Thanks Crossroads, those 8x1 LCD's are pretty cool, just cant get them on my fav electronics superstore... ebay lol
Good idea with the 7-segment displays, going to look into that asap !
Also thanks loads @ Semicolo !!
Thats a great idea to use bigger font sizes !
I was only just looking at a similar thread, cant believe i missed yours !!
Heres what i found, its a bit beyond my humble learner skills but im sure you'd know how to get the extra characters in there, not sure if you knew how to get characters as well as numerics on the LCD's:

Still, im looking for a nice cute tiny little LCD, if one exists, something like a 4x2 character LCD would be pretty cool to have, probably just day-dreaming but hope something like that does exist lol !
Thanks again for all your help so far ;-)
