Thanks, I'm going to give this a try today. I had to take some time last
night and redo my set up in the tech room. My Wife and I have an entire
bedroom we aren't using (3 bedroom house, one spare room for guests, and
one we weren't going to use) so we made one room a tech room with all
out computers, and other little gadget workshop
After re-arranging some of the monitors and a desktop on my desk, I can
now use my BSD test box without neck strain heh.
