Has anyone built a sous vide cooker?

I'm building one with an old crock pot, a PID temp controller, and thermocouple ($40 total cost). I was wondering if anyone has done this and if so, how did you like it. I'm having trouble getting the controller hooked up correctly but once I figure it out, I think I'm going to attempt building my own immersion circulator that will fit in a 40 qt. cooler.

So has anyone tried this?
