I think my tendency to ramble might have thrown a lot of you off the scent of the "secret something" in last week's Random Question post. Many of you mentioned the tv/computer screen. You're right... the giraffe desktop was a picture hubby had taken awhile back. Your names have been taken down and will await hubby's drawing.
For those of you who mentioned Serengeti... I feel you... I really do. I will get to this, I promise, but I've been stitching on Butterfly Lace whenever I had stitchy time. For those of that mentioned going on safari... I want to, I do!!! And we'll go back there one of these days. :D And for those who mentioned Diablo 3, yes!! It'll be due out in about a week now, but that wasn't the hidden element.
Oh, and Jo, we don't have "tuts".... we have a few PC gaming and Cooking magazines that's in a magazine holder on the side of the couch and that's about it. LOL!!!
Alright, to the subject matter at hand...
THE QUESTION: There's a secret something in this picture. What is it? Where is it?
THE ANSWER: See the basket?
|Before: Store bought basket-weaved hamper.|
|Hubby undid some of the bottom weaving for ventilation...|
|... built a frame inside...|
|... built an outer frame and attached some feet, that I painted...|
|... sexy PC components that he bought and put together...|
|... the cooling fan and some particle board.|
I cut out a hole big enough to fit and screw the fan into...
|... fan and finishing lid placed into the particle board...|
|Power button etc. hooked up into the particle board.|
|In goes the PC. We opened up some gaps between the weaves|
at the back of the basket for the power plug, ethernet and what-nots...
|... on goes the fan and power controls...|
|... ventilation from the bottom and hot air pulled out through|
the fan at the top to cool the PC.
|A new piece of decoration in our living room...|
|... to house the brains to allow us to play Trine while waiting for Diablo 3.|
I mean, the system HAS to be tested out, right? ;)
and THE GOODIES GO TO:
Congrats, girlie. ;) Email me your addy and I'll zip the package right out to you.
