GHETTO CD PLAYER: I put this together for my brother, since his CD player died. It's temporarily using my PSU with the ATX to AT adapter (for the power switch) to power the Creative CD420E, a really really old 4x CD-ROM drive that does actually still work. It's probably worth a good buck. Oh well. And on top is the Sanyo speaker as seen in one of the photos below.

Laying out my thrift store finds. I was in need of more spare parts, so I picked up a trashed Dell Dimension 2350. I wasn't able to start it up, since the CPU cooler mount was destroyed by the previous owner. I've already fully parted it out, but the parts will go to good use. Sitting in the bottom of the case were some other goodies, seen on the side panel, [close up], and I also picked up a Neovo F-419 LCD monitor, because I needed a monitor with DVI. [close up] It's actually quite a nice, clear and BIG monitor.

WHAT ? HOW DOG DO THAT

Also, it's a cardboard cutout. You can download and print your own Friday the Dog here: froprint.pdf (4 pages).

It's hard to see with the insulation, but the ceiling joists are in fact, not 23 feet long, but they're actually 11 and a half (?) feet, just split down the middle. They're also 2x4s, not 2x6s so it only seemed right to reinforce all of them with an extra 2x4 glued and screwed in 15 times to each joist. Hey, the attic doesn't shake anymore!
Feb 25, 2021

Finally getting the insulation up in the garage, at least on the ceiling. It turns out that the shop lights we have, despite shown as being both plug-in and hard wired, they're only plug in, so we've already done the electrical for the extra plug sockets, just the outlets aren't installed yet.

This is sort of my new test setup speaker, a little Sanyo Portable CD Player speaker from the 80s. I can easlily just plug it in, hook it up to the sound card, and get going. I used to use old Apple earbuds as test speakers, but I got more and more frustrated with the lack of an actual mechanical volume knob, and not to mention, they obviously sounded horrible as speakers. This little Sanyo thingy actually sounds great, and is super well built. Feels real high quality, no crackles in the sound, and is in great condition after all these years too. Would reccomend (only available in a thrift store near you).

A cold snowy day... and Timmies was out of hot chocolate!!! Yes, I had gone and pushed the snow off of the car cover before it collapsed.

This is the same S3 Trio64 card as seen in the previous photos from today, but I installed the memory expansion chips that were sitting in the bottom of its antistatic bag. They work perfectly, so I'm not sure why they weren't installed. Now I can go rockin that 2MB, babyyyy

Two VGA connectors... Video accelerator card? Nah mate -- DUAL MONITORS bAbY
Jan 28, 2021

Here you can see the 2 video cards in use here. This was before (consumer range) video cards had multiple video outputs on them. Main card is still the ATI Mach64 GT, and the second is a Video Excel S3 Trio64 V2/DX.

First time experimenting with dual mointors in Windows 98. Yes, this computer has more monitors than my main setup. As you can see on the monitors we are reviewing the most life changing and beautiful art.

Here's where some pipes come in from the walls in the house to the garage ceiling / attic floor. See that hole that doesn't have a pipe? Well, that's where all the rats have been getting into the attic from!!! No wonder they were all on this side of the attic. So irresponsible of the builders to leave that there.
Jan 21, 2021

Here's the ceiling now, and you can see the attic floor. When we first put up the wood panneling on the ceiling, we originally used a nail gun, but then later reinforced it with screws because it was actually falling off in some places :/ ... Be super careful around those tiny nail gun nails. I only cut myself twice on them.

A shot from the floor. Nice asbestos drywall right there.
Jan 21, 2021

After this days work, and some of a few days ago: Only the house side and garage door walls remain. Ceiling was pulled down. There's still the huge mess on the floor, even after cleaning up for over an hour.
Jan 21, 2021

Here's this makeshift car port sort of thing we put together to store the car while working on the garage.
Jan 21, 2021

Before pulling down the ceiling, we had to do something to hold up the garage door openers. The garage door side wall hasn't been taken down yet because we have to remove the rest of the mechanism, and the house side wall is still intact because it actually is insulated, so we'll do that one last.
Jan 21, 2021

The garage before starting work today. Now you can see the whole reason we're doing this project. NO insulation. We're storing semi-important things out here, and the garage is freezing in the winter time.

Good to see our sprinker system is Y2K complaint!

Enjoy those cob-webbed 80's lookin' windows one last time.

The garage already starting to look very empty. Yes, that is actually a door behind the cabinets. We never actually used that door, so when we put the cabinets in, we figured we'd just build over it. We actually siliconed it for good measure. If someone ever attempted a break in, it would probably be through the back door here, and it'd be funny if they tried.
Jan 15, 2021

Making good progress clearing out the garage.

Just something to note on pull down attic ladders. This Warner branded ladder that had the spring system on it, broke on us after a year of owning it. For the rest of the years it was still in use, we just manually pushed it into the attic without help of the spring. The force of the spring combined with the stress on this point from shaking the ladder and moving it, it just broke off.

Shoud've added some effect to this picture to make it look way further down. Throwing done some trash that was sitting around in the attic.
Jan 15, 2021

The last picture of the garage I took before we started to take everything out and dismantle it. I love the way the garage looked, but you'll see why in a minute.

Drinking orange juice with my toast for breakfast and looking at Kugee's Twitter page one last time before Twitter Armageddon later that night.

Probably the best use of Internet Explorer you could think of. I'll probably install Mozilla 1.0 since it has better rendering, but I didn't have a copy of the installer on my local server at the time.

The Toshiba Satellite A100 rises again. Now running Lubuntu 16.0.4 LTS, and using it for my school work and web browsing. This is actually the only laptop I own that works, except for the Dell Latitude c600 from 1999. Wallpaper is from foxkeh.com
Oct 28, 2020

The sunset outside the window. I have this as a 256 colour wallpaper as well, even though this scene looked way better in person :/

Here's the same system, sans case. I stripped the case of its parts and plan to put this motherboard as well as a bit more into a nice Mini Tower case. I hate these desktop cases, but I couldn't pass it off for what kind of hardware I'd get. I temporarily put my Pentium board in the case, but plan to get a Mini Tower for that one too as well. When both of my AT motherboards have tower cases, I'll sell the desktop one. Might have a go on retr0brighting it as well.

And I know you've been asking, and here it is. The CPU in all its glory, the AMD 486 DX4-100 CPU. WOW, what a find. I purchased this machine for much less than you would expect, but also without knowing what kind of hardware I would get apart from it being a 486 class system.
Sep 4, 2020

This is an ISA 486 based system with a very nice motherboard probably from 1994, an Arvida Technology S802G v2.0. In the expansion department we have a Sound Blaster Vibra 16 CT4170, Cirrus Logic CL-GD5426 VLB Video Card and a Winbond UN-1082 VLB Controller card. Seems like this system has been upgraded over time. Quite nice hardware.
Sep 4, 2020

The ASI 486 the day I acquired it. Opening up the case to check out what kind of hardware we have.

Helpful tips from Microsoft Word. Throw some personality into your works!

Just finished the siding in the garage with my Dad. Our garage looks like a cabin now! And those crappy curtains from the 70s just pull it all together.

Playing back my Clifford VHS tape, recorded from WETA in 2013. Half the inspiration for CLIFFORD PLS

The inspiration to dogsite.dog. The only website made exclusively for dogs.

Here's a view from the front panel. The case was from the same "trashpicked celeron". The motherboard was from a trashed Packard Bell, and if you're familiar with LPX boards, you might notice a lack of... a riser card. Well actually, the riser portion of the board was corroded, and the board would not post if it was inserted. The corrosion is very minor, so when I get some soldering equipment, it might be some good practice to attempt to repair the board, not that I even have a proper case for it anyways.
Apr 1, 2019

Not an April Fools Day joke, an actual project I was messing around with. I had some spare parts, but none of them worked together, so with the power of wire ties, I created this absolute abomination that was actually more jank than even the ORIGINAL "Ultimate DOS Machine" that Druaga built, because due to it being an ATX case, the ports weren't accessible at all unless the motherboard IO was facing UP.
Mar 31, 2019

Halfway just trying to get the grime, dust and cigarette tar off this thing so that I can feel alright taking it inside. Didn't take a photo of the final product, but I'll get to it soon. Just like the NES, it's working just fine.
Mar 31, 2019

Here's the NES, looking a lot better. It's not perfect, but I plan to do a more thorough clean eventually. As of right now, it is actually working!
Mar 31, 2019

And the SNES as well, even more filthy. Funny story when I was searching through the rest of the pile making sure I didn't miss anything, the guy who lives there went like "hey thats cool but don't make a mess cause I don't want the garbage pickup guys to be like "what the FUCKKK", so yeah thanks"
Mar 31, 2019

Here's the filthy original NES. I don't even want to see the inside of the house this came out of. I've actually seen the people who live there, they're an older couple and they're nice people as far as I've seen.
