Story:
Ei mikšš hššppŲsempi modi minkš tein, mutta pistetššn nšytille silti.

Irrotin kylmškatodin suojaputkestaan ja pidensin johtoa, ettš se ylettyy monitorin alle. Nyt nškee nšpytellš pimešssškin jos ei osaa nšppšimistŲš kuin omia taskuja.

in English:

Not much of a mod but i'm still gonna show it.

I removed the coldcathode from it's protective acryltube and made the power cord longer so that it would reach the monitor. Now you are able to type in the dark if you don't know the keyboard like the back of your hand.

öö eiks se katodi ylikuumene kun otit suojaputken veke?öh

Well, I've killed an inverter with too long cable to cathode :/...
But there was fantastic effect after it :) The cathode was lightning just into halgf of its lenght :)) And when you have moved those two cables from cathode closer together, the light bar was shorter... :) Strange effect :) Thinking about making it work with music :)

pist√§ kuule tonne mustvaloneonvaloputki tonne yl√∂s ja v√§√§nn√§t uv-kyn√§ll√§ noitten n√§pp√§imien kirjaimet... HYV√Ą TULEE

Johtoa pitää pidentää silleen että katodin ja virtahakkurin väli ei pitene. Eli hakkurin ja esim. powerin välinen johto pidennetään. En oo varma että onko paksumpi johto parempi, luultavasti ei vaikutusta paksumman ja ohkasemman välillä.

Vode Densu30.01.2005 21:17
Hmm pidensit johtoa siis? Mä jos laitan katodiin yli n.40cm piuhan se ei pala enää :| heti ku lyhentää ni toimii. Kuin pitkä piuha sul sit on? ja auttaako siihen sit jos on paksumpaa johtoo.

Forzi21.01.2005 23:58
ihan siisti

CoB Spider: Enpä usko että oon sama tyyppi. Itä-suomessa päin oon.

CoB Spider20.01.2005 19:59
Isosceles, mistä oot oikeen kotosin, nimittäin on kaverillaa tasan sama näppis ja näyttö (lieneekö sama tyyppi?) ;s

Isosceles20.01.2005 09:46
The cathode takes it power from my computer. And the inverter is attached under the monitor. I was gonna leave the inverter into my computers case but i find out that the inverter could not push the power through a longer cable.

*anonymous*20.01.2005 05:57
where is that thing connected to?

*anonymous*19.01.2005 22:39
inverters dont kill, its a very low amprage, so it will only shock (still hurts) if you were to touch the anode that runs along the outside of the tube you could get a shock but it wouldnt be significant

Isosceles19.01.2005 20:48
That's true that the inverter has got high voltages. But i don't think that the actual cathodelight tube is dangerous. The acrylicpipe is only there to protect the light because it's so fragile.

Nado19.01.2005 20:28
aren't there high voltages? inverters aren't just for fun ;)

Isosceles19.01.2005 19:08
Opelrunille, väri tosissaan on violetti. Ja en käytä konetta nenä ruudussa kiinni :) kyllä tässä on ihan riittävästi nenän ja näytön välissä tilaa, istun aika takakenossa.

----------

To Nado, that is right i took it out from the acrylic tube. And how could i kill my self doing that?

---------

It's mounted with superglue. And it holds.

Nado19.01.2005 18:15
omfg, you took the ccfl out of it housing?! dude, don't kill yourself plz...

moe19.01.2005 18:11
I think he meant how is it mounted
-----------------------------------
Luulen että hän tarkoitti miten se on kiinitetty.

Kiva näppis BTW, mulla samanlaine :D

Opelrun19.01.2005 17:54
Hyvä väri ainaskin (Jos toi violetti/purppura on, eikä kameran vääristämä). ...mut käytäks sä konetta nenä ruudussa kiinni, kun näppis näkyy olevan ihan ruudus kiinni, osittain peräti sen alla ?

Isosceles19.01.2005 09:49
Yep, that's right i mounted cathode under the monitor, and there is and wide empty space where i putted the cathode. So it can't be seen from the front

WAGH19.01.2005 06:06
Hey... are you saying that you mounted the cathode under the front of the monitor? Coz I've been trying to figure out a nice way of doing a similar thing...
