    Very slick. Where'd you get the plastic for the frame around the screen?

    If you hadn't noticed yet, I think your site is down.

      Thanks!

      The frame around the screen is framing board. I had it cut at a framing place downtown I just slapped plexiglas (soon to be replaced) over it, and... wah-la!

      Yeah, my site is down I dunno what's up with that. I think it might be a routing problem with the gateway (NOT THE COMPANY lol) box upstairs.
