My HTPC lack a graphical display. I want to see the play length of my movies, the temp of my CPU and the upload/download information of my torrents.
I first thought to purchase a VFD based display, but aren’t we after year 2000? Therefore, a greenish old style display is not really appealing.
But, I found what I needed at Matrix Orbital, a Canadian based company specialized in VFD AND LCD display.
