Yuck! mad.gif I would take cooler temperatures with less humidity in general, but if it is like spring over there, it wouldn't really be any better. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Just be glad you aren't in the Navy and they have you stuck someplace really fun, like "The Rock" aka Diego Garcia in the middle of the Indian Ocean. wink.gif

Funny you should mention Navy (hiya Shipmate biggrin.gif), and my first duty station was Sasebo, Japan....the armpit of the Navy. tongue.gif There was NOTHING to do there but drink your money away, climb a mountain or go to a depressing bomb site. What a lovely 3 years that was!

Sadly, I've never served in the armed forced. Getting up at oh-dark-thirty and being barked at for hours on end to do relatively mindless things just wasn't something I wanted to do. God bless you and all the other members of the armed services who are doing it though. Working for the state police for 7 years was bad enough, I couldn't imagine multiplying that and complicating it with all that being in the service entails.

I'll have to ask my wife where her previous husband was stationed in Japan. Sasebo doesn't ring a bell though. It was an Army base that was in the far north of Japan. Can't remember the name though.

You have my condolences, I mean congratulations!

I've only heard stories from several of my prep-school and college friends who were stationed there, I've personally never been. By far, they talked about how horribly boring that place was. Nothing really do to when you weren't on duty. It's just a tiny spot in the middle of the ocean. They tell me that when you first get there most people are drooling and think that it's the best duty station you could get, but then after the "oh ah" factor wears off, you just get bored out of your skull.

Yeah there isn't a whole lot to do on an island that size, especially when half of it is off limits due to being a nature preserve. At least its only for 6 months this time around.

Well, I figured I'd mess with the Mayhem Orange dye that came in awhile back. So I hooked up some of the Bitspower fittings and Durelene tubing and put in some distilled water and add a drop of dye, shake it up, and see how it looks. Each progressive photo I added 1 more drop of dye. What do you think?

I think the more dye you add, the redder it starts to look (at least in the pictures, may look different in person). On my monitor, I like the first one (1 drop of dye) the best.

It's still pretty orange, but yes, you are right, it does seem to take on more and more of a redish look the more you add.


One thing for sure, I can tell that I will have to think about a lighting system for this build as well. I can see where in order to have this thing really "Pop", it's going to need variable intensity while LEDs.

Maybe I'll have to once again look into these things.
