    Hey all

    I just ordered a 4x20 LCD for a mere 10 euros + another 5 for shipping :D :D :D :rock: Now I only need some suggestions on how to mount it. I intend on getting a nicer case than this one after my B-day on the 6th, theres a big modding convention near me on the 20th, so I need some suggestions where/how to mount the LCD without ripping my case to bits. Looking at the size of the LCD, I'm thinking of putting it in my 2 floppy drive openings.... any other suggestions?

    Gotta love it, huh? :D

    Willy, read this sticky, it'll tell you all you need to know about LCDs/VFDs and how you wire them.

    Yah, but it means cutting up my front and I don't really wanna do that, maybe this case'll serve as a HTPC (sans the LCD) and I don't fancy a big gaping hole in the front of it. I was thinking of clean alternatives but thanks for the input :thumb:
