A little delayed on the post, but we built a cornhole set, followed one of the many online guides. As you can see, we painted it Mario themed, overall I think it turned out really good!
I received a raspberry pi 2 for valentines day, so I set off on a new project. I found a Bentley Compu-vision at good will. Used this as the case for my original raspberry pi, usb hub, usb hard drive, and new raspberry pi 2.
Just registered for my first 50k (31 miles) ultra marathon…. nervous, check, excited, check, ready to train, check! Only 145 days until Ice Age Trail 50 race day!
Been a while since I posted, but I finished the Chicago Marathon this last weekend in 4:13:49. My wife made a video, so make sure to take a look.
Just wanted to provide an update from my previous post (http://akschaefer.com/2013/08/11/flatpi/ ). I did a new layout which allows me to easily access the Power, Ethernet, and HDMI without any issues. The previous layout I had to get my hand in the middle to unplug the device. I also added a USB hard drive, the connector I used is from an xbox 360 transfer kit, I just removed the plastic cover.
Alright, so while I love the title steam machine, its not a steam machine from valve, its more like a Windows machine that runs Steam Big Picture.

Side view did my best to organize the cables
Ah video card!
Hard to see, but I had to cut part of the case so the video card heat pipes could fit.
Motherboard came this way, the northbridge heatsink was not latched down, I found the clip and spring, and attached it. No problems so far.
