To show Aquasuite etc. It's not connected up yet but I had it on last night. I still have a bunch of wiring to finish and tidy

Changed to an actual camera. Still work to do, so not ordered lights and backdrop yet.



Sadly when I pulled the masking it took off some paint. I was really mad, then realised I had loads of touching up to do any way in areas I missed etc.



Still very annoying though. Wiring is now pretty much finished.

I think you should soften the lighting inside a little, because it completely drowned out the colour of your fittings. The red BP used was always a nice one.

Yeah, gotta get to that. Just needs dimming a bit tbh, it's way bright atm. I mean seriously it lights the house ffs.

Will take a break now (was at it til 2am, then up at 9 and been at it since) and then touch up the paint. I think it takes about 3 weeks to fully cure, and I put the tape on before it had. It only takes 24 hours to touch dry but yeah, it hadn't fully cured.

It's so nice not having any spinning hard drives. There's this eerie silence in here (I ran a Raptor, so you could always sorta feel it humming in your feet).

Turns out I had an issue with the clock. If you look at all of the pics before it went in it was much brighter. Fearing something was wrong (wiring) I popped the front (I can't remove it, it's now wired to the floor) and stuck my torch in. Screen went to full brightness. Eh?. So I removed the torch sure enough screen went dim.

*penny drops* it has a light sensor and dims at night. So to get around it I simply stuck an LED strip in there to feed it light.

Merry Christmas

So today I painted in the missing areas. I also made an IO cover as I totally forgot to do that and it looked like ass.

Tomorrow I want to try and make one more cover that I had an idea for on day one, but wasn't going to bother with because it was more aggro. Decided I may as well do it right, given all of the work I've put in.

Vega Devil 64 comes tomorrow, so hopefully I can button up the Triad and get it put to one side to go over to my mother's where it will become my away from home PC.
