Introduction: Mini USB LED Streetlamp (orb of Light/strobe)

It started out as me following this instructable- https://www.instructables.com/id/mini-USB-powered-Tiffany-Lamp/ . My first Tiffany lamp design didn't work out very well, so I went astray with ideas. The end result is something I like to call the Orb of Stroboscity. On my first circuit test, the orb produced a solid light, but once I'd finished everything and tested it again, for some reason it flashed like a strobe light. Hence, "The Orb of Stroboscity". Edit~ I've fixed it. It no longer works as a strobe light, and just produces a solid light. I plan on using it to light the keyboard on my new laptop.

is there a way you could make it so it strobes again? say in a way i could control the strobe frequency on my computer? at all, no?

I know I couldn't do it, but I'm sure someone might know how. o-o Like I said, the strobe-ing was a fluke.
