    A housecat could find a way to turn a steel beam upside down if they wanted to lay on top of it and it didn't quite feel right.

    Very emotional night for us, we'll for me at least. We transitioned Kira from the crib to a toddler bed. For over 6 years, every day since Ian first came home from the hospital one of the kids has occupied the crib. Now trying to figure out what to do with the crib. Maybe we can find a homeless shelter for women.

    That's actually a good idea. I'd contact any of your local charity agencies and see if they have a need for a used baby crib because those organizations frequently use them for one purpose or another. Good luck. I hope somebody else can find a use for it.

    Donating the crib is a great idea. That's what we did when our youngest outgrew it. It does tug at the heartstrings, doesn't it?

    When I found out that the touchscreen controls in my car had a wallpaper option that can be displayed at all times...as a Trek fan, I knew what I had to do.

    That might be the most awesome dashboard display I've seen since the last time I watched one of the Back to the Future movies.

    That's just wallpaper, amirite? Meaning, the radio doesn't actually work like that? Because THAT would be epic.

    I was kind of wondering the same thing.

    I agree, finding another home for it is important to me. Especially where it can do the most good. I have a few calls out to places, I'm waiting to hear back from.

    My CRV has them too and no, they're just jpegs. I've got LCARS ones, a Back to the the future one, a SHIELD one and a KITT one. I like a geeky dashboard. :D

    Thanks. I had the feeling it was just glorified wallpaper but wanted to know for sure. There are some tablet and smartphone apps that use Okudagram displays and actually function as interfaces, though, and I think a few of them are available at the Google Play Store.

    I currently have a 2008 Mac Pro, while still working amazingly great, I do think it's time to update. So I keep waffling between the new Mac Pro and the new 27" iMac 5K Retina.

    Too small! I want the one my organic professor had on his desk. That thing had to be over 40"
