I'd just like to thank everyone for the many lols and humour I've been provided with by spreading word about this doomsday device around the glory that is the interwebs.
Tried running it off of USB, but it drew too much power, and I kept getting error messages.
About 4 months ago it died. Seems that some of the electrical components in the motor failed. (I'm not knowledgably enough to fix the motor, I just know it doesn't work).
Has been replaced with a "butterfly" which is powered by a 7 meter long extended molex cable which can be plugged into our HTPCs
I've modified female molex sockets into the front of the lougeroom and bedroom HTPCs for her convienience
Thanks all again, it's been an honour, and I hope to amuse one day again shortly in the future with a new creation I'm conjuring up
