    What a great project, thanks for sharing! I’ve been all over the more expensive versions ($1000+) of this so I’m thrilled. I was pretty sure there was a good way to DIY this, just wasn’t sure how until now!

    This is unrelated to this particular post, pretty though it is. I was wondering if it wouldn’t be possible to have a starring system in place for each of your posts – for people to show how much they like a particular hack. I don’t suppose all of the posts will get a response, but it will make it easier for you to choose the top ten or twenty at the end of the year :) It would be a bit unfair for the newer posts though: not enough time for people to have seen them compared to the older ones.

  3. Looks fantastic. Nicely done.
