Tiny Computer Chronicles (RPi4 Saga)
Oh hey, the 40mm fan grill I eBayed for $2 arrived from Shenzhen today! It's a little crooked but still fits great and adds character; I also did a half-ass job of removing the SSD label and added a sticker from my friend Chu. The Katrina evacuee in me is a fan of having all this in a pocket-size form factor; 240GB is roomy for Raspbian, but I anticipate adding even more storage to it as I upgrade the storage in my other devices (like my PC and Switch).
Raspberry Pi 3B+ as non-Kodi media center
The C4Labs case came in and it took one evening's worth of use with the Scotchloks sticking out of the GPIO access port before I decided to snip them off and twist the wires together with electrical tape. And it still works, hooray!
As expected, the fan goes with this case incredibly well. I wonder if they make PCs with woodgrain panels often in Austria, and that's why Noctua fans ship looking like this
Apropos of nothing (really just my realizing the video upload limits are higher now): here's the video I made to show off the custom furry THUG Pro model I modeled as a gift for my partner @phenokage last year
Before I put this icon into retirement, here it is in full -- if you want one in this style, don't hesitate to commission my longtime friend @demoweasel (who does these routinely)
Observation about my old furry art from 2008, PG-13 sexuality/innuendo
I was talking with a friend about novelty in projects as a motivator, and brought up a meme I contributed to; the whole thing isn't worth showing off (I was super cavalier and nearing the tail-end of my edgelord phase) but these parts still look good to me. I was able to pull off multiple of these rows per-day despite having a full-time job at the time and I have no idea, uh, -how- I was capable of doing that
