add-on CPU load meters

With the recent discussions of the Be liquidation sale, I was wracking
my brain for the project/website of an *analog* CPU load meter. Someone
out there wrote a Linux driver to spit out CPU load on the parallel
port, to which is attached a simple ladder-type D-to-A and an analog
panel meter for CPU load.

I can *not* find this again, even after an hour of Googling, Altavista-ing
and Freshmeating. Anybody else remember this? Got any URLs?

It would be a blast to watch the needle peg when, say, you fired up
a CPU pig of a game or were digesting /usr/spool/news or some such.
It would be less interesting on a system running, say, Seti-At-Home
where the load is more-or-less constant.
