    That is a very interesting choice for monitor placement. Looks good overall...what are the other antennas for?

    The large white antenna is an 8dBi 2.4ghz antenna (picked up over at <a href=http://www.hyperlinktech.com/web/hgv-2409u.php>Hyperlink Tech</a>
    The other silver antenna is a standard CB whip antenna.

    The monitor was positioned out of need. The montior was to small for me to see down on the console... so i moved it up which also took care of alot of glar. I've just got to get a longer VGA cable and i can hide the cable along the trim work.
    I've also gotten permission from the local police department to position the monitor there... their only requirements to me was it couldn't block any of the mirrors.

    The Startrek Skin is actually a fully functional LCARS interface i've been writing over at stengineer.com.
    I've just released the first [beta] version of the newest version v2005.
