    if it was possible, the wires should have gone down the little tube and out of the back (if they could be fitted in of course), it'd look neater i think, oh and also if the wires at the back were in black heatshrink :cool:

    heh dont get me wrong its a kick ass mod, all points to macroman!

    Genius.. wondering if Macroman is defecting from Razor-Tech over to Bit-Tech. Good use of 634 20x4, I have two Crystalfontz units and they are great to work with. I agree with Rich that the wires should have come out of the shaft of the old Creative microphone stand to make it look a little neater. Overall its a kick as mod and sets a standard for external LCD displays.

    TCP 40193 Netware 5 DoS attack

    Means little to me but one of you might know whats up.

    Picture on the frontpage looks very cool indeed...........kind of wish I'd gone more in debt now to get the bigger display instead of the 2x20 I've got.

    looks mint,
    i dont think macro could have put the wires down the shaft of the ex mic, cos the serial cable would be a bit too phatt, but i may be wrong.

    I had to reload nearly all the pics in the article, but they worked the 2nd time

    Right, the hole the wires run through is 1.5mm the stem is less than 2mm thick. If I could, I would have run the serial and power cables through it, but even using thinner wire would have been too thick. The power cable has to carry about 0.7Amps!

    Spike- the preset has three contacts, the wiper goes to R8 as shown the other two, one goes to 0V the other to 5V. I just picked up the appropriate voltages off the board.

    Images load fine for me.:eek:

    Hey macro, is that backlight going through any resistors or is it just connected straight to 5v, mine gets a bit hot at 5v.
