    Post 2 Questions, 1 could be dumb

    Hey,

    I guess i'll start with the dumb question. I just thought that if i find a small lcd, like 16x2 or something and the song being displayed is longer than the size (eg:
    Mighty Mighty Bosstones - Impression that i get) what happens, does it lose half of it or does it scroll. Just something i thought of and was wondering about.

    I also was looking at some older posts and found someone who said you could take lcd's out of old products like water meters or security systems. Has anyone done this, I don't fell like looking for some only to find out it don't work and then i have all the electronic stuff laying around. Not that that's a bad thing. Thanks.

    Ps. Im at work now and kinda bored, guess that's why i thought abouth that length of song and lcd size question.

    I'm using a 16x2 Display and using a LCD Plugin for Winamp. What it does it if the song title is too long for the display, it will scroll it, so you wont have half the words cut off.
    System: P133, 64MB Ram, 2x 1.05GB HD, 16x2 LCD, 12 Key Keypad, 300W Inverter, FM Modulator, 45x4 CD.

    as for question 2....

    as long as the lcd display has a hd4470 controller chip or equivilent ,it should be ok.... not all do though.. i got mine from a photocopier access box.. and a couple from konica photocopiers.
