I have to take another crack at constructing the collar. My soldering/assembly technique was not dog-battle-hardened sufficiently. Kind of a pain, cause I think I trimmed the LED leads a bit too short to do it properly -- and my wallet would prefer not to have to buy more blue LEDs. He just looks so good in blue light.
On the way to my place last night, bucy got a new US-translated anime magazine which came with a DVD of episode 1 of "noir". As they say, the first episode is free. More fun watching it on the Wall than lange's laptop, although it was dubbed.
