Now is much quieter, and cooler. Board, cpu, and hdd's all around 101F
I got the transistor in last week and haven't installed it just yet. The 6x 2TB hdds are in a raid 5 for just over 9tb of usable storage.
>also get vga breakout cable, so now you can put a monitor on it and go through the bios

When it's all done its going up on Ebay and should get around 600$ for it.

I used the other 4 2tb hdds in another more simple nas project that is on Ebay right now. And should go for a nice profit.

Oh and I also had to fix all of the hd enclosures, the mech on them is complete shit, (nice job netgear)"

Good luck, I didn't have access to my attic at all, I've since installed foldable stairs and laid floor boarding, installed lights etc. so now it's a respectable storage space. Not entirely finished (I'll add insulation in the future) but pic related is a whole lot better than nothing.

I have flux, degassing stuff and various other bits to add when I cast.

I cast small parts anyway, so generally there's not a huge amount that needs to flow into the mold - hence doesn't matter if the flow isn't great or if it hardens quickly etc.

also, my electric furnace goes up to 1000c, so lowering the melting temp isn't a huge bonus either."

Commence to put hopped up 350 in it. Granny geared 4 speed.

Litterally pop wheelies in a $900 truck.

Has ac compressor but no factory ac.

Dad says (watch iss anon.) Flips toggle switch. Smiles. ...k. dad says when i get to town i will hear a noise. Says turn switch off and look at passenger front tire then look under tire in the bed.

Drive to town in 10 minutes and forget. God awful sound from under the hood. Panic. Remember shit off switch. What in the FUCK. REEE. Remember check front tire. Its almost flat. Well fuck. Dad must have been nice enough to toss a 4 way in. Lift spare tire. It's an airhose.

The fuck?

One end is tire inflate end and other runs under truck. Poke it with my knife. It has pressure. Air up tire. Dumbfounded. Crawl around under it.

"At work we have an X-ray machine that has warning lights, two to be exact. If the warning lights burn out, the machine cant be operated for safety reasons. One of the lights fucking burn just before theres an inspection, which can result in huge fines because of the broken lights.

I go and get my multimeter, beep out the lamp wiring, the bulbs were in parallel. I rewired the thing in series and put in two 230V bulbs. The machine works fine. Everyone cheers that i saved the company from a huge fine. Didnt get a single bonus from dodging that fine."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1499764 && dateTime=="11/18/18(Sun)16:56:23")

First problem, you got that the other way around. If the bulbs were initially in parallel, there would be 120V across each, and when switching to series this would become 60V, not 240V. Replacing 120V bulbs with 240V bulbs would have no negative consequences besides slightly dimmer bulbs (if they're incandescents).
Second problem, they should be wired in parallel for redundancy's sake, if one bulb dies then the other remains on, by wiring them in series you're defeating the purpose of having 2 of them."
