    Hey all.

    I haven't yet started delving too deeply into programming on the mac yet, but I have been looking to start.

    Right now I have a couple questions...
    Firstly, and somewhat unrelated, does the MBP's backlit keyboard have many LED's under it providing the light? maybe one per key or something?

    If so, I was curious if there's a way to build a script telling the lights under certain keys to light up when pressed and dim for about a half second after... Giving the impression of a ghostly following of light behind the users' typing.

    Possible? I found an article here about events turning on the keyboard for new mail alerts, but this pertains somewhat differently as I'm looking towards hardware performances...

    Bump... Anyone?

    On an unrelated note, where are the scripts to run the trackpad? I want to make some adjustments to it. Reassign 3 fingered web browsing to switch between tabs instead of back and forward
