Well its been month since the new RC5-72 clients were released from Distributed.net and I am proud to announce that I have just released a perl script for those people out their running it along with a serial or parallel character LCD display.

The script (RC5LCDinfo) takes information that is generated from the dnetc client and displays it on a 20x4 character LCD screen (of course you need a screen to display this information, it also requires the use of the LCDproc display server for drivers etc).

You can see the snapshots of the script in action here:

You can download the script here ( http://www.linuxathome.net/lcd/lcd-v0.1.1.zip ) or just read the readme file here ( http://www.linuxathome.net/lcd/readme.txt )

PLEASE NOTE: This is still really a Beta, so if you find any bugs please send them to mayhem@linuxathome.net or lcd@linuxathome.net
