Today turned out great!

I spent a long time working in my garage. I mounted my 2U liquid cooled Opteron under my 4 station desk.

Here it is mounted

I recently assembled this 2U liquid cooled opteron for a CS:Source dedicated server, it does pretty well hosted on my 8M/768K cable, up to about 16 players then my upstream tops out.

Here are all the components I put into the machine

I also put up a shelf for some of my extra peripherals, and finished the insulation in my garage/workshop/office/lan room. It should do well for the winter now.

Off to the bar to play some pool, then it's back home for a late night session with my Pspice lab for electrical theory class.



Today is shaping up to be a good day.

I work at a small company that sells electro-medical research equipment. I actually like the job normally, but this week and next week I will be transfering all the data from ACT, Quickbooks, Autoresponse Plus 3, Aweber, and miva merchant into our new CRM program. Mostly cutting and pasting, with a little marketting oriented editing, and a big learning curve. This dang CRM program just does too many things to be easy to setup. At least I get to use a computer I made, and it's fast as hell.

As if that isn't enough I put laundry in last night and didn't start it so I have no socks. All in all I'm thinking I really shouldn't even go in today.

On the plus side, since I don't normally work on Friday, I might have time to finish the line drivers I was working on last week. Don (the electrical engineer at work) was nice enough to give me 8 5' woofers and 4 tweeters, all reallly nice stuff, and he had a bunch of MDF so I figured I should make something that sounds great.

I still need to sand, seal and paint the boxes, then get a few nice capacitors, and some inductors so I can limit the highs and lows respectively, then mount the speakers. Based on the results others have had with these speakers I'm expecting them to sound very near to a $1500 speaker.

Anyway, I best hurry off to work, I've still got some Pspice labs to do for school tonight.
