    @Cheaps: you have three computers on your desk already? :eek: Pics or it didn't happen lol.
    I think the perspex plinth then is the best way to go :p You're the Zen master of the shiny plastic stuff, so so be easy peasy!

    :lol: thanks!:D

    @DragonOne - One thing you don't see on video of flame polishing is that flaws get enhanced by heating. You just don't get the same level of cleanness IMO.
    @Azayles - Bloo, 'Toad, The Ion PC, and a 21"CRT. -Strong desk!:hehe: -Also I thought this case was the Plexi plinth.
    @Sleepstreamer - SHHHH!:worried: Are you trying to jinx me? I bribe it with a cozy indoor corner, and lots of oil.

    If that case is the plinth, then you need to build another one to go on top :p!
    Must be hella strong desk. You have them all powered up at a time doing different things, or just on show?

    What's happened? I've been happily lurking watching this project and it's all gone quiet?! Hope you manage to get this build going again, be a shame to see it languish...

    Thanks guys.
    @jhbellsh - Sorry about that. I want to work on this too!!
    1. I got roped into another contest build. :duh:
    2. I'm swamped with real work.
    3. I'm also working on something else on the side.
    4. I have a squirrel that is turning my house into swiss cheese. It ignores traps, and has chowed down on enough rat poison to kill a human. The little sh*t should wear a cape!

    @Azayles - 'Toad models while Bloo renders. Ion is a coaster until I get a 4 port KVM that plays well with it's usb mouse.
    @MOJ - Not using something I have a use for drives me crazy.:hehe:

    Got a pesky squirrel problem? My parents had one once. It moved in to the structures between the outside roof and inside roof. They got rid of it by using their stereo system. Whenever they left for work, they turned up the volume and left it singing. In about a week the squirrel went nuts and left :thumb:

    Thanks!
    @Boxcar - Thanks for the link, but I don't think software-based is the way to go for me. I'd have to have the master rig on at all times, and I really don't want to add something like that to my CNC controller system. :hehe: I do know someone who could use a virtual 3-to-10-port setup. I'm sending them that link.
    @Javerh - The little turd chewed through a 2x6 flooring plank. When I capped that, it figured out it could bend the screen on an attic fan to get in. When I added a better screen over that, it worked it's way in through the heater exhaust. Since that was a one-way trip, It chewed holes in the eaves. It's doing some kind of Jackie Chan move to get on the roof from the eaves.
    @Djayness - What?
    @Bad Cancer - SILENCE!!!!!!:hehe:
    @Pimpin - :lol:

    So it wants to get there by any means necessary. You have to make it want to leave!

    @Bill - :lol:
    @Perplekks - HUSH!
    @Javerh - Believe me, I'm trying. I think all the tripping it's done from the rat poison has made it not care. In fact, it might like heavy metal now. :hehe:
    Naw, truthfully, it's only coming in at night to sleep. I can't cause it much discomfort without making us and the whole neighborhood lose sleep.

    Get a mean ass cat. Or a hound dog. Train it to eat squirrels and give it a jetpack.

    Or, get one of those cages exterminators use and put some...squirrel food (nuts?)...in it. Can't chew through 1/8" steel the little bugger! Ooo...and you can rig the thing to run a current through the cage. Toasty!
