That's not a problem. I was also interested in the info if I ever get
around to using it for a simh front panel blink'n version. Unless a Nova
3 drops in my lap. (and still would want info).
Thanks for the tips. I see that the foxdata site lamps don't appear
quite as bright as the chookfest ones, which is interesting. I'm
thinking now if I do anything it will be the LED route, so will evaluate
that, as I agree opening the thing back up will suck.
Jay did your DG stuff on the back dock move? just curious. PM if you like.
