    Also ordered myself a hot-swap PCB kit that I am very excited to assemble! Hopefully shipping does not take to long.

    Ahh I see, hopefully you can sort that out and post into the OS.
     
    It's actually not that hard, the most time consuming part so far was sourcing parts, really all you need is a PCB (hot swap or solder), keyboard case, mounting plate, switches, keycaps, and that's about it. It would be pretty easy for you haha. 
     
    @Eschew has a great post on this, it goes in great detail and covers everything you could possibly need to know.
     
    Yeah they definitely screwed themselves over. Yeah playing around with the hardware is very fun, I've gotten really into it over the past 2 years.

    Hi all, I mentioned I was going to throw up a post on my racing/flight sim arcade from a Crazy Taxi sit down. This has been painted red, hypermarquee installed. All marquees are custom. Dashboard was hand molded. Fold in flightsick. 5 spot force feedback using simxperience program. Custom buttons for stream deck. Side lcds fold to side and can be played using retropie after switching source. Lots of other stuff. I did beat outrun sp in the video. Just barely.

    Could always crack it open and give it a look but I know the feeling. I have an old Compaq Portable that is at this point mainly a show piece.
     
    I picked this up a week or so ago and been cleaning it up... Ibm pc 365 with a pentium pro 180.
     
    Got it cleaned up and painted the bare metal chassis in some primer grey as there was some pretty good staining I couldn't get rid of. Won't power on from the motherboard though I have to jump the trigger on the psu but it does power on and I get post beeps at least so a few issues to sort out. Totally stoked though I've wanted a ppro for years so very excited to finally add one to the collection 😁

    New addition to my setup:
    A Dell poweredge R510 server!
    I'm gonna use this box to learn a bit more about VM's. It's rocking dual Xeon L5640's for a total of 24 threads. And 32GB of registered ECC ram.
    Not the very best, but definitely enough to run some VM's!

    Once upon a time I used to work in a print shop, as in spent more than half my day there. Nowadays things are different, I spend 90% of my day at home working, smoking, sleeping & repeating. Lately I've taken it upon myself to spruce up the home office a bit so I'm not staring at a white wall all day. My setup consists of a Lenova 15" i7 laptop, 2014ish Mac Mini with desperately underwhelming specs & most importantly a DeLonghi espresso maker. Enough to do all my design / pre-press work along with keeping me awake all day. Next up 3D printer then a new PC

    Yes it probably would, these are highly unlikely scenarios to begin with I wouldn't worry that much.

    If you use blender often then it's more justifiable, but unless you use it very often it would not be necessary. But for gaming it will make no difference.

    Here's mine. Set up in a spare spare bedroom. It's been updated a lot since this picture. Posters and stuff all over the wall, guitars hung up. Got tired of the giant case and RGB so going to step down to ITX, just waiting on parts to show up at the house. Specs are in signature.

    I think I created a post on this once but last year my dad found his first computer, the Osborne 1. It was the first commercially successful portable microcomputer, and when I say 'portable' and 'microcomputer' I mean it's nearly the size of an ATX Mid-tower. Back when my dad got this in 1982 it cost nearly $3,000cad. With inflation, this computer is $7k+ in today's money. 
     
    The OS floppy disk is missing though so it won't boot up but we are keeping this relic around.
