Didn't they use those cables for old SCSI devices?
Scratch that. Its a 3.5 inch and 5.25 inch drive cable.

It needs to be flexible tubing, and really, the smaller the better. I don't think it could be too small.

I don't think so. It's really similar to an ISA slot, but not as wide and the Pins(?) are closer together. It has 34 of them total.

But yea HD TV without HD broadcast stations?
[/RANT]
Gosh, that 4:3 stretch annoys me too. My mom likes to do that with SD channels for some reason, even though we get every channel in HD as well.

You get 768 HD in the UK? In the US, it's 1280x720. Yeah there are a few 1366x768 TVs, but nothing is recorded or broadcast that way.

Was there a specific name for the plug? I'm intrigued, mainly because it can have six devices on the same cable.

16:10 is great for computer use, but awful for video playback.I hate having to look at lit black bars when watching video. It makes black levels of the whole picture look worse.

Na, I meant 720. Didn't even know 768 TV existed.

I think they call it a 34 pin Edge Connector for the 5.25 drives and 34 pin Header connectors for 3.5 drives.

I wanna know what the pumps for

That's way too big actually. The biggest the hoses could be is aquarium airline size.

I'll PM you. I have a feeling that posting the idea here would not sit well with some of the mods.

I get ya.

I was browsing eBay and came across small pumps used for windscreen/headlamp washer systems on cars. They're usually quite small, and cheap, and the piping is the same diameter as that used with aquarium air pumps. Also you could use small pumps used on indoor water fountains.

I'm gonna have a think about the rest of the system.

Also note the nozzles used on these windscreen/headlamp washer systems too. They'll come in handy!

That'd be waaaaaay too much spray. I'll probably hack something up out of aquarium airline fittings.

Ha! Good point there. Dang.

So a fine mist isn't what you want?
