Rumor has it that Jules Richardson may have mentioned these words:

>Does anyone know when blue LEDs first became commercially available?

Available? I would think about 6-7 years ago...

Affordable? I would pare that guesstimate down to about 3-4 years; RatShack
only started carrying 'em about 2 years ago, IIRC.

>It's possible that someone's fitted them years later of course!

And they did. ;-)

> They certainly make the systems stand out though :-)

I'll bet!
