Where did you get that char LCD? I've been looking for one that doesn't have the PCB sticking out too far.
Check out the LCD in my sig its from crystal fontz, also has controls on it, I think it comes with 4 temp sensors and can intergrate it like all the others with a few more buttons it could be a nice addition, but its $70
Cool, I paid 70 for my serial one 4 years ago.
No buttons, just a green display that fits in a 5 1/4 computer spot.
