The original star wars trilogy told by a girl who has not seen the three movies in their entirety – funny vid as well.
Star Wars as seen by a three year old. “Don’t talk back to Dark Vader – he’ll get ya!“
Ages ago I uploaded my Galaga CPO to the localarcade site [Update: moved to arcadeartlibrary] to see if anyone else would like it. It didn’t appear on the site for ages and I had forgotten all about it. Today I was searching for some inspiration for “Galaga Side Art” in Google and up pops my CPO.
And the one person that rated it gave it a 5 out of 5. Yay! 🙂
Yeah yeah – small things amuse small minds…
I had a big session in the garage the other day and managed to get the top mounted, with the top shelf and speaker shelf attached.
I also managed to get a grill attached to the rear of the base to allow a little bit of air flow for the PC (and keep out little fingers, and cats).
I’ve have managed to get the base door attached (finally). I was originally intending to use hinges you find in your kitchen cupboard, but was having some dramas with them, so I fell back to using steel piano hinge. Really glad I did as it has worked better than I thought. It looks nice and is really sturdy.
Here is what I’ve got so far:
Here is a view of the mounting bolts, from the outside and inside:
The mounting bolts are 10mm thick so for the countersinking I had to resort to using my router as my standard countersinking bits were not deep/wide enough. With six of these one each side the left and right panels are not going anywhere.
I had to cut the speaker wires from the tv to mount the TV in the cabinet. I am planning on rigging up some kind of quick disconnect so that if I ever need to remove the top I don’t need to cut and resolder the speaker wires again.
A few years ago I got the skydiving bug. Did nearly 30 jumps. Never got my A-licence though. I have always been fascinated by wingsuits. Today I watched a vid of a bunch of crazy skydivers skiing off cliffs in Norway with wingsuits.
This was not normal wingsuit action. Rather than flying away from the cliff-face, these guys are flying alongside the face, buzzing along only metres above the roads that wind down the mountain. You have to see it to believe it.
Cleaned up the garage – now have enough room to move about in there. Decided I’d better get cracking on the top half of the mame cabinet. Here is a pic of one of the top sides going through a test mounting.
I used some tiny corner braces to hang the top sides on the base so I could step away and get an idea of how it will really look.
