Arcade Unit is Finished at last!

I just got the computer stuffed inside of the arcade unit, all the controls work, wireless works, blinkies work, and I can finally play MAME! Still have lots of things to do in terms of final 'ui', stuff, I also blew out two of my ports on my usb hub when farting around trying to get the computer in the case. By away the hardest part of this project was getting the computer mounted in such a tight space. Next time I will use a SFF pc for sure! WHat a disaster. My hands are all cut up, I have bruises, and I am glad that the unit is 'inside'. Very serviceable, since I can just connect automagically via wireless to the unit and perform basic maintenance. I hope to not open it up for many years.....
