Re: WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?

Done for the year now. Got two to do next year.

Well what I mean is I got space for two more, then I am screwed LOL. So unless anything more desirable comes along than what I have lined up I will be doing those two.

Deffo not subbing out the 2hip, but would replace the Mongoose with something better if it comes along. Winding down now for winter.

Re: WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?

Nah just so much shit has happened man.

Mum had a bad fall a few weeks ago, cut open her leg and had to be taken to hospital in an ambulance. Stitches etc. My brother was notably absent as usual so it all fell on me, and I got enough issues of my own.

I had to build a new server but me being me I couldn't just use any chassis. I had to use a frankin G4 Mirror and it took friggin ages.

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/41840/f9fh72y5f668c7a90.jpg

I had to gut it, cut it up, fit a PC board in there remotely and then rebuild it (crap loads of custom wiring, it runs two PSUs one is redundant but I had to do it all myself etc)

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/41840/feaqrod5f668caa37.jpg

The SAS card is fitted now and the software is on, but to fit all of the HDDs you need to literally take it all apart.

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/41840/knafu9s5f668cc848.jpg

The work is done though, but that took me nearly a month of 9-5 pissing around lol

I begin the massive data migration next week (four PCs need dumping onto it at three addresses ffs) so yeah, ain't had time for much. Three days ago my buddy died and it's kinda thrown me in a loop. Made me think a bit... I think that's probably why I finished the Fatboy. I mean it could be me tomorrow, I would hate for my bikes to be rolled out of here incomplete lol

Hopefully one more week of pissing around (literally, I also had to drain down my water cooled rig and the GPU I bought arrived DOA)

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/41840/muvulnk5f668d3c07.jpg

So it's literally sat in my kitchen on life support with a franking jug in it lmao. Had to buy another GPU, but had to return the dead one first. Then the new one came, water block was filthy so had to take it all apart etc.

Life dude. Don't do it !!!! lol

I long for the day I can go back to pissing around with bikes again ! it means I ain't got shit all else to do lol

It's my second job. I work eight hours a day at my "normal" job, then work four hours at my shop in the evenings. Then eight hours on Saturday at my shop. I'm so insanely busy with bicycle work that technically I could quit my day job, but I'd loose my benefits and savings.

My own shop is my goal, making $$ on it or not. I work straight twelves, six days a week. Wrenching still, just not on bikes, production machinery.

Props on that, you need to know your $hit for that job. I worked in a metal fab shop for ten years, I miss it sometimes. The creative part at least. Mechanic job pays better, but these machines are soulless. I would love to make/weld frames one day.

Right Andrew, now I get the picture when you told me last time you were screwing around with computers! lol

Out of curiousity, what big data migration are you talking about? Movie dvd rips?

Everything I have amassed in the past 20 years. Movies, photos, home movies, music etc. I'm an audiophile so I have hundreds of CDs ripped to FLAC so I don't lose any sound quality. I have 5 computers dotted around all over the place, so I need to get the NAS I built around to all of them and get it all backed up. I also took on the cinema system etc as well as everything else. I had been putting it off since I moved, but the piles of audio gear were getting on my tits man.

I got the front end done a few weeks ago. It all had to be taken down and rewired. Added a Tag Mclaren AV32 which is a 7.1 pre amp. See, I got this obsession with valve amps so buying a processor with a transistor amp wouldn't do.


https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/41840/0e5nir05f67ca0648.jpg

The gap in it is for the server. Right now I am running a Dlink NAS (tiny black thing in the right hand corner on floor) but it's woefully out of date. So I need to transfer the DATA from that to the new one also.

I did the rears just before mum had her fall.

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/41840/ljwzzpv5f67ca43bd.jpg

And now yeah it's all computers and stuff. Stuff I have been putting off for about two years that needs doing now.

My second big rig should look something like this.

But instead looks like this.

Re: WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?

(see above with jug). I took out the GPU, sold it and bought a more powerful one but it was dead. So I bought another one.

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/41840/tujr8s55f67cae951.jpg

And a better CPU block.

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/41840/4xd2rkr5f67caf999.jpg

And a bigger res/tank

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/41840/rwqkkqj5f67cb049a.jpg

So I need to get that working again when I get back also.

I usually don't start the computers until October or later, but I am a month early this year. They usually get upgraded one a year or two, and I have four that I use for gaming. Two and home (bedroom and living room) and two at mum's (bedroom and living room). Plus a PS4 Pro, two Xbox 1x etc. Did I ever mention I like gaming? lol
