Ye olde home computer network....

...will shortly be back online.

Well let's say by the end of August (I hope).

I ordered the bits for my new MP3 server earlier this week and most of the bits were shipped out today. I also dug through my computer equipment and I found some stuff I forgot that I had. I looks like I can use some of those old bits, a couple of the new bits and the old Moya to make my Mame/arcade cabinet and the MP3 server.

<insert Dr. Evil laugh here>

I'm very psyched about this. It took a few weeks, but I finally found a case that fits on my stereo rack, is cheap, and can hold the components I want it to. Random note, this will be the first computer I build that doesn't have a floppy drive. Not that I use them much, but it was a pain to find a small case with 2 5 1/4" drive bays and no integrated floppy/button fixture. This one has a space for a floppy, but that space is covered, so once I paint the case, it'll basically be invisible. It's sad to think about just how much thought I put into this ;).

Initially I'll start out the MP3 server with a 120Gb hard drive, but it'll eventually have either 240 or 360 Gb and I have lines on filling lots of it with MP3 and Divx goodness :). If any of you guys want FTP access to it, let me know (it'll probably be online in a few weeks-ish).

  • Meet Dargo....

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
