Nifty ... (see below)

I'd think getting the raw data to LCDproc and building a new mode screen =
seems to be what I've decided to call them now ;) to generate a =
screen from the raw data.

Chuck the code our way when you get it working and we'll get a new mode =
into LCDproc for you! (With credit, of course ;)

I still need to do that credits page on the web site, too :) People who =
credit for something (involved with LCDproc, not credit to buy things =
with :)
please give me a hollar! I think I've got everyone, but don't let me miss=
of you!
