    Taking some of those shots was interesting. I didn't want to be in any of the reflections so there were a couple times I sat the camera on the ground, set the timer and then jumped into the bushes. :p You can see in my 'in use' pictures that everything in the room is reflected off the sides so I thought it was important to find a good place to take pictures. It took a few days but I'm happy with the railroad bridge I found. :D
    Thanks! I'm already feeling the itch to start on something else!
    Yup, it just fit. I'm not sure how much it helped but it's staying where it is. :p Thanks for your help!
    :rock:
    Glad you like it!
    Thanks!

    To be honest the response I've received is much more than I expected. I'm very grateful for all your kind words, you all are awesome!

    Am I the only one who has noticed that you have no air flow going on? Everything inside that metal fram is going to cook if you don't add some holes for air to pass through.

    I was a little concerned with that but I've done some extensive testing. It does get warm, but there seems to be enough convection happening between the gaps to keep things in check. I am slightly concerned about the motherboard but the downward fan on the cooler should keep it from getting too hot. As for the SSD, it's a tank. I'm not worried about it. :p. According to my Kill-a-watt it only draws 15W at idle and 50W when loaded. There's not that much heat to get rid of in the first place.

    That's no moon; it's a triumph!

    I really love the second low-light shot where it looks almost portal-like.

    I think it took like four different photo shoots to get the lighting right. That's actually my basement :p. I'm really proud of some of those shots.
    That means a lot to me, I love your work!

    Yeah someone at OCN pointed that out to me earlier! I think the other two mods he picked are great, not sure I belong there in the same article :p.
