My packs of Sugru (www.sugru.com) arrived yesterday, so I was looking around for things to hack better.

Downside of being a Mac only household is that we've not got too many ergonomic problems but as I was plugging in a new firewire drive on my iMac, which has somewhat restricted access (it's backed up against a sloping wall and can't be rotated easily as it's set into a model railway layout) I realised I could do a Sugru based solution to help work out where the ports are when fiddling around trying to plug stuff in blind. (an old coder's trick is to have a mirror on the wall behind your computer but that's impractical in this particular case).

each port type now has its own code of bumps (I'd have done them more elegantly but the same lack of access and visibility restricted my modelling finesse [Smile] )
