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.......

How do you recognise something that is still technology?

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.......
