OK... so short story is we have spent the last week moving nearly 50% of the house around reconfiguring the rooms. Part of that is moving the cabinet, so I used it as motivation to finish off the external decorations before placing it in what should be a final spot.

There is still some work to be done including locating the second drink holder (so I only mounted 1) and also the top rear panel and bottom rear door need to be screwed in (which you cant tell from the front so not a biggy). Other than possibly adding some wheels as well though again it should not be moved again.

So here are a few pics.

Need to do some work on the software side of things.. I have a games list of about 100 games so far (out of the thousands available) that I like to play.. however the kids now play more than I do so I need to limit what they have access to and control the way the front end works.. so basically boot into a friendly kid version, and I then have to manually swap out to the "adult" selection or something like that.

Other than a few of the stickers not sticking well to the glossy paint overall I am pretty happy with it.

Grrr.... the stickers on the sides are not staying on... so I have had to buy some spray adhesive... hopefully that works...

Oh and I found the other cuppo.. so that will be going on very soon.

Also looking into wiring a power button for the PC to the CP.. it is a fricken DELL so it is not easy to do.. but especially now the cabinet is on carpet, it is hard to pull it out to access the PC from the back.



Oh and thanks for the comments!! Still very happy with it.
