I've been thinking about throwing on a small LCD Panel, so I can see
what's going on with it. However, after a couple of enquiries, I've

this is much of an option.

3. Grab one of the many half-dead gameboys around my room, hack together
some sort of connection (there are lots of schematics dotted around
the internet), and take it from there.
2 and 3 would be nice, because with a bit of work, I could control an
mp3 queue piping into a few rooms around the house..
Anyway, I'm wondering what people's thoughts on this are. Has anyone
tried any of the above for themselves?
