How do I use it?: This is my main, one and only PC. I use it for everything, though I mainly use it for programming a homemade game and multimedia engine I’m inventing so most of the time it is idling in Notepad but when I have to test my programs or do light gaming then I have to plug a “tumorous Geforce GTX 750 Ti” to run into a D3D/Vulkan runtime. Currently the project is missing a few details and I’m also working on a mod to accept half-height VGA adapters.
Why did I built it?: I tend to move frequently from place to place, internationally speaking. I’m not a good friend with current laptop technology and needed a desktop class computer with me all the time. This project gave me all the power I needed packed all in one small and sealed case: Every component is internal, there are no connectors exposed through holes except for the power socket in the back. I catch attention of airport’s officials so when traveling I stick papers to it explaining what it is. It has been tried to be stolen once in a South American airport by an employee (everyone wants one of these, right?).
