PowerMate+CeePeeYou = Disco!
Authored by: victory on Oct 15, '02 04:30:27AM

Okay, so I may have actually found a marginally useful(?) application for this hint -- tonight I got a Griffin PowerMate USB knob ('blue throbby-thing') and was thrilled to find that it works with a favorite haxie of mine: Unsanity's CeePeeYou menubar CPU load monitor. Basically, CeePeeYou can be configured to flash the PowerMate's blue LED at a rate that corresponds to the current CPU usage. The heavier the system load, the faster the light flashes. I wanted to see what it would look like under max load. Well, using this hint, I got the PowerMate flashing like a strobe light!
