    Thanks again for the nice words!

    Finished most of the external work. Starting to dig into the parts. Had some stuff arrive this week. Some gear and some parts for taking better pictures.















    I'm in the process of ordering the CPU & memory. Also have a line on a PSU & some cooling. Hoping to get stuff installed sooooooooooon.
