    does anyone knwo where i can find a link or thread to something that was posted before about a type of material that was luminescent...i remember it being in a thread here about lighting up an ibook keyboard...

    ...the person(s) rigged this flat material to fit behind the keys and then modded it into the power supply to light behind the keys...it was really cool...inexpensive...it was jsut some flat paper-thin stuff

    i was takin a look at my quicksilver today and noticed that the side panels are kind of translucent...put 2 and 2 together and i remove the panels and place the lighting stuff between the metal and plastic and get lit up sides...

    can anyone help?

    I've been looking for something like that to mod my keyboard on my powerbook. Maybe write a little software app so I can have a switch for it on my desktop.
