Most of the painting is done. It needs some detail work where sanding was difficult and where the damn cat walked over it while it was drying… Next, decals and stencil work when Nam gets back. Zombie Pigman lives!

Mina’s Minecraft Box Part 2

Sanded, prepped, and sprayed. Only lost one (hopefully unimportant) piece so far, when the cat came by and distracted me.

Fujitsu All-in-one Minecraft Box

Mina’s birthday is next week, so I’m tearing down an old PC I picked up yesterday to piece together her first VERY OWN computer. All the other kids get IPads, but my kids have to tinker with a rat box and learn command line first.

Mina carries around her kitten like a stuffed animal and makes it have tea parties and stuff. This is a feral cat that was born outside and gets in noisy fights every night, but it loves her.

RMU Welcome Screen

This is a huge Windows-driven LCD with which I gauge my arrival to the university every morning. It’s usually not on when I roll by the first time since I have a lot of early morning classes, but on free days I sometimes  see diagnostic screens, Windows startup, and the plethora of error dialogs that the operator has to click through before getting to the day’s scheduled programming. Sometimes I dream of hijacking it for giggles.
