Komodo 3 - inverter circuit
The led on the motherboard’s built-in network interface is normally on and blinks off on activity, I want it the other way round. This is a simple transistor inverter circuit which controls the front mounted LED. Unfortunately the LED resistor is too small and so the LED is much too bright.

Fan and switch panel in place. The mesh is about to go on. It is stainless steel mesh meant for car and motorbike air intake pimping.

Komodo 3 - as it arrived
This is how the new server looked when it arrived. A plain HP Netserve E800 with two 933MHz Pentium 3s, 768MB RAM and 3 36GB SCSI harddrives. The drives did contain a copy of Windows 2003 and a company’s complete customer database, but I wiped all that.
