Printer stand, Parallella rack system.

Parallella-16 Desktop itself is very tiny but it requires peripheral devices for full operation. The main reason I bought it was to use it as media server and hopefully backup workstation in case my main Linux box becomes out of service.
USB external hard drive – 1 TB
USB hub – 7 ports with own power adapter
Router

USB keyboard (optional)
USB mouse (optional)
USB printer (optional)

Measurement of the machines
The unit is mm.
I measured size of the devices to design the furniture: printer stand. a small rack system.

Sketches of printer stand, Parallella rack system

This is how I do first before building simple device or furniture. I draw quick diagrams that pops up in the head. I use a pencil and A4 papers. It looks professional if I use straight edge, protractor, and compass but I haven’t got used to formal design procedure.

Printer stand

I ran out of big L brakets. So I made four square wooden blocks, drill one vertical and one horizontal holes on each block.

It’s far from the perfection but it does what I intended which is the key point of DIY.

Parallella rack system

I used the small L bracket which takes 4 mm of bolts, the cheapest and smallest one I could find on the market. It’s sold at eighty KRW (less than hundred cents) from a home hardware store. I used 12 of them for the rack system.

12 round head, Philips bolts, diameter 4mm, length is 25 mm.
12 washers,
12 nuts.

Dimension of the two top plates: 200 mm x 200 mm (Width x Depth)
Dimension of the bottom plate: 200 mm x 170 mm
Plate material is MDF, thickness is 13 mm.

Total cost I spent except MDF board:
L brakets x20: 1,600 KRW
4mm bolts and washers and nuts x20 (total 60 items): 1,000 KRW

Prototype case for Parallella-16 Desktop

This type of case definitely need a fan. I didn’t know what was the safe temperature for two days. Last Sunday evening my Parallella box stopped working. Apparently it had been exposed to excessive heat well over the safe limit for several hours. I haven’t decided yet to buy another Parallella unit.

It was first time of completely destroying a system since I played with IBM AT computer in 1990. :-(

The board mounting hole take a 3 mm bolt.
I cut two steel plates whose thickness are 2 mm, drilled four 6 mm holes, four 3 mm holes.

First boot of Parallella-16 Desktop Computer

Installation of the heat sink

It comes with one metal heat sink and two adhesive tapes.
I peeled off the two tapes using a razor and put each one on two biggest chips on the board.
And aligned the heat sink on the board not to touch any metal parts around edges, pressed it for thirty seconds as the instruction says.

Grounding Is a Key Mechanism by Which Your Body Maintains Health

Source

By Dr. Mercola

The Health Effects of Grounding

When your body is exposed to a lot of free radical stress, your blood tends to thicken, and positive charges accumulate in your body. This causes chronic inflammation, which is a hallmark of most chronic and degenerative diseases.

Grounding effectively helps alleviate inflammation in your body. It also helps thin your blood, by providing your red blood cells with a surplus of electrons so they can effectively repel each other and avoid being sticky, which can lead to blood clots that can cause a heart attack or stroke. Research has demonstrated it takes about 80 minutes for the free electrons from the earth to reach your bloodstream and transform your blood cells.

For example, early (and even some current) birth control pills were notorious for causing heart attacks in women. One of the mechanisms responsible for this increased risk is that synthetic estrogens and progesterones increase blood viscosity. Other biochemical alterations caused by grounding include changes in:

  • Phosphorus
  • Calcium metabolism
  • Fibroid metabolism
  • White blood cells

Grounding also helps calm your sympathetic nervous system, which supports your heart rate variability, which plays an important role in balancing, in your autonomic nervous system. Pain relief, improved sleep, and a generally enhanced sense of well-being are but a few of the health benefits reported by people who try grounding.

Last but not least, when you are grounded to the earth, the negatively charged electrons you receive increase the structure of the water in your cells—just as water increases in structure when a negative charge is introduced by an electrode.

As explained by Gerald Pollack, PhD, author of The Fourth Phase of Water: Beyond Solid, Liquid, and Vapor, living water is negatively charged water. This water can hold energy, much like a battery, and can deliver energy too. In essence, when you ground, you are charging every single cell in your body with energy your body can use for self-healing.

Mark McCandlish is an internationally-recognized illustrator, designer and UFO researcher, focusing primarily on the technology behind advanced propulsion systems. He spent thirty years working within the aerospace and defense industries as a conceptual artist, specializing in aviation art and weapons development for the United States military. During the course of his career, Mr. McCandlish became aware of technological advancements in energy generation, stealth, and propulsion technologies that were several orders of magnitude beyond what the government acknowledges and the public is familiar with. His twenty-five year investigation of this area recently became the subject of a feature-length documentary being produced by filmmaker James Allen (Higgins) and was about to be released when Mr. Allen suddenly became quite ill, being diagnosed with a rare but extremely aggressive form of cancer. It took his life in two and a half months. Post-mortem toxicology revealed that James was poisoned with heavy metals and radio-isotopes, including Thorium and Uranium.”
