I wasn't sure of the resolution. I just looked up WVGA. I didn't realize that it was only 800x480! But still if you could get the block diagram to scroll when you move your head it could be interesting (as long as you have a barf bag handy)

Yep, I have 20 + 30 + 20 = 70 inch monitor (with black borders around should be bigger than 75): :smileywink:

Nice catch, Jack, thanks. The keyboard was replaced with unit located under monitor. Here is the controller, connected to RS232, it contains 16 buttons and indicators, two jog dials and small monitor. On the monitor I have CPU load and some other info, buttons are programmable. This one from Hytec company, I guess. In addition I have 5 extra  buttons on Microsoft Ergonomic keyboard. That's more than enough for me.

Actually, that's an incorrect calculation, because the size is measured on the diagonal and you've simply taken three separate diagonals and added them. To get to a 70" screen with that you would need to add two more rows on top of the current row.

 

I don't feel like doing the calculation, but you're welcome to use the Pythagorean theorm to calculate the actual size.

Calculation was based on my version of the Pythagoras Theorem, of course. :smileywink:

 

You know, addition operation much easier than multiplication or division (and square roots, sin, cos, etc - oh, they are too complicated)

 

Like conversation between two young businessmanns:

 

One said - My business is - selling the cars. Just purchasing used cars, then I sell it with two percent higher price.

Another said - Two percents only? Not much... You have enough money then?

First said - yes, for example, purchase car for 1 thousand dollars, then sell it for 3 thousand dollars. These TWO PERCENTS are enough for me...
