Battleship Laptop

Who cares if you lost all the pegs?

there is half a Battleship boardgame that has been sitting around my house for as long as i can remember. as far as i know, the other half has disappeared forever. however, i do not want to waste a perfectly good little toy, so i was thinking: why not crack it open, throw in a bunch of hardware, and turn it into a little p2 laptop? then i realised that i have neither the expertise nor the parts to do so, so i was wondering if the game company, or some geek consortium out there would be able to do this. i know i'd buy one, and the kitsch value alone would guarantee steady sales amongst other geeks.

       Well, I've heard of a guy who put his desktop in a Corn Flakes brown box, so anything's possible. It wouldn't be too sturdy, but it'll certainly make a nice conversation piece at your next board meeting.   

       P.S. I remember always losing pegs through the game's folding hinge, where pegs could come in and fall out through three 'vents' on the bottom of the apparatus. Why did they design it like that?

       Does anyone play "Internet Battleships"? I mean does it exist? The sounds could be programmed, explosions could be visual etc. Could be fun.
