This is my "Tortoise Beetle" torrent server. I used a VIA EPIA 5000 board with 512MB SDRAM and a 30GB Notebook drive to save files, and run my active partition on a CF card. Inside is a SATA PCI card to attach an external hard disk, though I mainly transfer files by Ethernet.
My tortoise found a shoe box. This gave me the idea.
First of all, I created my design in CorelDraw.
Then I built up a model using chipboard.
I started to make a box to go inside the tortoise beetle. The R symbol will go on the top of the internal structure.
Painting the plastic black.
Cutting the back panel with a fretsaw.
