    This is an awesome feature - that start-up image would be a good place to put your name and contact info in case of lost & found - and even a photo (for something like this I like to use a photo of my dear wife with a reminder not to kill myself while out having fun...lest I be in real trouble if I do :wink:).

    Questions is, what are the right dimensions/resolution for this image? Anyone know? Thanks!

    I haven't tried it out yet but I found this on their site.
    Resize an image to fit your Perdix Screen?

    I have a head shot of me, my name, email, and phone number. Maximizing the chance to get something back to me.

    Ah, from the developer:
    "These are the supported image extensions: *.jpg, *.png, *.jpeg, *.jfif, *.jpe, *.gif
...
    The file size does not matter, as long as it is the dimensions: 320 x 240"

    Uh-oh, now thinking about what kind of whacky animated GIFs might work there...(assuming animated GIFs are supported....).

    Pretty fun feature. Don't know if animations will work but uploading an image was really easy. (Hellraiser is there to ward off would-be thieves.) InkedInkedperdix screen_LI.jpg

    I have my name and a contact number on the initial screen in the (probably unlikely) event that I lose it and someone decides to return it to me.

    Why move the AI to a hose? Now it can flop around and hit the tank and cause potential damage. I am against the idea for what its worth.
