Conclusion:
Shannon W. Rawls may or may not be a genius, but he can at least watch Looney Tunes, which means he's got taste :P

Nice monitor Shannon!

I've always kept a piece of advice very close to me. Someone I met early on was very successful and he said, "If you want to be successful...spend time with successful people." That is great advice.

Unfortunately, people that end up on drugs don't listen to that advice enough. If they "changed their playgrounds and playmates" they'd succeed. (Someone I know is in AA and that's a saying they use and I actually used it myself when I was a teenager. I'm not in AA though, so I don't know what other good advice they give...lol.) Spend time with good people that are achievers and you'll learn everything you need from them at some point!

Cool, email is enabled on my profile now, look forward to talking to you.

By the way, the HD version of OOWU will be available by paid-BitTorrent in a day or two. Worked out a deal with Prodigem.com, we are pretty excited about this. We plan on making it cheap, like $5 - $7 to download the whole thing (not a rental, download to keep and play as much as you want). No DRM or any crap like that. Anyway, I'm interested to see how the whole BitTorrent thing works out (for a 3GB file no less).

Hi Shannon,

Out of interest, how did you fix the monitor to the stand ?

Andre, I used Velcro.

Ok..about 10 months later...This monitor is still excellent. Sorry about the photos not working. The url changed from BEOUT.COM to CINEMAHILL.COM but I can't modify the original post.

Enjoy.

Good info, thanks Shannon...it seems to be a good dual purpose monitor you've got there. Can you tell me how you power your 19" Dell in the field? I'm new to the game and haven't come across the (possibly obvious) solution for this.

I'm not familiar with the Dell monitor, but I have a Sony 17" widescreen LCD. Awhile ago I got an APC universal notebook battery, which can be set to anything between 15 and 24 volts and includes a whole bunch of adaptor plugs to fit different brands. It turns out that one of these plugs fit my Sony monitor, and when I correctly set the battery voltage it will power the screen. Haven't used it long enough to know how long it will run, but this is one possible solution to powering LCD screens:

Thanks for the feedback Boyd. Obviously powering this type of monitor is a little more complicated. I think I'll look at an external monitor when I'm ready to start generating an income.
