Scrolly LCD thing

Yo, I want one/some of those scrolly LCD ticker things, where words can scroll to the left, or from the bottom, or flash, or change colors, etc.

I want them in the office, showing webserver hit rates, and new incoming posts, and inbox sizes, and other fun/interesting system stats.

What are those called? All my google searches return these tiny little LCD displays people mount in the computer cases. I want a big, red one!

And whatever it is, it should be controlled by a serial cable, so I can program it from Linux. (USB has too small a range... I don't want a computer 6 meters away)

Update: yes, I'm on crack. LED, not LCD. Acronyms schmackronyms.
