A change in employment and living arrangements have led to me using the shop as a shop. What a concept. I'm also doing more projects, so I will hopefully keep this journal updated more often. I "celebrated" Independence Day by working down at the shop. I finally got my benchtop turned back into a workspace. The thumbnails link to full-sized pictures.

The Bach bust is there because it's about the only place I have that it won't fall off, not because I want it there. I'd kind of like to shove the thing in a box and not look at it, to be honest. I'm probably going to be moving the last of my tools and parts at home down there tonight.

I did start a little project. I can think of a million reasons why I shouldn't have, but I did it anyway. I apparently own well over a dozen optical mice, some wired, some wireless. Since I am a huge X-Files nerd, I'd like to mod one to be themed. The first one I pulled out of the box was a purple wireless mouse. I HATE PURPLE. However, it's the color of cancer survivors. My younger sister is a survivor who loves the color purple anyway. She's been in remission from Burkitt's Lymphoma, and the lymphoma awareness color is green. I'm going to add a green ribbon window and change the optic color to green, and give it to her. A little something she'll appreciate, and a bit of fun and practice before I do a more complex design for myself.

PhotobucketAll I've really done so far is take it apart, glue the loose optic lens into place, and start cutting the hole for the window.  I'd kind of like to change all the installed LEDs to green tonight, but I've got some priority work from the computer shop to do.  We shall see what I get through tonight.
