I'm a web developer. I help make deviantART work. I occasionally break it (see badges).
I would love to be able to draw but so far no attempts have proved that to be a reasonable expectation. I'd say I have a good enough eye for aesthetics, layout and design, (I've designed a bunch of websites and simple print stuff) but I've never considered myself a designer or artist.
These days I stay pretty firmly in code land and love the creativity of solving complex problems. Alas, it is hard to express this creativity in a gallery!

The wires coming over the heatsink are the DC power from the PSU (on the left of heatsink) to the amp boards.
I ran them over the top like that to keep AC power (blue/yellow/brown wires running along far side), DC power and all the audio cabling as clearly separated as possible to avoid interference. It also keeps the wires shorter than running right across and around the near side of the heatsink.
I bought the case as a plain aluminium box and machined it myself, heatsink was from ebay I think. It's about a centimeter shorter than the box is deep so those DC cables do have space to run over the top like that .
Well spotted. Yeah this is a 4 channel chipamp using same chip as that link but from different PCB supplier I think.
Powers my active HiFi speakers (that weren't active when I found them ). Sadly still using an old Behringer PA crossover - I designed my own years ago with carefully tailored slopes for the drivers, but never got around to building it.
