Returning soon from LOA

Returning soon from LOA

Post by (A/229) Utley on Tue 31 Jul 2018 - 4:23

I just returned from Atlanta this weekend and retrieved almost all of my flight gear.

As of this moment, I am starting to design my next computer. Depending when the new GTX series card comes out, maybe back online at the end of August at the latest. Anyone have news on this release date? I havent heard anything new yet, but was supposed to be dropped by the end of this month.

I need ideas on building a pit. I "might" have a shot at getting a captains seat from the scrap yard of 747s up here and Ill be looking into that this week, but for now I need some help with ideas for sheet metal fabrication and/or easy setups where all I need to do is buy a car seat. The nearest home depot is 45 miles away and Ive been buying AR-15s instead of piecing one together. Now that I have my flight gear back, I need something to draw up around them. If anyone can help provide pics and ideas, that would be awesome.

Also might be fabricating an open case/desk like a Lian Li. Not sure yet... Shocked

I posted mine here. It's highly functional, but not too comfortable.

I wouldn't build your computer into your seat/desk. When you consider accessibility, upgradability, contingencies, extra time and planning to make, there are a lot of reasons not to. If you can come up with that many reasons to actually do it, go for it, but the KISS method hasn't failed me.

thats actually not a bad idea...now just have to figure out where to mount the MFDs. Instead of a wooden chair though. Ill just hit up the junk yard for a car seat if I cant get my hands on a 747 classic captains seat.
