Has anyone else played with creating an LCD display showing NAS data?

i am using a 4x20 LCD with a backpack from Hobbytronics to provide a uart serial interface to the display and a USB to uart adapter.

Then mapping the USB to a windows vm running on the NAS and using windows powershell to poll the NAS SNMP for basic info and displaying it the on the screen.

A bit convoluted and its based on something i cobbled together a few years ago for monitoring some home servers.. Still needs some work though...
