      Getting back with some results on the plexiglass
      bug that I built. And by-the-way, thanks to all
      that emailed me with ideas. Very helpful.

      The bottom line......the thing is VERY temperature
      sensitive. The spacing of the dots varies greatly
      with a difference in room temperature. Well, it is
      plastic.....not real metal.....Grin!

      So, looks like it is back to the drawing board.

      I will say, that a plexiglass straight key or a
      plexiglass side-swiper (Cootie key) is easily a
      do-able project, but the plex bug has problems.

      Thanks again for the helpful comments!
