cold cathe question
i just ordered 2 cold cath kits, and i know that many people turn it off and the such. is there a switch on the light it self that comes with it? or is that something that you buy seperatly?
here is the link http://www.nexfan.com/12cocalibtwe.html just in case that matters. the site doesnt say though.

Most kits come with a switch. If yours does not, simply go to Radio Shack and get a 12VDC switch and install it.

There shoud be a swtich on them that comes with the light. Athough it does not say on the site. The ones that I got came with a switch.

I found this site yesterday, from what I have seen so far in it its a good resource for modding, has a few tutorials in it on how to do things to your box.d[o.o]b

Looks like a good deal Brian. I may have to check into that somemore myself. Let me know how you like it. A couple suggestions about your site... Consider changing the background color (don't you hate surfing late at night and you go to a page that's really bright) nothing too exotic like mine, maybe a light gray like the one on this site. The color of your used links (vlink) could be better. There's not much contrast between it and the black background. Some people may have a hard time reading it. It's coming along nice though.

if i change the background to gray (hmmm...gray or grey?...oh well) the components will have a white box around them. i guess i can use photoshop to make their background gray, right?

Actually, if you have Photoshop, you can give the photos a transparent background. That way, if you decide later to change the page color again, you won't have to worry about changing the photos again. This is all just my oppinion you know, so you can tell me to mind my own business if you like!

how do you make stuff transparent with photoshop? im new to the program, so i basically only know how to draw a line

I'm not really good at it either. You may want to post a question in the "Graphic Design" Forum. I did it once before. If I remember right, I used the "magic wand" to select the image, then there's a wizard you can use to give it a transparent background. BTW, while you're working on the photo in PS, you may as well optimize it for posting to the web. That'll make the file size smaller, so it'll be better for people with dial-up to look at your site.
