Want to know the current Screen Size?

Here's something I threw together last night because some people were frustrated trying to figure out the size of their screen at any given time.  Hopefully someone finds it helpful.  I am experimenting with using it to setup absolute layouts on different devices & orientations where the other layout engines fail me.

Looks useful, thanks Sean!
I did something similar, but it was more of a quick hack without the signal niceties.


If you could now please create something that gives me the size of a font...
