Thanks for the kind words!

I have added a bit to the blog post including the schematic for wiring it up and some build pics.

I am adding a "working" steam power plant to it, and posting the build log over at the steampunk forum on BrassGoggles:

Very retro look for the power source.
Nobody will ever know what's inside :)

Great job....especially on the 3 USB ports !
