  1. Well here I go, time for me to build a new PC. But being the way I am, I can't build anything that's quite normal. Doe's anyone remember the Silver Boxes I found awhile back? I knew when I picked them up I'd have to come up with a good use for them, but what? Well here we go with what will become of the first one. I'll be using the one on the left which I have spent the past few days hand sanding the old finish off. Why? I like hand sanding, and I'm not totally refinishing the inside of the box to try and save the liner. Here is how the box looks so far. I've removed, and saved the liner for future reinstallation in the box. Here are a couple of photos of the box lid. This one shows the liner which will be a real pain to remove any further. This photo shows the original finish. Sorry about the bad picture but it shows how bad the finish was. The below photo shows some of the hardware which will be going into the build. I'll be using an AMD Ryzen 5 2400G 3.9 Max Boost, 3.6 GHz. Base, 4 Core 8 Thread Processor with Radeon RX Vega Graphics, along with a MSI B450M PRO-M2 Motherboard, a Samsung V-NAND SSD 970 EVO NVMe 250 GB M.2 Hard Drive for the OS, and 16GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000MHz Memory, along with a 1 TB Seagate Barracuda 32 MB Cache 7200 RPM Hard Drive for storage. But since this is all that I've got to work with, Hopefully this rig should satisfy my needs.
  2. As I stated in my PC build located in the link below I'll be building a Desk/Cabinet for the PC. I'll be repurposing a "White Clad" Ice Box type end table/night stand like the one below as the base for this Desk/Cabinet. The photo is of one listed on ebay, I have to go down to my storage tomorrow and get the one I have. It is in a bit rougher shape than the one in this photo. I'll be doing this up similar to a Secretary Desk with an upper section that will house the monitor. I'll be using parts from one of those Oak Toilet Toppers along with other bits and pieces along the way. I don't work from any plans, simply just wing it, and figure this will look good here, that will look good there etc. I've also got some real neat cast Brass Brackets that will get incorporated into this build. I've been working on what will be the top (Monitor) door along with the PC build to get this started. Here are a couple of photos of the door before I got started on it. It is the worst shape piece of this build, but it came from a junked "White Clad" cart, and matches the door on the "Ice Box" These are some really cheaply built doors in that the frames are simply attached to a 1/8" plywood back which also serves as the door panels. The veneer on this door is in real poor shape, but the plywood is still rather solid. Below are a few photos of the door as work progresses on it. This is an edge photo of the door you might be able to make out the plywood back. The frame members on these doors are not spliced together in any way, and I added braces to the rear side of the door to keep it stiff, and straight. the edges kept wanting to bend away from being straight with the other frame members. The door is looking much better then when I started with it. Almost half of the veneer has flaked away, and I'm not sure if I'll re veneer it, or cover it with some Plexiglass Mirror that I have. That's about it for today on this build. Until next time.

    Latest rework of the Rainmeter skin I've been working on. Now when you hover over the thermometer bar you get a ToolTip that tells you what it is sensing, & the °C. So far I've got CPU, GPU (1&2),& MB.

    My latest desktop. The screen image can be changed, it's a Rainmeter skin. So far I've got System Information, System Temps & Fan Speeds, and Network Information screens. The background wallpaper was created from several images I found on DeviantArt. I'm planning on making this desktop like a hidden object game.

    Windows 10 desktop created with two desktop backgrounds, and steampunk widgets from Lightquick web designs.
  6. Here's the start of a little project made from some scrap pieces of Oak I got from my friend Ron who passed away the 23rd of September. I'm sure Ron would have got a kick out of this project. It will end up being a test bed style computer case. The lower section is an old AT style case from the old 486, Pentium 1 days. I'll be using it for mounting my power supply, drives, etc.. Here's the Oak frame that will be replacing the old beige plastic front. It's not quite finished, but will give a hint of where this is headed. Front of frame. Rear of frame. Sliding door set in place.

    My latest desktop screenshot. The background was created using GIMP. There are also Yahoo! Widgets, & Rainmeter skins added. The temp monitors are skins I created to use with Rainmeter.

    Snip of a Rainmeter skin I am currently developing. Each "Thermometer" can be moved around separately, so they can be ganged together (side by side) or stacked vertically.

  11. I'm finally getting around to rebuilding my computer. This will not be a new build, as most of my parts are at least six years old. I'm simply going the "Steampunk" route with this rebuild. The computer will be built into this Art Deco desk made by the W. D. Allison Co. which made furniture for Doctors/Dentists offices. The W.D. Allison Co was located in Indianapolis Indiana. I'll be using a total of three Dell monitors. Two Model 1907FP's and a Model SP2008WFP. All 3 monitors were freebies that I got from my neighbor. The 1907FP's will be mounted portrait style, and slide behind the desk when not in use. The SP2008WFP will be housed behind the sideways rolling roll top. I'll have to build out the back of the lower section of the desk (behind the lower doors) to fit my motherboard/tray, and RAID drive enclosure that I'll be using. My motherboard is an Asus M3N72-D with an AMD Phenom II X4 940 (3.0 Ghz Quad Core) Black Edition Processor. I'll be using Thermaltake Orb coolers for the memory, and video cards, along with an Asus Black Knight CPU cooler. All of the coolers are copper finned, to go with the copper finned coolers on the Asus motherboard. The tray is from an old tower case, I'll be painting it black.
