    I used to live on a narrow boat with my mom when i was at high school which was about 4 miles away. So had to walk in too. Way too cold in the winter months.

    New Case!


    I moved to a new case!
    It looks amazing, but one of the byproducts of the move is that internal USB card reader is not working.
    Will post some pics as soon as I get it to work again.

    School horror stories: my dad attended a military academy in the early 40s. The bunks were made of iron. During winter it got so cold in the barracks that if you fell asleep touching any part of your cot or bunk your skin would stick to it. If you moved while asleep you ripped your skin off. True story, or so I've been told.

    Looks good Doc! I have been tossing the idea around of building a PC and maybe buying something like that would be a good starter kit to learn how to do it. At least then if I muck things up it won't a big loss.

    Great job, Doc. That's a pretty decent rig, especially for the price you paid. Well done.
