DIY UV LED Case Fan Mod @ MHW
So, I put my thinking cap on and wondered if I could get some ultraviolet LED’s to install on this fan? A call to the local Radio Shack proved futile. It seems that you can have any color you want there, as long as it is green or red! After looking around a bit, I found some at All Electronics for about $1.75 each. That’s a bit pricey for LED’s but bright UV versions are hard to find

Seagate Cheetah 10k.6 SCSI 320 Reviewed

Seagate is now on to their sixth generation of 10k rpm SCSI drives, which is no longer the fastest spindle speed. However, with a data density that claims 36 gigabytes per platter, the Cheetah 10k.6 series boasts a maximum storage capacity of 146 gigabytes - couple these specifics with claimed 4.7 ms seek times and an Ultra320 interface, Seagate has created an extremely attractive hard drive.
