Headcrabs = Half Life 2 - it's a game ;)

Riding a motorcycle = cruising on a 1952 650 Norton ;)

So what am I doing?

Building a disco console to take 2 x BSR turntables/Shure SC75 cartridges/Citronic Mixer/Numark twin CD player.

They're just hanging around surplus so I thought I might as well bung 'em all together in a box.

It may come in handy, I may try and sell it but I'm thinking it may be good for small spaces as it would probably be less than a metre long and better than trying to fit in a 5' long coffin.

Will be buying the plywood and the paint from Wickes tomorrow morning.

I usually paint the disco stuff gloss black but may consider another colour - perhaps white - suggestions?

It will have aluminium edging and flight case corners salvaged from scrapped items, so that's a consideration when looking at colours.

Other than that, nowt planned, have some paperwork to do, I'm still converting vinyl to digital (actually getting close to the end now) and will probably visit the pub once or thrice :)

Was supposed to be going over to Spain for the weekend, but everybody seems to have come down with a cold and bit of a fever, so looks like it will b spent in bed..Shame really as the weather is apparently going to be good here...

Flopps, if you ever use UV disco lighting, you could get funky and try some "Wildfire Paint." It's totally non-toxic, etc. "Brightly colored fluorescent images under white light become powerful, glowing images under black light, appearing as though lit from behind." There are some examples if you click the link on this page. The paint is available in the UK, here. But of course, you could always stick to good old Dulux :p

Thanks for that. :thumb:

Thought it was some thing to do with head lice but couldn't see any connection with riding a motorbike. :D



I'll probably be mucking about in the garden as we are promised some half decent weather this weekend. Might even get the barbie out. :)

Hey dude....why dont ya use your favourite game as a theme for your paint job....or try Camouflage maybe...also i'm just starting on the long road of converting vinyl to digital and i'm dreading it. I just packed up me wheels of steel a couple of weeks (10) ago and dont know whether or not to flog them....what kinda stuff did you play ??

That's an idea :thumb:

But.

It's pricey.

I would have to buy a UV light and I may just sell this console, not keep it.

Only available online and I want to finish this thing by Friday at the latest.

Still, I do apreciate your input, thank you :)

Well, Yesterday was a relaxing day - spent most of the day in the garden, taking advantage of the nice weather whilst it's here

Today - not really sure to be honest.

Monday - Bank Holiday, OFF WORK!! WHOO! - Might be doing something tomorow.

We didn't have any specific plans for the weekend, but I found my ancient PSP7 software sitting there, forgotten in a cupboard, so I decided to experiment and see whether it would work on Vista. Woo-hoo, it does!

Last time I installed it, I ended-up just giving-up, but,providing it ever decides to co-operate and not panic at the sight of a downloaded tube, we might just get along better this time :rolleyes:

Looks like I will be busy with that for a bit.
:D

Been out to a place called Tatton Park for a nice walk in the sun, lovely day :D Did see some of the worst drivers ever today though - including 2 cars trying to push each other off the road repeatedly :eek:

I hope this sun lasts a little longer :)
