Why not make your own, custom digitizer?

Why not make your own, custom digitizer?

As said before I possess am the legal owner of two digitizers, graphic tablets, or what ever you wanna call them. The stationary, classic graphics tablet is usually occupied by my GF, though.

Hack the heating and your usage! For the environment AND the purse.

It is indeed surprising how many people here have never spent a minute thinking about their heating system.
