Basically, a display built into a drive bay, run using displaylink over USB. Forked the linux kmscon to create a console subsystem that just drove this display, ran a modified 'htop' on it.
Capable of transparent/alpha/colorkey BLT, gradients, and bresenham lines.
Showed an animated 'busy' icon based on my status, outside my office door at work. Featured on HaD, 03/19/2009.
