    i would call this a lazy mod but it is a mod nonetheless, i bought a clear ps/2 keyboard and installed a cold cathode kit underneath it, the results were amazing. here is a pic of the finished product.

    I'm not so sure that's a good idea staring at a light if you type like that...

    it's not nearly as bright as the camera makes it. i took it with the lights out, so the web cam maginified the brightness
