    Hello timmaah,

    Nice job on your displays! I had been thinking I needed smoked glass for the display and yours prove it. I also use mine to monitor services, in my case imaging web services at work.

    Now if only the displays were still available for $1…

    yeah if they were still a buck each, might even be pics of a third here – good stuff.
