I missed that GM10 part. My fault, sorry. :-)

I feel horrified thinking we're ricing up our Octanes. *shiver*
Anyway, I'll probably order some of the white LEDs. Are you using 3mm or
5mm? 3mm would be the most space efficient, but they're harder to solder
onto the bord.

For some reason SGI decided to use a red LED for the fault light. Why on
EARTH didn't they use regular white/blue/green/whatever LEDs for the
normal light? *confused*
