'm trying to imagine what sort of computer would have a stained-glass case. Maybe a big desk-top ? Univac ? ENIAC ? Colossus ? Babbage Difference Engine ? A really fancy abacus ?

When novelists do this they call it steampunk.

Wow. So, the history of steampunk is rooted in a nineteenth-century futurism ?

I suppose Jules Verne et al are a part of this story ? Avant-garde becomes retro, a century or more later . . .

She made a desk top computer case out of mahogany and the sides are stained glass and of course they open.

The stained glass panels are on the sides, and wood doors open at the front ?

Here's a desk-top CPU case: http://www.techeblog.com/index.php/tech-gadget/incredible-stained-glass-pc-case

And there are some interesting ones, here, including steam-punk pieces:

Similar to that. The front has wood spacing like the high back chairs and just the sides have the stained glass. Top and bottom are solid mahogany. https://i.imgur.com/MNn7N7j.jpg?1

Here is another one, except this is a Usonian. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/329748003937541296/

Ah, there it is. I like it; the feet are good too.

The second one seems to bridge Prairie and Usonian. I didn't know people were putting their CPUs on display . . . as I'm a Mac user ?

That is because you don't ever have to open your computer up to work on it.... it just works like it is supposed too. All I have anymore is Mac. Got tired of replacing things every 2 years.

I have almost none of my data in folders; I just stack stuff up in Documents, iPhoto, etc. A friend says he thinks "most people do that."

I picture my computer having to work harder to find things. There is in fact some delay, especially in posting images to my two Documents libraries when exported there from iPhoto: it can take two minutes or more for files to show up in Documents !

When it's finally time to upgrade from my 2012 Mac mini to the next hardware, should I adopt a better regimen ?

I wouldn't call this steampunk ; too modern, it's not the style of the late 19th century either. It's between very late steampunk and very early dieselpunk, your call!
