    Tried to fire computer on and it only gives continous short beeps, no post screen at all. :(

    I had to store it in the cold basement for some days, it mighted to do some damage.
    Memory problem, what do you think?

    Your motherboard manual should tell you what the beeps mean, storing the PC
    in a cold environment should be no problem, as long as it's dry. ;)

    Manual doesn't say anything about beep codes.

    Weird problem as it keeps the same beep no matter what component i take out.
    It seems it might be mb what's taken some damage.

    The manual wont, but the BIOS developer will. For example, DFI didn't have anything but Phoenix did.

    I will give a new try tomorrow. I replaced bios battery, if that doesn't help i will try some different components.

    I tried to upload some pictures to my bit-techs profile, that wasn't succesfull:

    [​IMG]

    So i'll have to use imageshack or something instead. Pictures coming later...

    I welded snakes together and did some bendings with hammer:

    [​IMG]

    Welded parts together with tig:

    [​IMG]

    After some serious sanding and polishing i got some shiny parts:

    [​IMG]

    .. and another view:

    [​IMG]

    Did some drawings:

    [​IMG]

    Cutted the part with corner grinder, did some sanding and welding, again with the tig:

    [​IMG]

    Bended some 3mm tig-welding rods:

    [​IMG]

    Welded those rods together and twisted:

    [​IMG]

    Part is going to be placed there:

    [​IMG]

    Allthought its still unfinished. I just ran out of daylight, so more coming later on this week...

    Thanks for watching. :)

    Thanks mate, Kris Sword actually was in my mind when making it, i just wanted to make bigger curves.

    Its going to be holded like this:

    [​IMG]

    Can be used in both hands, no matter if you are left or right handed.

    Thanks mate, i like that picture too. It should look better when its polished and carved.

    It might be my violent mind, but i just wanted to do something sharp. :D

    I welded one cutted bolt top of the handle to be able to make a spike:

    [​IMG]

    Did some shaping:

    [​IMG]

    Welded twisted handle, that was actually quite tricky job, but i was satisfied to the result:

    [​IMG]

    More shaping, sanding and polishing:

    [​IMG]

    And nearly done:

    [​IMG]

    I say nearly, because i might do some carvings to it.

    I have to say that i have to be satisfied for the result, allthought this is my first this kind of dagger what i have done.

    Thanks for watching, i hope you liked. :)

    Thanks St3ph!

    I forgot to give some kudos for my working mate L33PU:

    [​IMG]

    ^ Helped me alot with making this case, allthought two hands is rarely enough. Thanks mate!



    Dagger is going to be part of the table, i had to take it for some temporally use:

    [​IMG]

    My fiancé has four kids and everyone of them wanted to have it, so now it stays safe until its attached to table. :D

    You might remember that table looks little boring atm:

    [​IMG]

    (bad picture, sorry ^)

    I'm going to make this kind of snakes for the "feets":

    [​IMG]

    (and the picture quality gets even worse, i'm truly shamed about that)

    Snakes are going to hold shelf and the "dagger" lies in the center of it.

    I hope you understanded what i just said, or even half of my intentions. :hehe:

    Thanks for watching!

    Ps. Memory was faulty, i loaned a pair of rams for my friend and now it boots without any problems. Not a big deal actually, my intention was to buy 2x2gb sticks anyway.

    I think i'm going to take some nice pair ocz mems with nice heatspreaders. :thumb:

    Dumped the "Horse". It actually didn't fit for the theme at all.

    Did some cuttings and bendings:

    [​IMG]

    Cutted another part:

    [​IMG]

    And another with some bendings done with my diy bending pliers.

    [​IMG]

    This part supposed to work as an airguide too:

    After welding, straightening and smoothing i did one little bend more:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Should look neat when polished to mirror.

    Weather today in center Finland:

    [​IMG]

    :duh:

    Thanks for watching.

    That's a really nice view even if it is cold. If you took that picture here, there would be four gas stations, a Wall Mart, and several dumpsters in the shot.
    I'm curious to see what you have planned with the side panel.
