Few days later and I'm getting the hang of this. Note: prep makes welding 10,000 x easier.

Very first attempt stick welding. Work was on the floor and I was seated, so probably not as easy as it could have been. But you can see a couple of sort of beads there. Rest of it looks like robocops hemorrhoids.

Whoever invents heat shrink tube that is slotted with a super glue strip to fix the "ahh forgot to jacket it before soldering" mistakes will make some $$$

@0PT41N yeah a nas with some services for personal use more or less.

@0PT41N I'll have to double check to confirm, but it's an optiplex 7010 sff transplanted to a bigger case, i5 3470, 16gb ddr3, about to have ~6tb of drives when sata card gets here. Awaiting a normal atx power supply.

Gonna 3d print some HDD sized enclosures for my orange pis and have the inside of this monster case be a self contained server closet

@mike does the code smell musty like a basement?

I need to find a software like runcloud/serverpilot/forge that I can run on a pi and manage my home network servers(PCs) and do vps provisioning.
