i started out trying to sand the bracket, it was taking a really long time and i was burning up a lot of sand paper. i thought there must be a better way, it turned out there was. i read somewhere on the line that common degreaser would chemically un-bond the anodizing from the aluminum so i figured i would give it a shot.
i finally have the page somewhat setup the way i want. ironically it looks a lot like my wife’s new page www.c57studios.com figuring out all the php in wordpress has been a small challenge but im understanding more of it daily. look for some updates on the project pages, i need to move all my ESXi hardware build and setup notes into one central place.
-central place created. more work ahead.
