Strap looks good, you using a shoe lace? The bungees look good too, but its hard to tell from pic, is that "wire" for the hook strong?

Oggy
04-01-2010, 02:01 PM
the hook's are plastic coated paper clips, i can hang a 3 pound weight on them

Oggy
04-01-2010, 02:03 PM
the strap is a shoe lace, it's just a spare one i had around, my next one will be thinner and yellow or orange

The Stray Cat
04-01-2010, 02:10 PM
I found that some of the "boot" shoelaces work best. I folded the end over and glued it, then wrapped string around the fold leaving just small "scale" loop. 3 pounds on a paper clip, that's good!

Reminds me, seeing the other pc thread, what happened to yours Rag? did you get it running the way it was intended?

Ragnarok
04-02-2010, 11:02 AM
Yup. Decided to do some radical changes to the physicality of it. I've decided to rackmount it. The particular rackmount case I originally wanted is pretty inexpensive, but the shipping more than triples its price. So I started thinking (my first mistake), "I'm a box ninja. Why couldn't I simply build dat sucka mah-seff?" So that's what I'm doing. I'll be doing a re-case of my PS3 at the same time. Won't be getting one of those refurb Rev 1s like I originally planned (I can't afford it), so I have figured out an interesting way of integrating my old PS2 into the same chassis as the rackmounted PS3. :D

THE_JOKER
04-02-2010, 11:09 AM
Sounds complicated an yet intriguing, also after seeing pics of your work previously you posted, i cant wait to see the outcome! what plan you got for keeping the PS3 cool in the box?

Ragnarok
04-02-2010, 12:30 PM
A pair of 80mm or 92mm fans placed up front and powered by one of the two USB ports in addition to the onboard units. The second USB port will be running a 4-port hub integrated into the face of the rack module, so I'm actually gaining USB ports instead of losing them. :nice:

The latest PS2s run really cool so I won't have to add any extra cooling measures.

THE_JOKER
04-02-2010, 12:36 PM
Sounds cool Rag! i wanna see pics soon as possible :excited:

Ragnarok
04-02-2010, 12:45 PM
Probably in May is when I should have something resembling "done." Could be earlier, though. :nice: I'd like to have my rack cabinet about the same time (I won't be building that) and that'll probably be reaching an even grand after shipping. :nono: That part may have to wait. :(

Here's the rack unit I want…
http://www.skbcases.com/music/products/proddetail.php?f=&id=131&o=&offset=1&c=116&s=80
It has shock-absorbing suspensors that isolate the rack cage from any roughhousing the outer part of the case experiences. About $610 or so, but I expect to pay at least another $200 to get it up here to Hoth. This particular model is 16U. My Rackintosh™ will take up six, my RackStation™ will take up three, and my security drawer will be another six. That leaves me only three spaces to stow my little Korg synth module (1U) and possibly an audio interface and a power conditioner (1U ea.).

I might just get another 6U non-shock/regular-depth rack case for my synth, audio interface, etc. and permanently bolt it to the big case and use that remaining 3U for something else. Maybe my security drawer can be taller or something. I'm sure I'll fill it up in quick order.

I got to play golf today. Our team shot an 4 under which I thought was respectable with 30mph winds. After that, I went and picked up some pictures of my daughter and two doors down was a bike shop. I was wanting to look at some Electra cruisers, but they did not have any. He did show me a 3 speed Haro cruiser that was pretty bad arse.

There's Sea Galley, Long John Silver's, Skipper's, etc. There isn't a Long John up here in AK, and I think all of the Skipper's went out of business up here, too (I could be wrong, but I haven't seen any for a long time). I think it depends on who you talk to. I haven't eaten at any of them. The only fish places I've eaten at were local non-franchise resturaunts. The ultimate is Beer Battered Halibut. :drool: The best I've ever had was some my oldest brother made a while back. All of the alcohol is burned off in the cooking process, so a non-drinker such as myself is in the clear. Any kind of battered or breaded white fish is killer stuff. Cod, rockfish, pollock, etc.

it's a touring car chassis, he paid the right price for 1 in fair condition, but the chassis is broken, shock mounts bust, prop shaft has had it, lower wish bones are bust, ect...

short story for you from about 10 years ago.

i was driving down the A610 near eastwood about 3am, the road is raised up with steep slopes either side.

as i'm driving along, a team of 8 horses pulling an old fashioned cariage ran across the road in front of me, there is no way a real horse could get up the slope onto the road, that one was only a little freaky

Oggy
04-08-2010, 12:45 PM
another story for you.

i was driving home from a friends house around midnight.

i looked in my rear view mirror and saw a man sat on my back seat looking at me, i looked forward to see where i was going and when i looked back in the mirror the guy was still there, so i turned my head to look behind me where he's sat, and no one was there, i look back in the mirror and see nothing.

when i got home i parked the car and never drove it again, i was buying and selling cars at the time, so i had a few to choose from

and no i never told the buyer of the car what i had seen

I used to go stay with my Great Grandma as a kid, my cousin lived in the same house but they had turned the house in two separate sections. My great Grandfather had passed long before I was born and my cousin was three years younger than I. One day when we were playing in his room, we heard footsteps on the stairs and a creak of the door, my cousin instantly looked up and said, is that you Grandpa?

Hey Fellas whats up? FInally got me PC back to working. Anyone ever get those viruses that are antivirus fakes. Got one at work somehow.

Anyway, Don't have any pics or anything, but the story I told before about my cousin and I. My great gram told me a story that in the same house when my Grandpa was younger he'd sit in front of his father(my great grandpa) in his rocking chair and talk. So story goes a few months after great gramps passed, my grandpa was sitting in front of the rocking chair, the rocking chair was moving, and my great gram says I asked him what he was doing and he said talking to Dad.

Rock's weekly movie review..

Took the kids to see "How to Train Your Dragon" it was probably one of the best animated films I've seen in awhile. I saw the 2-D version not the 3-D, but the animation was incredible, the storyline was great, and the characters were very well developed. Definitely a blu ray must have when it's released! I give 2 thumbs up and a side of Bacon :nice::nice::bacondance:

Awesome to hear. I've been wanting to see it and hoped that it was decent. I'll put it on my "Must Buy NAOW!" list. Hopefully the home video release won't be too far down the pike.

I had a virus that looked identical to the windows security centre.

Seen a preview on the tv of that dragon one, looked quite funny, not sure on all this 3D matter, an i hear 3D TV is coming too??? they mean you have to wear them multicolor specs or is like actually going to project in 3D i have no idea.

sonys new 3d tv is billed for release this year. it comes with 2 pairs of glasses, and if you want more theyre £80 a pop. theyre not multicoloured, the screen puts out the same image twice but overlaps them, then the glasses pull both images together to make it appear 3d.
was quite funny, i went with my gf's family to the imax 3d cinema in birmingham, and at the end theres a bin for the glasses to go in (remember theyre £80) and a load of people had put them in the regular rubbish bin.
they had the advert for the dragon film in 3d, i havent seen it all but it did look great and my dad says the 3d animation in the full film is brilliant too.

I might watch P & F if someone happens to bring it over, but I'm not going to buy it sight unseen. The last traditional animation Disney produced that I enjoyed was Lilo and Stitch. :D

On that 3D TV stuff, wait until they have the glasses-free tech perfected and encheapened. It is coming, but you'll have to be patient. I already wear glasses 24/7, and I don't feel like having to don another pair just to watch a flipping movie.

Okay, I picked up Dido's most recent CD yesterday, Safe Trip Home (not that recent, I guess…© 2008). Sorta disappointed yet not really yet kinda really. I thought her first and second albums was awesome, but this one…I dunno. There are about three tracks that are flat-out killer (Grafton Street, It Comes and it Goes, and The Day Before the Day), but I didn't find the rest to be very inspiring. The previous albums had awesome finale numbers, but this one sort of plodded along without much interest. In fact, the most bizarre thing about it is where the next-to-last and last songs' separation actually seems to happen at about the last 48 seconds of that next-to-last song. Which is to say that the first 48 to 50 seconds of the final track is the previous one still going before the actual last song starts. It's weird, and I don't think it was intentional. I still love her voice and artistic style, so it's all good. :nice: Hope to maybe get Imogen Heap's newest next week.

That's one heck of a case. :nice: Lian-Li's always made awesome cases. And that PSU is the exact same one that I have. :D

I'd love to go SSD on my rig for the sake of speed, small physical size, and low heat and low noise, but the cost associated with them is beyond my means at this point. Once they get the cost down and the capacities up they'll be as ubiquitous as traditional HDs are now.

It's almost sickening how quickly technology improves. As of 12 months ago, when I got my computer, it was the top of the line, or at least close to it. Now pretty much every entry-level gaming rig I see can beat the snot out of it. 3.2GHz quad-core, 8 gigs of RAM, 1.5TB in combined drive space, dual nVidia 9800GTX 512MB running SLi... Now it's just an 'ok' machine. Nothing anyone is impressed with anymore. Sure, all the green lights and fancy peripherals make it look impressive, and the 24" and 20" monitors are a nice touch, but I'm definitely wanting to upgrade a few things already.


And I say give it 3 years, maybe 5, tops, and SSDs will be the norm rather than the fancy, expensive option and standard plate-drives will be hard to come by.

Back to the PC, best use for them in my opinion is for racing/driving games, i got that G25 wheel ages ago an used to be hooked on test drive unlimited for it, though i couldn't find any other open world games like it so kinda drifted away from the PC after that. I see though that the wheel also works on PS3 so i wish the people behind Gran Turismo would just get on with it :lol:

Just sent my tax form off this mow-nin', now I'm going to spend the next week (evenings) weeding my RC garden. I'm getting rid of everything EXCEPT: parts for my Hercules project; parts for my perpetually-I'll-get-to-it-sometime ELST project. Probably about it. I also have some old Double Dare tires/wheels that I'm on the fence about. They look great and don't have any dry-rot. Dunno if they'll go.

Later this year I hope to grab me an LST2 or LST-XXL, gut it, drop BL power into it…maybe convert the rear end to a solid axle so it's a front IS/rear solid. Could be cool. I'd use my CEN Genesis tires/rims on it with my old Terra Crusher bodies. Haven't seen a large MT body that looks good for several years. What's the frack is the deal, Proline/Parma/HPI? :nono: The closest thing to attractive I've seen would be the HPI El Camino SS.

I just can't bear to see all of it get scratched up and I decided to hold off on the scrambler body until I get a new phone. I have some aluminum from a clipboard that I will use as the base material. I just need to go to TSC and pick up some aluminum angle to mount the bed to the frame. It won't look truggy at all.
