Here's a sneak peak at the next revision of my custom case (and my
entry for the software/hardware plugins contest). Been at it for
several hours now, time to eat:

http://www.geekmods.com/slimp3/g2/

Still to do:

-Borrow power (hopefully) off the unit for the blue LED. If not, I'll
figure something out

-Test and implement a longer ribbon between the VFD and the CPU

-Create a new back panel for the audio out/power/etc. Mount CPU to rear panel

-Whatever else comes to mind before labor day weekend

-Post the schematics for the front/rear panels

-Finish work and final assembly, and maybe soem actual words to go
with the pictures

Sean and the crew, this new display is the missing link for me. I can
finally read it from across the room. Many thanks for getting us a
graphical display!

That url doesn't work. Is it correct?

How did you make the case? Do you have special machinery?

Father-in-law co-owns an amplifier company. He helped me out. It was
done in a machine shop as a return favor... but you can easily do
similiar designes for less $$$. Such as this one:

Geek connector, well... geeked. Thanks for the tip Sean.

Finally finished up the entire case. You can see all the latest photos
here, as well as some brief commentary on each photo.
