Blue LEDs - wiring and power questions
 
I was in my attic the other day for some reason, and I came a cross a bunch of blue LEDs that I had, now, tehy glow nicely when exposed to 9v but to seem to get quite warm.

My question really is, how can I wire them up to my PC with maximum ease?

Righty well, after a little discussion with a friend of mine I have them working off the 5v molex with 330R resistors for each one.

Magic!

Used to make red and green flashlights with LED's soldered to 9v batteries. Purloined from work long ago. The shame of it! Never bothered with resistors, they weren't made to last forever. Scared the crap out of a room mate once, making UFO noises(your guess is as good as mine!) and having the lights appear out of the dark. Tsk, tsk.
