RE: Clock
Sadly my poor suby's in the shop or I'd have looked at this already: is the green the result only of the glass being grteen, or is the display actually glowing green too? if it's just the glass, why have none of us tried replacing it with a new piece of glass in the color we want?

The basic solution I have in mind consists of going to Home Depot and buying a sheet of plexi ~ as thick as the glass and sandwiching theatrical gel between two pieces, or simply gluing a piece to the back side of one piece about as thick as the glass. cut to fit as necessary and you have an instant pane in the polor you want without dealing with the old stuff being green.

I'm hoping to try this step first this weekend, when I have my baby back.

And thank you Trunk_Monkey for all of these write-ups, I'm hoping to use them soon.
