From the top, you can see the fan control and USB ports.

My case: By far the best I’ve ever owned, though it has a fatal flaw with harddrive noise in certain harddrive cages, and I wish the windows were bigger, and I wish the color-cycling could be automated.

±BACKSTORY:± Building my new computer! We decided to name it Thailog. Thailog ("Goliath" spelled backwards) is the evil twin of Goliath from the cartoon ±Gargoyles±. ±Carolyn’s± computer is named after Goliath, so it just makes sense that ±Clint’s± computer is the evil twin of ±Carolyn’s± computer. A quick summary of the computer’s specs is: Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-Core3.3GHz with an Arctic Freezer I30 cooler on a ASRock X99 WS EATX motherboard with 24G of Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4 2400mHz RAM, a Radeon R9 270 video card, and a Crucial M500 240GB M.2 SSD…all inside a massive NZXT Phantom 820 case. It was a $1560 build, summarized on my blog at clintjcl.wordpress.com/2015/03/06/journal-hardware-purcha…

Results are in on “Zenith City and Beyond” 500-Image CD-ROM by Jeff Lemke

Results are in on

If you enjoy pictures like the one shown on the cover of my latest project—taken at Duluth, MN. in 1966—then you’ll really enjoy my new Zenith City and Beyond 2016 digital image disc that’s available now. I announced this CD in October and made it available to subscribers for a small donation beginning on November 21st.

Positive vibes are already reaching my email INBOX, such as this one: "Just got my CD and absolutely love it! So many photos of places I have worked, brought back many memories. Thanks again for keeping Twin Ports Rail History alive." Vicki G.

As Vicki already discovered, my new CD contains 500 digital display images covering the Twin Ports of Duluth, Superior and surrounding communities—including the Mesabi Range. She used this link to find out much more information about this product before she made a small donation of just 4 cents an image!

Please check it out for yourself: conta.cc/2j3hGgI

My 2016 digital image disc is designed to be viewed digitally—perfect for viewing on your favorite digital device. And if you’re a historian like me then you’ll be happy to learn that you can use my images in a history presentation of your own, as long as they are not modified in any way. These aren’t just quick scans and copies like virtually every other history photo CD on the market today. Each of these images has been restored to remove the dust, fingerprints, film blemishes and scratches. Quality varies depending on the age and condition of the original, but overall—they look pretty darn good.

Content includes both color and black & white images that you can view on your computer through a CD-ROM drive or through your HDTV if connected to your computer network. No special software needed. Each image is its own file. Click through them one at a time or watch in slide show mode on your computer or HDTV. This is silent, no music or annoying beeps or clicks. It’s all about the photos, and each is made from an original film negative or positive.

Railroads include at minimum:

Burlington Northern Railroad
Chicago & North Western Railway
Duluth, Missabe & Iron Range Railway
Duluth & Northeastern Railroad
Duluth, Winnipeg & Pacific Railway
Great Northern Railway
Lake Superior Terminal & Transfer Railway
Northern Pacific Railway
Milwaukee Road
Soo Line

I’ve included many different industrial topics from around the area too. There are pictures taken from the air and high vantage points, shots of depots, buildings, bridges, trains, train cars, steam and diesel locomotives and details, boats, industries, ore docks, ore trains, ore cars, ore mines, signs, railroad men, interlocking towers, rail yards, roundhouses, and pretty much anything else you can imagine. The oldest image on the CD go back to 1889 while most were taken during the 1950s-1980s. Only a scant handful are more recent than 1980. So please consider making a donation today to help me do much more in 2017. There is a book in the works too so be sure that you are subscribed to my once-a-month e-Newsletter to receive those updates by email.

Thanks so much for your interest and very kind support.

Here’s that information link again: conta.cc/2hZ5Jr9

Cheers!
