hi there!

i found some pens i think might do the trick from my local supermarket.
just asking if they're OK, because there isn't said FLUO on the package, but there is said thay are NEON. will they do?

Really hard to say. Sorry, you just have to buy and test them :)

i actually got a question about that mod:

how come your gfx card doesn't short-circuit cos such a marker is waterbased and water conducts electricity, so why doesn't it short-circuit ?

When the ink dries there won't be that much water or conductive solutions in that ink. On the other hand, these cards are sprayed with protective coatings so the ink won't be in contact with the leads. I haven't got any problems with this mod and I haven't heard anything from others that have done this so it should be safe.

just look in any ofice supply store, they usually have neon pens. best way to test if they glow under uv light, buy a battery powered uv light.

its not as bright as if u were to use a 12 volt source. but its still bright enough, make sure u put in a switch. or somehow rig it up so that when the locker is open its on, and when its closed its off. the battery would normally last me for a week or so. just turning it on between class changes, then killin it when i got to my next class. about 5 mins 5 times a day.
