    Colour change express!

    Got a tad bored the other day, so I painted my monitor, mouse and keyboard......

    The keyboard and mouse match my case, which is black outside, yellow inside) , and the monitor is Ford Calypso Blue.










    Those MS Intllimouses are pretty easy to disassemble, but popping each of the keys out of the keyboard was a PITA.......
    We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works.
    How do you recognise something that is still technology?
    A good clue is if it comes with a manual...

    Yup Be very careful!

    There is a lot of charge stored in the internal gubbins of a monitor. Leave it off for a few hours before you start, and don't touch anything electrical inside.......
