    My RasPi camera cable came loose and I lost the picture. Trying to reseat the cable without opening the BigBox is very difficult and not recommended. So, I had to take the bottom off.
    Guess what I forgot to do!

    Ouch... The bottom of my BB has a large yellow sticker right next to the screws to undo the base struts reminding me to remove the SD card because I'm sure otherwise I'd have done the same at least once.

    Ouch indeed (and thanks for sharing). Glad you mentioned it... Big sticker to remember it's there seems to be a good option...

    Hope you didn't lose much...

    That's a good idea for some, but there are others (i.e. myself), who don't like to have parts like that outside the main frame. Some kind of hatch / drawer to more easily access it would be handy though.

    I did this exact same thing. Sticker to remind sounds like a good idea.

    Great idea. That's going to happen for me.
