I am planning to put a text-line LCD in my PC and I was wondering how I was to about doing it. I know where to buy the LCD...

http://www.crystalfontz.com

...but, how do ya'll think i should mount it? They have drive bay mounts, but I was thinking a mod for inside the computer, visible through my window....

I see these things in a whole bunch of custom $4000 PC in the mag...but where, or what, can I do to enjoy the same bliss?

I am still wondering about this mod. I know this is a harder one to do, but it definitely (note that it is spelled correctly) looks like one of the coolest!

Please! I need some feedback!

That is exactly the answer I thought I was going to get. I really wanted people to give advice on what they have done to their systems. Has anyone out their experiemented with this? I know it looks really cool and could be really easy, but what are some ideas?

What's your window made out of?

I would reccommend attaching a clear shelf to the window (a thin piece), and then glueing the bottom of the LCD thingy in your link to the shelf. That would very clean assuming your window isn't made out of glass.
