Electrical Engineering

Don't tell my Dad, but I was messing around with the "dark side" of engineering tonight.

I'm trying to modify a computer's ATX power supply so I have an ample supply of 12 volts DC to power my LED strips. (Un)fortunately, there seems to be a number of fail-safes in place to prevent shorts and overloads, and I have only circumvented one of them thus far. I'll have to go back to the forums to learn a little more, but it will wait til after I get some sleep.

It works!
