    I already have a lot of stuff that I need, but I do need a PSU and hopefully a cheap large HDD. Oh, ya another 120 gig SATA would be nice too: RAID on my main rig would be lovely.

    Hey! Update time!! Oh, and sorry, I know that some pics are down (need to renew my hosting).

    [​IMG]
    My package came moday!

    [​IMG]
    Some gadgets. Left-Right: A SmartMedia case. A SD case. A Keypad/Hub/6-in-1 card reader.

    [​IMG]
    This is a CD filer if you will. Basically it sits in my file cabinet and holds CDs.

    [​IMG]
    The keyboard drawer.

    [​IMG]
    And installed.

    [​IMG]
    I also visited BestBuy and used my gift cards the other day and got this wire to hook up my rear speakers. I managed to use all of it on two speakers.... :eyebrow:

    [​IMG]
    Nothing exciting but just the connectors that came with the speaker cable.


    Hopefully soon I will have some semi final images. I am still aranging some stuff to my liking.

    Peace,
    Nick

    SmartMedia is notoriously sketchy by the way... I've had several cards die on me and become unrecognisable and unformattable by both Windows and my old digital camera. Just something to bear in mind :thumb:

    Strange. I have never had any problems with it and i wont be switching soon cuz my camera uses it. I have two 128MB cards and a 16MB card. Use them a lot no complications, but thanks for the heads up. I wont store anything valuable on them.

    Maybe I should have explained what I meant a bit more (I'm tired) :p. I wouldn't take a card formatted for a digital camera and use it in a card reader/writer. Doing this caused several cards to be "uninitialized" when plugged into my old Fuji camera. Windows will format a SmartMedia card to FAT12, which is apparently the filesystem required... no idea why it happened, but after doing some reading I came to the conclusion that SmartMedia is just very flaky :eyebrow:

    I moved over to an SD Kodak camera and would never use SmartMedia again. It's all relative though, like you said, depending on what you are storing.

    I really like this project. I would really like to do something like this to my room because its pretty cluttered but, it would be pretty useless considering I only have 1 running computer.

    Anyways, I really like what you have done with the room. Keep the updates coming. :)

    What kind of keypad is that? Can you just have the buttons be buttons or do they have to represent the keypad (ie, can I use the buttons in a game for chat keybinds and not have them be keypad 1, keypad 2)? Thanks.

    PEACE

    If I understand what you are asking, then yes. The software allows you to fully customize the keypad. Any button can have any number of functions assigned to it and a series of keystrokes is also possible.

    Finally an update!! Changed some stuff up--I am finally am starting to really like my setup.


    First though, my new toy!!

    [​IMG]
    I stopped at BestBuy today and came out with these!! :naughty:

    [​IMG]
    Now this is what under my desk looks like now. A little different. I took out the old printer stand(just didnt fit right). It isnt perfect yet, but getting there. I would like to find a shelf for the printer.

    [​IMG]
    I also got this monitor arm for free (I LOVE working at a science center!). My media PC's monitor and (new) keyboard are on it. It is nice cuz it forms a nicely shaped workcenter, buyt I can push it out of the way.

    [​IMG]
    My main deskspace rearranged. There is the DVD player on the left with my paper baskets. Then the two LCDs and under the right one a keyboard drawer.

    [​IMG]
    This is what I use the drawer for, I will prolly put something else there instead of the CDs, but I like being able to get the mixer thing out of the way.

    [​IMG]
    I moved my filing rack over to where the trash can was and also fixed up a keyboard drawer to act a a slid out shelf, and it works well.

    [​IMG]
    The filing rack out.


    This project is starting to come to a close, but not quite yet. I do plan on painting all of the beige stuff when it gets warmer and I have more time. I think black will be nice. (Did I hear a sigh of relief).

    Well its off to bed.

    Peace,
    Nick
