V56 LCD driver card case

The case has mounting points for the driver card, an inverter, the control keys (although this is for the 5 key version I think - not the 7 key I have used in other projects) and some speakers.

It's all about me...

I'm a 48 year old married father who works with websites for a living. Doing that for work means I dont often update this site, unless I can think of something useful to say. I mostly like taking photos - and most of my internet presence now will be related to that.

Something else?

Dont you find it ironic that people invest so much in bringing you to a website only to give you a list of links to take you elsewhere? So I'm not going to give you a list of my favourite haunts to send you away from this site.
