Photo updates: litterbox, blisters

Oh, through pure stubbornness I finished the cat litterbox fan project. Here it is, up and running:

Extreme solutions to smelly litterboxes

You can't see it in the photo, but that gray utility box is screwed onto a piece of Lexan, so the window is more-or-less sealed closed. I figure the fan has a side benefit of improving the bathroom ventilation. Also, I can take it all off and restore the litterbox to its former functionality if I want to, for some unknown reason (hmm, winter). There's a bathroom fan that makes fan noises when the overhead light is turned on in the bathroom, but it's unclear to me how well it's actually working, and I don't think we'll have the full answer until winter hits.

This project was annoying because it involved working with materials that I don't enjoy working with: lots of plastic, a bit of electrical wiring. I never did get the correct kind of cutting tool for cutting plastic with the Dremel. I should probably look for one for lab projects.

Current state of my blistery right hand:
Blister update 2

While my thumb looks bad, it's my index finger that hurts the most now because it's the spot that currently has an open rip (to use [personal profile] annikusrex's proper parlance, from gymnastics). I probably shouldn't have gotten that blister on my palm, but I suspect that's a product of holding the handle funny. On the other hand, there's a corresponding callus on my left hand.

I've pondered often on a litter box ventilation rig exactly like that. Looking forward to the results.
