  1. Be my guest! I have three or four issues that I scanned that I need to edit.
  2. It's going to become a thing where I will edit scans when I have spare time, but I won't neglect doing other things in order to edit. I wonder if there are any sites online where you can hire Chinese people overseas for a couple of dollars to do grunt work for you. Like a click farm, but for repetitive Photoshop work.
  3. Now that I have to do everything at home, how long will ittake me to edit this issue? Any wagers?
  4. I've had two scans edited and ready to go for about a year now, just waiting. And waiting
  5. I would love to, but it can be pretty expensive, and I would constantly hear my wife complaining about more gadgets, how we don't need it, and that it's just something else to break. I would love to have a Nest or Honeywell WiFi thermostat, but we apparently "don't need that".
  6. Hopefully it is, because I told him you said it was from that game!
  7. Those of you who have been here for a few years may remember a post I did in March 2012 about illustrator Marc Ericksen. If not, there is the link, with a bunch of broken images. Very helpful. The short story is that he illustrated the covers for five or so issues of GamePro, a plethora of game box art, such as Tengen's version of Tetris, Galaga for the Atarai 7800, and probably the most famous of which is Mega Man 2 for the NES. If you are on this site, you know his work. Anyway, he is doing a project for a retrogaming museum in Berlin and they would like him to do a piece of art for them. He is using one of his old pieces, which he believes was done in the 90s for and ad in a gaming magazine. I do not recognize it, but hopefully someone here does. Does this look familiar to anyone?
  8. Interesting, but I would be afraid of something getting hit or bumped in that configuration.
  9. Something to look into. The only problem with this whole thing is that access to the ports at the back of the motherboard will be hard to get to. Unless I put the motherboard right at the front, but then all the ports will be exposed and make things look ugly (or uglier),
  10. So I have plenty of room still inside of there. I don't know if I need a graphics card, but I have one. It's 9.37x4.37 inches. It's not giant, or maybe it is. MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) DirectX 11 N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II I don't play games on my computer that would need that graphics card, or any graphics card, really. But it is quite helpful with Adobe Creative Suite as some effects and filters will use the graphics card for a boost. So I would keep it as is. I would maybe even move the board closer to the front so I could have a fan suck air in from the area for legs and blow it across the motherboard, and have another fan on the other side blowing the air out. The on the front of the desk/drawer, I could mount the Blu-ray burner and my USB/Card readers. And on the top I could find a home for my hot-swap SATA dock that is currently on the top of my case. Just like this case: https://www.scan.co.uk/products/thermaltake-v3-blacx-mid-tower-case-with-top-mounted-sata-hdd-docking-station-and-usb-30-w-o-psu
  11. I like the height at which the top of my desk is at. I do not like those keyboard trays that sit lower than the desk, so anything I would do would not have one of those. If I used my desk, I would replace the top with a custom piece. It would be thinner so there would be more room for the area the computer parts would sit in. I would have to limit the available area so that I would have room for my legs. Otherwise they would press up against the underside. Below is an illustration looking from the top down of how I think I would need to lay things out. The power cord cubby is a current feature on this desk.
  12. I never thought of modifying my current desk. The top it's pretty thick and I would consider that wasted space. I like the idea of having glass on top. Maybe not the entire desktop, but at least part of it so I can see the computron inside.
