Yes, I was a computer repair tech for 5 years, managed a computer retail store, and now work for a software company that sells manufacturing software to large businesses....been working with computers since 1980.

Sol, What kind of camera did you use for your set up? Just took a few pics of mine but they came out lousy.

That is a nice one. I was trying to take mine with a Sony FD Mavica MVC-FD75. I think I was having a lighting issue. I also have a Canon EOS 35mm. Might try to take a few pics with it.

Most digital cameras have issues in low-light situtations...even the high-end ones...

This is my setup... its crashed a little more often recently (need new drivers i think) but i average about 500 hours of windowns run time before it crashes (constant no shut downs) (yes both monitors on one computer i know a couple of you have dual monitor too its WONDERFUL!)

And down to the left (attached to the little monitor) are the E-Vectras


once i figure out how to get 19vdc (without using inverter for 120V) they are going in my trunk for GPS navigation and On board diagnostics AND music....

Two monitors huh? You probably need to update your video driver.
