    Hi there,
    This is a very good idea, very clever and would fool lots of people.
    Only thing I didn't like about your 'ible was your repeated request for a vote, once is enough, twice is palatable ....

    Keep up the good work,


    Thats funny, I saw that very same project
    here: http://imakeprojects.com/Projects/haunted-usb-cable/
