If anyone out there is thinking of making there own case, you'll be
happy to know that you can lengthen the VFD cable without any apparent
problems. I just completed this piece. Though, I won't know for sure
once the spectrum analyzer code is available. I imagine this will be
quite a bit of data across the cable once implemented.

No worries about that - it's the same data rate whether static or
moving.

Good to know... nevermind my inquiry I sent you about where I can
borrow power off the PCB. I see clearly labeled spots already,
verified with the multimeter.

You can also pull power from the geek connector pins 1,2,3,4 - may be
easier to solder than those test points you're referring to.

Oh and you can also easily pull +5V from the display, at the 3-pin
header above the IR sensor.

Where is that exactly? I just found 5V off the 3 pin IR connector, but
what your are referencing sounds more appropriate.

Scratch that.... found it

http://lists.slimdevices.com/archives/discuss/2004-January/024041.html

Is there an easier way to search the archives?
