Wow, when you get the pictures up, it looks like I’ve done a lot. Here I didn’t think I was making much traction. My short term project list, in order.

  • Add 30 meter legs to my dipole
  • Hang dipole
  • Finish filing/sanding panda house front
  • Finish panda house front with a high quality varnish
  • Ask for help to cut stealth plate for panda’s dvd-rw drive. I’m going to be using Chrome instead of Copper simply because I couldn’t find an illuminated button with a copper finish.
  • Mount panda dvd drive
  • Unhouse and permanently mount panda’s HD.
  • Solder in panda’s expansion headers, make breakout cable, wire reset switch, w/led to front of case.
  • Get printer sharing to work!!!
  • Install apache on the panda.
  • Setup a subversion repository on the panda.
  • Investigate automatic, networked, cross platform backup solutions.

Lots down, lots to go! Have fun!
