    thats what i figured would be best but making one would be extremely difficult, dont even know where to begin was hoping maybe someone on here made one already could offer some help lol

    will magnets mess up the screen though?

    no lcd's, CRT yes but not lcd.

    use magnets that are sized correctly, you dont need 4 16 pound magnets. those are nice for plucking wrenches out of cars, but thats it.

    I use 1 hard drive magnet to hold the panel on my bath tub in place. The industrial velcro kept letting go when the tub moved.
    Failure is not an option....

    Working in computer repair, I get dead drives all the time. I use them for everything. I've even bonded one to my valet key and stuck it to the car. I picked up 2 of the 1 1/2 inch "super" magnet spheres from unitednuclear.com. Those things scare me. They are pretty fun though. I can distort a crt from about 4 feet.
