oooo pink PSU's... now theres a idea...
Stop it. I know you and I have just been talking about Pink light from RGB LED's earlier. Next you will have those LED's under the PSU so it gives off a soft pink glow :twisted:

Swap the green LEDs (power & floppy) to red ones and go retro, like the original 520ST & SF314 drives, you know you want to.
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.
