OH, a VFD! I think I know what he is talking about! They sell VFDs aftermarket, the majority are PC-bay inserts for the computer. They have the ability to display everything from CPU usage, Winamp Titles (What's currently playing), SETI@Home, you name it!
crazyned, does it come with installation software? If not, what's the name of the manufacturer? Maby I can help you find it.
