More info on my blog,

But I think this is the final home for my Pi. :67:

I managed to fit the Raspi into a junk C16 PSU by carefully removing the internal bosses and supports, the plastic was easy to work with.
I used a stanley knife,hacksaw and some fine files to keep the whole thing tidy.
Finally I added a power LED by attaching an LED and 480r resistor to pins 1 and 13.

I use the Pi by tightVNC server and also puTTY so my retronica case can work in the background, anywhere in the room/ house without leads or a keyboard.

 :78: I have broke more things than I have made.  Curiosity can lead to many regrets. But this one is nice.
