Into my father's Linux server when I was too young for anything.

 

I don't think I've seen my father more angry then that moment. 

 

Go google that command if you really want to know what it does (although you probably already know what).


My build: tis be ordered

This is currently under my bed. Not even close to as dodgy as some of you folks though...

 

I too like to live dangerously.

The fans on my noctua NHD14 are attached to the heatsink with cable ties. Some fans in my pc are "mounted" that way too. Im just too lazy to screw shit in and hell if it works it works.

Powered USB hub -> Another USB hub -> USB cardreader -> SD to Mini-SD adapter -> Mini-SD to MicroSD adapter -> MicroSD card. Seriously, thats what i was using for copying stuff to and from my camera. 3 years ago, I was using some 10 year old computer (ten years ago from then) as my daily driver. It had no rear USB and like 1 or 2 front USB ports, and I think it might have even been USB 1.1.

i 'converted' the weird form factor dell optiplex motherboards into a normal mATX case. i had to angle grid the rear slots to fit the upside down graphics card and I.O ports. along with this i had to angle grind some of the hard drive cage away and make new stand off out of metal. when i bolted the board down i placed a thin piece of card inbetween to stop it shorting out onto the sheet metal i replaced the motherboard tray with. i took the power connectors and stuff like that off the dell optiplex case as it doesnt have the normal front panel headers. i soldered a switch in place of the power button. also i had to cable tie the heatsink and heatsink fan down to the board. as it used mobo standoffs to secure. once i booted it up i kept getting a message about a rear fan being missing. (i couldent change it in the bios setting) so by this point i just couldent be assed and ended up soldering the contacts together to short the fan header out. its served me well for about 4-5months. lets just say it was the most powerful dell optiplex ive been on before. then i couldent boot it up. no bios menu. and it turned out the solder id put on the fan header had melted damaging the mobo and frying the bios chip. i knew this would happen anyway but by this time i had just finished building my new pc. so guess it was perfect timing. i still have reminence of the ddr2 ram and core 2 duo cpu that powered the BEAST but unfortunatly no photos :'(

My room didn't have a grounded electricity socket (it's being overhauled right now) so I grabbed a copper cable from the barn, twisted it around the fan grill on the back of my PC, then scraped off some paint off the radiator, and put a clamp around it and connected the wire to it.

 

It worked, the electricity ran through the radiator now instead of through my feet when I rested them on my case.


So many things I could write here... things like this.

I started ripping out hard drives from my webserver while it was powered on to see if they could handle it.

 

Success, everything was still working. Even the VMs that were running on the disks that I ripped out powered back up fine.

I used double sided foam tape to hold two PSU's in a case.

I can't be the only one here that used a bit of bubble gum because he ran out of thermal paste, right ?

I do believe you are the only one  :blink:

Who needs a 100$ case, if you can DIY your own case xD

Exactly, what do those case making factories know about cases?

Except for maybe how big a power supply really is, I measured the base and completely forgot that they have protruding cords that add an extra 3 inches.

Also kind of another dodgy build.

Once I circumvented a circuit breaker with a piece of magnet wire and then shorted an outlet on the circuit it was protecting with a coat hanger until the wire glowed.

 

It was pretty hardcore.
