I used hot glue to attach the top piece of a table tripod to the end of the arm which is then used to attach the microphone. An alternative would be a large ring along with 4 rubber bands.



    Anyway, tried it out earlier and it works great. No more "taktaktaktaktak" sound from my keyboard.
    How much did it cost to make in total?
    I have a similar microphone stand, but it's a real one.. Only cost about 50$ AUD + shipping from Ebay.
    Materials couldn't be that much cheaper, could it?

    Well, for me it (the lamp) cost 79 SEK, and the rest I had lying around.

    Not sure what the lamp costs in USD or AUD, but I'd recon it's about $10 or thereabout. Factor in cost for the hot glue, zip ties and a leftover mini tripod... maybe $15 total?

    That looks like the TERTIAL lamp, if so it's $9 in the US: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20370383/

    New keyboard in the form of a 6Gv2 SteelSeries using black switches

    Coming from having used a rubber switch keyboard for a long time this was a very pleasant change.

    I wonder, is that because you went from a membrane to a mechanical keyboard or was it specifically the Steelseries 6Gv2? If yes, then what makes it stand out according to you?

    What is this? Stuff wrapped in plastic?!



    I've got my case bits back from their powdercoating session!



    It all looks very lovely, you can check out the rest of the pictures I quickly snapped here!

    I think I'm still going to paint the exterior surfaces with a white HS colour for a nicer finish though My package of acrylic tubing should hopefully arrive by friday so I can have plenty of time to play with them this weekend.

    Awesome! So wait, is this a new computer or are you redoing the case that you had from before?

    Soooo... I got sick of having just one monitor. I knew I should have upgraded to the one that was VESA... but I loved the AH-IPS the ASUS MX239H has and the color is calibrated about as perfect as you can calibrate it, I think? It was only $200 for an A+ grade AH-IPS 1080p panel... I'm happy with that.

    I must say though, my 5 year old Gateway 1680x1050 LCD monitor has better color reproduction than my 1 year old Acer S211HL... >_> See for yourself! (This was the best I could do to get this all to fit and work. The Gateway (Mr. Far to the Left) will just be like media player-type stuff.

    Well, the case is my old 343B that I got bored off and decided to mod quite extensively! CPU/Mobo, GPU and SSD are new, + some miscellaneous cooling parts that are new

    Looks like a proper whisky glass, although knowing Deltrus he probably drinks beer off it (the weirdo).

    It's a snifter which is typically used for brandy/cognac. Whiskey doesn't 'officially' have a glass the way champaign has flutes/coupes, white/red wine have their stemware, and basic mixed drinks come in highball glasses. Traditionally whiskeys are served in a short glass with water on the side if it's close to cask strength, but one distiller has tried to invent a "scotch glass". I have a couple but rarely use them because they don't seem to improve the experience of drinking a scotch, I've also never seen one used at a proper scotch bar (though I have seen them at tasting events). The look sort of like a shortened highball glass but they're flared at the base slightly.
