Looks like a handy gadget, does it get hot like a GFX card?
No. Had to check to make sure. It has been on at this point for close to eight hours and still cool.

Sweet, since that post I did some research. Looks like a nice way to multi-monitorship. Now I need a bigger wall or desk to put it on, lol.

Yep, that would have been the smart way to go! No kids here, but three major family dinner parties/gifts/etc.. I also discovered that if I had ever taken the time to look at the inside of the wrapping paper, there's these magical lines ...err...grid(s) I guess! It was like a borderline Christmas Miracle to me!

Plus, I must admit - I knew of a local little shop that was open - and after 3/4 of the way done wrapping the gifts, hunched over a bed, we may have made a run and picked up 20-30 Christmas "Bags" and tissue paper. (it was either that, or a "group wrap" with a tablecloth and a twisty-tie! I chose the former.)

LOL! If it had said had one instead of had her maybe I'd have caught on. Or not.
